American Paintings & Sculpture
Freeman’s American Paintings & Sculpture specialists have established an international reputation for the successful sale of oil paintings, watercolors, sculpture and illustrations by American artists. Offering the finest works from the nineteenth to mid twentieth centuries, our fine art specialists understanding of current market conditions has resulted in strong sale results and have helped established many world auction records for significant American artists.
Previous Freeman’s sales reflect the diverse traditions associated with American art, such as American Impressionism, the Hudson River School, the Ashcan School, American Impressionism, Social Realism, and Modernism. Many of the artists either have taught or studied at the nearby Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the nation's oldest art school, founded in 1805, the same year as Freeman's.
Recent successes at Freeman’s include a selection of art that spanned three generations of the Wyeth family, including an Andrew Wyeth tempera painting entitled “Winter Corn Fields”, which garnered $1,450,000 at auction. Over the years, Freeman’s has set multiple world-record prices for artists such as Asher B. Durand and John George Brown, and exceptional prices achieved for Carl Clemens Moritz Rungius, Andrew Wyeth, Fairfield Porter, John George Brown, and others.
Freeman’s offers American paintings and sculpture twice a year in our auctions of American Art & Pennsylvania Impressionists. Please contact one of our specialists to schedule an appointment for your private and complimentary consultation.
