Event Description

Skinner, Inc. will auction prints, photographs and paintings on Friday, September 9th in two sessions at their Boston gallery. The prints portion of the sale will kick-off at 12 p.m.; paintings at 4 p.m. The two sessions will total over 600 lots including works by Cahoon, Parrish, Warhol, Burliuk, Corot and Utrillo.


Two prints both signed and numbered from Andy Warhol’s ten image series Cowboys and Indians will be available at the sale. As a portraitive work, Geronimo, lot 172, is consider more quintessential of Warhol’s style. It has an estimated auction value of $15,000 to $25,000. Plains Indians Shield, lot 171, has an estimate of $8,000 to $12,000. Another Warhol print Speed Skater, lot 170, will also be offered. This print is from the deluxe edition of 50 plus proofs, published by Visconti Art Spectrum, and numbered and signed. Speed Skater is expected to fetch $5,000 to $7,000 at auction.

One of the jewels of the sale is Theodore Robinson’s Hansom Cabs, lot 523, which is estimated to sell between $120,000 and $180,000. Robinson is considered one of America's premier Impressionists and is also credited with increasing the appreciation of French Impressionism in the United States. Robinson died young at the age of 44. His illness inhibited him from carrying large canvases outdoors, and, as such, many of his works are more intimate in scale.

Features from European artists include a David Davidovich Burliuk work, probably a Connecticut view, Lake Scene with Boat, lot 446, estimated at $20,000 to $30,000; two works by the French artist Jean Dufy Chasse à courre à Preuilly-sur-Claise, lot 591, and Place de l'Opéra et rue de la Paix, lot 593, both gouache on paper and estimated to be worth $15,000 to $25,000 each; and Thomas Buttersworth, Sr.’s The Battle of Trafalgar, lot 345, coming to Skinner from a private New Hampshire collection and expected to sell for $50,000 to $70,000. Also available at the sale, French artist Eugène Louis Boudin’s Les Bords de la Touques à Trouville Pendant les Grandes Marées, lot 341, was part of the collection of  J. Eastman Chase, the Boston art dealer. Its auction value is estimated to be $70,000 to $90,000.

Previews will be held Wednesday, September 7th from 12:00 to 5:00 p.m.; Thursday, September 8th from 12:00 to 8:00 p.m.; and Friday, September 9th from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. On Thursday, September 8th there will be a Fine Art Gallery Walk presented by Robin Starr, Director of Skinner’s Paintings & Prints Department with a reception at 5:30 p.m. and Gallery Walk at 6:00 p.m. at the Skinner, Inc gallery, 63 Park Plaza, Boston, MA.
