The inaugural Sporting Art Auction will take place November 20, 2013, at 4 p.m. with doors opening at 11 a.m. The auction represents an inspired collaboration between Keeneland, the world’s largest Thoroughbred auction house, and Cross Gate Gallery, the country’s premier gallery of fine sporting art and contemporary British figurative painting.
The auction features 174 high-quality lots focusing on “sporting” paintings and sculpture by British and American artists and works by important American realist and impressionist painters. Artists represented range from Sir John Frederick Herring, Sir Alfred Munnings and Edward Troye to Franklin Voss, Peter Curling and André Pater. The auction also includes works by three generations of Wyeths — grandfather N.C., father Andrew,and son Jamie — and the renowned American painter Mary Cassatt.
