About Auction HouseAtlanta Auction Gallery started about 15 years ago, back in March 2006, with just a small room and the support of our friends and family. Our love of auctions and all of the unique and unusual treasures we often found at them had resulted in quite a hefty inventory and the need for extra space. Starting an auction was a way for us to create this space and continue cultivating our curiosities in searching for the perfect furniture, artwork, and trinkets.

Atlanta Auction Gallery’s Summer Vacation Sale Offers Abstract Painting by Alma Woodsey Thomas and Ceramic Table Vase by Scheurich Keramik
The upcoming Summer Vacation sale, offered by Atlanta Auction Gallery, will feature an abstract painting by Alma Woodsey Thomas. An American artist known for Abstract Expressionist works and Pointillism, Alma Woodsey Thomas uses a range of colors in her paintings, all the while having her own distinct style. The paintings she created were meticulously planned, despite their apparent spontaneity. In Thomas' paintings, nature is a powerful inspiration and a shaper that consistently refreshes her work. Her yard and the parks in the Washington area were studied for their hues, patterns, and movement. To convey the shifting colors in the plants as they swayed in the wind, she painted with dabs and strokes. The available work is striking in its bright colors and excellent condition. Another top lot in this sale is an oil on canvas painting by Antoine Bouvard. The French landscape artist Antoine Bouvard is renowned for painting scenes of Venetian canals in warm tones with a hazy light associated with sunsets. The artist often painted under the pseudonym Marc Aldine. The available painting, titled Venetian Canal with Gondola, shows a canal at sunset in Venice alongside a gondola driver. Additional examples of interest include a black and yellow striped ceramic art pottery table vase by Scheurich Keramik, a Greg Copeland wood dowel and block wall sculpture, and more.

Claude Monet Painting and Michael Simon Pottery Lead Marvelous Mid Century, Pottery & Paintings Sale
A train from Normandy with a large bellow of smoke and steam rising in the air is depicted in an oil painting attributed to Claude Monet. A large crowd of people surround the train. A closer look shows the colorful details of the street and people. Monet’s signature verifies that the painting dates back to 1877. The painting is housed in an ornate carved wooden frame with detailed information on the provenance written in Romanian. The painting was once owned by former French President Valéry Giscard d’Estaing, who gifted it to Dr. Ana Aslan in 1975. It changed hands several times before being passed down through the descent of a Romanian Army General to the current owner. The painting is available in the upcoming Marvelous Mid Century, Pottery & Paintings auction, presented by Atlanta Auction Gallery. Among the available pottery lots, a flattened ceramic bottle with a bird motif by American ceramist Michael Simon is notable. The MS stamped bottle is slip-glazed with a single squared shoulder. Like most of Simon’s salt-fired stoneware, it is functional and decorative with simple nature-based geometric motifs like fish, birds, trees, and linear, abstract designs. Another antique piece comes from 16th to 17th-century Tibet. It is a storage chest with a front panel depicting two dragons holding an offering bowl surrounded by a repeating ‘Kati rimo' brocaded design influenced by Chinese silks from the Yuan and early Ming dynasties. The entire chest is clad in brass banding with the original lock clasp. Find the listed items and more online auctions on Bidsquare.
