When painter Harry Hoffman visited the Bahamas for the first time in 1916, he became interested in underwater scenes and seascapes. He developed a special glass-bottomed bucket to see his underwater subjects more clearly and used his Impressionist brushwork to recreate it on canvas. His expeditions to the Galápagos Islands, British Guiana, and Bermuda inspired some of the most noteworthy paintings of his career. One of Hoffman’s signature landscape paintings is mounted on a folding screen and available for sale in the upcoming Ahlers & Ogletree auction.
Period antiques and fine art from the United States, the U.K., and Europe will be showcased as well. This includes a Flemish tapestry mounted on linen. The 18th-century textile uses the Baroque style in a genre scene of boys playing in a courtyard. An 1872 landscape painting by George Hetzel and a 134-piece set of sterling silver flatware in the “Anglia” pattern by Italian brand Pampaloni will also be available in the event.
