More than 250 examples of California art, in varying mediums by an eclectic group of artists, will come before bidders during the Jan. 24 auction at John Moran Auctioneers.
The oil painting "Tropical Scene" by Louis Mignot soared past its estimate, finishing at $120,000, to lead all lots in a 275-lot auction presented by Shannon's Fine Art Auctioneers.
Of the more than 1,200 lots brought to auction during Ahlers & Ogletrees' first auction of 2016, an untitled watercolor by Chughtai took top honors.
The first large, pastel artwork by artist Frank Reaugh, to appear at auction will make its debut during Heritage Auctions' May 16 Texas Art Auction.
Auctionata entered the realm of fine art auctions June 21 with just 100 lots, but it finished the sale with many pieces surpassing presale estimates, and a history-making sale of the well-known painting, "The Reclining Woman."
