The tale of Jonah and the Whale has led many to believe that one cannot run away from God’s plans- shaping both our morality and belief. This simple yet mythical story has been transformed into a hand-carved toy and is available at The Sipson Island Collection by Eldred’s Auction. Holding onto the myth, this piece kicks off the sale with the lowest bid at $20.
Along with a variety of furniture, the auction exhibits a blend of fine and decorative arts from the 20th century. It features some prominent artists, such as Richard J. Watson, Hugh Henry Breckenridge, and Mark Catesby, whose works bring delight to the collection. Leading the lots is an oil on board by Hugh Henry Breckenridge showcasing his craftsmanship at its best. The elegant touches in his work of Abstract Expressionism set the mood of the auction. Sharing the aura of the piece is a painting by Richard J. Watson who is known to be an icon in the Philadelphia art world. His landscape painting is more than soothing to the eye; it transports the observer into a moonlit moment of dusk.
Art continues to fascinate all with not just paintings but also other forms that are relatively rare to find. The woven basket is one of the oldest known Native American form of art that is also presented at the auction. View more items and register to bid online at Invaluable.
