A Private Collection of American Contemporary Art
We are delighted to present a formidable private single-owner collection of American contemporary art in the upcoming Winter Quarterly Auction: fifty lots of paintings, prints, and sculptures by important artists whose work is housed in major museums around the world, including the Metropolitan Museum in New York City.

It dwells right here at home, too. A painting by Alex Katz (b. 1927)—the arresting, richly colored, cinematically dramatic, and indeed movie screen-sized (but intimately depicted) Six Women (1975)—hangs prominently in the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh, one of the jewels of the museum’s permanent collection.

This private collection also includes two local artists whose work will be familiar to our clients. We set a public sales record for work by Herb Jackson (b. 1945) in our September sale, and we are glad to feature four more Jackson pieces in the upcoming December auction. Veronica’s Veil XC (1987) represents the epitome of Jackson’s work, from his highest creative period. An eminent professor of art at Davidson College from 1969-2011, major paintings by Jackson are currently featured in the inaugural exhibition at the Gregg Museum of Art and Design at North Carolina State University.
