An untitled work from Henry Farny is one of the highlighted lots in the upcoming Capsule x Litchfield: Reflections sale, presented by Capsule Auctions. This 1896 piece shows a Native American on horseback near a water body. Originally from Alsace Lorraine, France, Farny’s family moved to the United States when he was five years old and settled in Western Pennsylvania. They lived closely with the Seneca people, which attracted Farny’s interest in Indigenous culture. Throughout his life, Farny centered his work on Native Americans, which won him great popularity and acclaim.
The auction offers over 200 lots of fine art pieces, including works by Belmore Browne, George Chambers, and Louis Moeller. Browne’s Untitled (Mountain Scene) is among the key lots in the sale. An American artist and mountaineer, Browne was best known for capturing his explorations of Alaska, Washington State, and the Canadian Rockies. The available work shows mountain peaks, pine trees, and a river. A bronze sculpture by Alexander Phimister Proctor is also available. Proctor was best known for his monumental animal bronzes. Between 1911 and 1932, Proctor placed six significant works in Oregon public places. View each of these lots and register to bid on Capsule Auctions.
