Jean Baptiste Armand Guillaumin was a French Impressionist painter and lithographer. In 1891, after he won a sum of 100,000 francs in a state lottery, Guillaumin was able to leave his government job to pursue his passion for painting. A friend of Paul Cézanne, Camille Pissarro, and Vincent Van Gogh, he influenced the early stages of the French Impressionism movement. A key lot available on the first day of the Important Summer Estates Auction, presented by Crescent City Auction Gallery, is a coastal landscape scene painted by Guillaumin.
A platinum engagement ring is among the featured jewelry lots. This piece is set with a 3.83-carat diamond, flanked by two tapered diamond baguettes. The ring comes with an official GIA report, with a VS-1 clarity grade for the center diamond. Another key lot is a white gold and diamond link bracelet. It has interlocking links and a clasp set with 39 round diamonds. A late 19th-century dining table in the Louis XVI style will be presented as well.
