Instead of embracing Abstraction, many of Andrew Wyeth’s works focused on the natural landscape and everyday scenes from his rural Pennsylvanian life. One of Wyeth’s pieces, Helga in Orchard, is a portrait of the neighboring housekeeper that he painted over 200 times in the 1980s. This watercolor will be featured in the upcoming Important Single-Owner Collection auction offered by Leland Little. Other Wyeth works available in this auction include sketches and drawings, subject studies, and a bronze cast of the artist’s hands.
This sale of fine art will also include various decorative art items, glassworks, and chess pieces. A 19th–century Russian punch set will be highlighted. Each charki, or small drinking cup, is plated in gold on the inside and decorated with an intricate navy, turquoise, and white pattern. The punch bowl and cups each rest on three claw feet. Another lot of interest is a French chalice made in the Gothic style. It dates back to 1881 and includes quatrefoil and masonic details. View the full catalog and register to bid on Leland Little.
