Freeman’s Fine American & Pennsylvania Impressionists department features works dating from the eighteenth to early twentieth-centuries, with subjects ranging from landscapes and historical portraiture to genre paintings. Two auctions of American and Pennsylvania Impressionists are held annually in June and December. Led by Vice Chairman Alasdair Nichol, this department has earned a reputation for their impeccable knowledge, intelligently structured catalogues and consistently excellent auction results.

Previous auctions have reflected the diverse traditions associated with American art: the Hudson River School, the Ashcan School (many of these artists studied in Philadelphia), Regionalism, Western art, and illustration. Freeman's is perhaps best known for its success with the Pennsylvania Impressionist artists, selling more works by these painters than any other leading auction house at world-record prices.

 

Auction highlights include:

· James Abbott McNeill Whistler’s "Blue and White Opal – The Photographer" for $469,000.
· Daniel Garber’s "Old Farm in the Hills" sold for $457,000
· Edward Redfield’s "Early Morning Sunlight, Spring" for $362,500
· John George Brown’s "Bird Nesting" realized $375,250
· An auction record was set for Frederick DeBourg Richards, "The Glory of the Alleghenies,"  which fetched $68,500


Freeman’s attracts an international audience and therefore reaches a world-wide buying base. We are best known for continually offering quality material and our team of specialists is able to advise on the current market enabling clients to reach the most favorable results. Consignments are always welcome from single objects to entire collections and we respond with discretion and expertise. Please contact a member of our Department if you have questions or wish to discuss buying or consigningwith us.
