Shannon’s Fine Art Auctioneers will kick off the spring auction season with a sale of paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures on Thursday, April 29th, at 6 pm Eastern time. The 200-plus artworks include American art, modern and contemporary art, sculptures, Hudson River School paintings and various offerings by female artists in various categories. Leading the sale is a painting by Willard Leroy Metcalf titled The Road that Leads to Home (est. $150,000-$250,000). The classic Connecticut Impressionist view of the Litchfield hills depicts a farmhouse that still stands in Woodbury. Metcalf’s renowned depictions of sunlight and shadow are evident in this rural, idyllic scene of country life. A rare figural work by Metcalf, titled In the Garden, will also be offered in the sale. It has a reasonable pre-sale estimate of $15,000-$25,000. To view the full catalog, condition reports and to bid live online, visit www.shannons.com.
