Vietnamese painter Lê Phổ was well known for his distinct paintings that combined European inspiration and Chinese influences. However, his subjects also comprised traditional Vietnamese imagery such as birds and bamboo branches. An oil painting on silk mounted on Masonite by Lê Phổ is a key highlight of the upcoming auction, offered by Case Antiques. Titled Jeunes Filles aux Bouquets, the artwork portrays three women amidst flower vases with a yellow background. George E. Hughes’ oil on board titled Couples at the Beach also leads the listings. It was an illustration for the cover of The Saturday Evening Post (August 2, 1952 edition). It depicts a high-angle view of people enjoying a sunny day at the beach.
A rare historic lot may be of interest to memorabilia collectors. It is a 35-star flag of the USS Kearsarge used during battle with the CSS Alabama in June of 1864, along with commendation and photograph. It is the only US flag representative of a state admitted during the American Civil War and was in official use only for two years.
