Cranston, RI, USA, January 12, 2024 — Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers will greet the New Year with a 438-lot Winter Fine & Decorative Art online-only auction featuring fine items from prominent area estates and collections. The event will be held on Monday, January 22nd, starting at 10 am Eastern time. Previews will be held by appointment only, at the Bruneau & Co. gallery in Cranston, R.I.

Expected top lots include a landscape painting by Bruce Crane (Conn./N.Y., 1857-1937); a rare circa 1880 Bark John & Winthrop carved whale’s tooth; a circa 1830 Chinese oil on canvas painting of the 13 Hongs of Canton; an early 20th century Pairpoint Puffy Papillion table lamp; a 1977 Philippines 5,000-Peso gold proof coin; and a Tavannes Hermes silver golfing belt watch.

“We have an interesting array of items in this auction, from a fresh gold and silver coin collection to a group of ladies’ 1940s platform heels, to 18th century samplers and 1960s modern mannequins,” said Kevin Bruneau, president of Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers and an auctioneer. He called the Bruce Crane painting “a fresh find” and “the perfect study, a misty fall morning.”

The Crane painting, an oil on canvas depicting an open field with a small stream surrounded by a forest covered in fog, is expected to bring $2,000-$3,000. “It will be interesting to see the result on this fine impressionist work, in this ever-changing art market,” Mr. Bruneau said. Crane studied at the Art Students League, and was influenced by the French Barbizon School in France.
