The Bunte Furniture and Fine Art Auction of Nov. 29-30 will be one of their major auctions of this year. Two paintings stand out as special gems of the auction in an auction which actually will have many gems.
An Antoine Bouvard painting, estimated at $30,000-$50,000, will attract many bidders, but the showcase painting is a winter scene at night by George William Sotter.
Sized 22 inches by 26 inches it is estimated to bring $150,000 to $250,000. This painting was discovered by Bunte’s staff during an estate appraisal. The heirs had no idea of the value and are thrilled with this valuable find.
Sotter was born in Philadelphia and often painted scenes of Bucks County, where he made his home. Winter scenes at night were one of his favorite subjects, and this is a prime example.
