NEW WINDSOR, N.Y. — The top price of $2,813 in Mid-Hudson Auction Galleries’ American & European Painting, The Old West & Antiques sale on July 9 was shared by two landscapes that evoked the mood of the summer season. The first of them to cross the block was Mabel Woodward’s “At the Beach,” a signed oil on board (shown) that measured 15¾ by 11¾ inches and had been estimated at $2/3,000. It sold to an in-state buyer bidding online. Thirteen lots later, “California Landscape” by Arthur Frank Mathews (1860-1945) achieved the same price. Measuring 13 by 16 inches in its original oak frame, a buyer in California, also bidding online, took the oil on board well beyond its $800-$1,200 estimate. Both landscapes were sold by the same seller and both prices include the buyer’s premium. Watch for a more extensive auction review in a future issue.
