NEW YORK, NY.- Strong and steady bidding at the American Art auction at Bonhams New York drew nearly $4.3 million in sales.

Highlights of the afternoon include:

· The sale of George Bellows’ Two Women, 1924, one of the last figural works by the prominent early 20th century American artist, which sold for $1,265,000.

· Lady in a Garden, an exquisite oil on canvas by renowned American Impressionist Childe Hassam, painted circa 1890, which achieved $905,000.

· A work by the great illustrator and cartoonist, John Philip Falter, titled Golf Driving Range that far exceeded its high estimate to realize $197,000. The work was the cover illustration for the July 26, 1952 issue of The Saturday Evening Post. The painting received great interest from telephone bidders, and finally sold to a bidder in the auction room.

· Daniel Garber’s Country Village, which sold for $173,000; William McGregor Paxton’s The Visitor, which sold for $109,375; Reginald Marsh’s Off to the Movies, Love Affair is Playing!, which realized $90,000; Paul Howard Manship’s sculpture, Venus Anadyomene that achieved $82,500; and Suzy Frelinghuysen’s cubist work, Composition, which fetched $77,500. The final price of each of these works was well over the high estimate.

Kayla Carlsen, head of sales in the American Art department, said, “We are pleased with the results of today’s sale – especially with the strong prices achieved on our top lots. In what appears to be a selective market for American Art, the best examples of any genre continue to generate competitive bidding when they are estimated fairly.”

The next American Art auction will be held in May 2015, in New York. Consignments for this sale are now invited.
