A "wild cherry" on top: Freeman's American Art & Pennsylvania Impressionists Auction results
From the American Art section, Andrew Wyeth's "Grist Mill" brought the second highest price at $182,500.
PHILADELPHIA, PA.- Collectors crowded the sale room at Freeman's American Art & Pennsylvania Impressionists auction on June 8th for a chance to win paintings by American artists such as Glackens and Wyeth as well as Pennsylvania Impressionists. One of Freeman's most anticipated auctions of the season, bidding throughout the sale was fierce with four of the five top lots all going to local private collections. The 154 lot sale achieved $1.7 million and the Pennsylvania Impressionist market continued to draw buyers. "Wild Cherry" by Daniel Garber achieved the highest price of the day at $235,500.

From the American Art section, Andrew Wyeth's "Grist Mill" (above) brought the second highest price at $182,500 and artist Martha Walter's "Beach Scene" (below) was the center of a bidding war before selling for $104,500.

As noted earlier Garber's "Wild Cherry" commanded the most attention from buyers within the Pennsylvania Impressionist segment of the auction. A smaller painting by Garber "Cloud Shadows" brought $68,500 and a painting by Fern Isabel Coppedge depicting a yellow house on the Delaware River achieved $75,500--both paintings doubling their estimates.
