Major Auction Highlights
Figurative artworks by European and American artists represent the top lots this fall season. With two works we look ahead to the cold weather: from folk artist Anna Mary Robertson, better known as Grandma Moses, we have on offer a humorous scene of a whole family working together to apprehend a plump turkey for their meal, titled Catching the Turkey, Thanksgiving (Lot 305, estimated between $90,000-120,000). Realist painter Andrew Wyeth depicts a late autumn landscape with a barn, frosty, dark branches, and an icy stream in a 1976 drybrush watercolor titled, Corn and Grist (Lot 286, $150,000-250,000).

Several works continue the figurative theme indoors with two still life works: British artist Christopher (Kit) Wood’s painting, Anemones in a Glass Jar (Lot 381, $70,000-90,000), portrays a vibrant bouquet of pink, violet, blue, and red anemones bursting from a clear, glass jar. American painter Wayne Thiebaud is known for his paintings of sweets, and his woodcut print, Candy Apples (Lot 91, $30,000-50,000), depicts nine glistening treats ready to be eaten.

Passion is unbound in the figurative, compact sculpture, titled Amantes (Lot 427, $40,000-60,000), depicting two lovers indistinctly intertwined, by the Mexican artist Francisco Zúñiga. The fusion of the two bodies, cut from the same elegant black marble, conspicuously characterizes the act of love-making. The composition by French artist J. Jean Dubuffet’s ink drawing, Situation LXXXXI (a l'arbre) (Lot 425, $35,000-55,000), is equally dense as the space around the central wandering, cartoonish figure is filled with doodle-like lines, semi-figurative forms, and patterns.

Other featured highlights include, but are not limited to:
• M. C. Escher, Contrast (Order and Chaos), 1950, lithograph (Lot 64, $8,000-10,000)

• Richard Estes, Holland Hotel, 1980, color screenprint (Lot 67, $15,000-25,000)

• Annie Leibovitz, Rolling Stones, New York, 1985, dye transfer print (Lot 160, $4,000-6,000)

• Edwin Lord Weeks, Market in Ispahan, c. 1885, oil on canvas (Lot 233, $30,000-50,000)

• William Zorach, A Pair of Bronze Pumas (Lot 375, $20,000-30,000)

• Ilya Bolotowsky, Diamond with Three Blues, 1969, acrylic on canvas (Lot 448, $18,000-22,000)

• Clement L. Meadmore, THROUGH WAY, 1965, steel (Lot 452, $15,000-25,000)

• Jane Peterson, North Shore Harbor View, oil on canvas (Lot 320, $40,000-60,000)

• Francisco Zúñiga, Madre con Niño de Pie, bronze (Lot 399, $15,000-20,000)
