Christie's American Art Sale Results
|Edward Hopper's Blackwell's Island|
Christies didn't offer much in the way of American Western art, but a 18x14 inch oil titled The Evening Glow by Frank Tenney Johnson sold for $159,750 which exceeded the high estimate of $150,000 and A Field in Taos by Oscar Berninghaus sold for $207,750 which was just over the $200,000 low estimate. All these strong records at auction are a very good sign, as it continues to show that collectors aren't afraid to spend like they were a few years ago.
