American painter and co-founder of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Eastman Johnson first rose to prominence during the Civil War. Best known for his depictions of everyday life, Johnson also painted portraits of prominent Americans such as Abraham Lincoln, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Nathaniel Hawthorne. One of Johnson’s oil paintings titled Woman in a Window is featured in the upcoming Jewelry & Fine Art sale, presented by Fontaine’s. The piece shows a woman staring out of a window with a red handkerchief in her right hand.
Also among the key lots is a painting titled Le Moulin de la Galette, attributed to Maurice Utrillo. Known as the “painter of Montmartre,” Utrillo was one of the few artists to depict the bohemian quarter in Paris. The present work shows a windmill, houses, and two children playing along the sidewalk. The French flag is fluttering in the background. Also available in the event is a collection of jewelry ranging from Victorian, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco styles to more contemporary pieces. Visit the Fontaine’s website to browse the full catalog and register to bid online.
