New York, NY, July 27, 2018 — Every Western art lover’s attention will turn toward the same place on July 28th, as The Coeur d’Alene Art Auction holds their 33rd annual Fine Western & American Art auction from the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno. The catalog will include 315 selections of unparalleled quality, representing the most revered names the genre has to offer. Online bidding will only be available exclusively through Bidsquare (www.bidsquare.com).
Bidsquare, the exclusive online bidding platform for The Coeur d’Alene Art Auction for the fourth consecutive year, is prepared to get back in the saddle on auction day. After generating over $6 million in bids placed during the live sale in 2017, and totaling over $1 million in online sales, Bidsquare has become a reliable spur in boot heel of the most important event for collectors of Western art. Conveniently, the online buyers premium is the same as the floor bidders premium, an aspect that loosens the reigns and allows online buyers to bid without a moments hesitation.
Long known leaders at The Coeur d’Alene Art Auction, such as Howard Terpning, Alfred Jacob Miller, Frederic Remington, Eanger Irving Couse, Edgar Payne and William R. Leigh, amongst many others, will be accounted for during the sale.
Museum-quality paintings will cross the block, with one of the headliners being The Thirsty Trapper by Alfred Jacob Miller. Executed in 1850, the painting was in a long-time museum collection and appears at auction for the first time. Estimated at $1,500,000-2,500,000, it is sure to generate substantial institutional and private interest.
