Freeman's most recent American Art & Pennsylvania Impressionists auction featured vistas of the Pennsylvania countryside, visions of the American West, and iconic works of illustration art. The standing room only crowd vied against bidders from the internet and the phones, resulting in a total of $1.8 million in sales for works by some of the most significant names in American art. The top lot of the day was Edward Willis Redfield's "Road to the River" which brought $200,000, asserting Freeman's place as the go-to auction house for Pennsylvania Impressionists.
Amongst the highlights of the American Art & Pennsylvania Impressionists sale on June 4 is sure to be a magnificent and impressively scaled oil by Daniel Garber entitled 'Lone Sycamore'. Painted circa 1940 and estimated at $400,000-600,000, it comes fresh to the market from a private Pennsylvanian collection having previously been in the collection of Harold D. Saylor, a judge on the Philadelphia Orphan's Court and one of Garber's leading patrons. It is interesting to note that while on show at the 136th Annual Exhibition at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in 1941, it was awarded the Popular Prize, the last of the artist's paintings to win a popular vote at a major venue.
