MILFORD, CONN. – Shannon’s Fine Art Auctioneers will host their last auction of the year next Thursday, November 19th at 2PM. The sale of 242 lots includes American and European Art from the 19th and early 20th centuries, Modern and Contemporary art, Fine Prints, sculpture, and drawings. Bidding is available by absentee and online through Invaluable.com.

The top lot in the sale is a rare drawing by Dutch artist Rudolf Bonnet. The drawing of two women carrying water jugs on their heads, “Waterdraagsters,” was painted while the artist was living and working in Bali. Bonnet devoted his life to artistic and philanthropic efforts to promote Balinese art. His genre scenes of Balinese people capture the spirit of life in Bali and are widely collected by enthusiasts of Indonesian art.

Another rare gem leading the November 19th sale is an Eliseo Meifren painting of his garden in Majorca. The painting was originally shipped to the United States for the Pan-Pacific International Exhibition in 1915, where the artist was awarded a Medal of Honor. It was sold at The Anderson Galleries in New York City before the Spanish Commissioner returned home in 1919 and has since descended into a private collection. This fresh-to-the-market painting beautifully depicts the artist’s colorful garden in a Spanish Impressionist style.

American paintings in the sale are led by a large Antonio Jacobsen of the U.S.M. Pennsylvania—measuring 32 x 60 inches, it is an impressive composition. Other highlights in American Art include paintings by New Englander Eric Sloane; Hudson River School paintings by Arthur Parton and Samuel L. Gerry; 19th century genre paintings by Hamilton Hamilton and Francis Coates Jones; Western art by Frank McCarthy and Carl Pugliese; and American Impressionism by Richard Hayley Lever, Emile Gruppe, Clarence Kerr Chatterton, Charles Warren Eaton and more.

An original work on paper by Robert Rauschenberg, Untitled from 1983 leads the Contemporary offerings at a $10,000-15,000 estimate. This solvent transfer with acrylic and graphite presents a unique opportunity for new and seasoned collectors to own an original Rauschenberg at an approachable price. A modern abstract by George L.K. Morris on paper is another such opportunity for a collector to buy an original, quality work by a highly sought-after artist, estimated at only $7,000-9,000.
