Swann Auctions: 19th & 20th Century Prints & Drawings

Swann Auctions will have their 19th & 20th Century Prints & Drawings on Tuesday, March 13th. This sale includes 570 lots of prints and drawings including some highlights they have featured here.

We hope you will consider taking advantage of the preview hours: Thu, Mar 8th, 10-6, Fri, Mar 9th, 10-6, Sat, Mar 10th, 12-5 and Mon, Mar 12th 10-6 so you can take a closer look as I did of the amazing charcoal drawing, New York Nocturne featured above.

Swann was incredibly gracious, removing the drawing from the wall, peeling back the cellophane and matt so I could view this large drawing directly. It is precisely this experience, the physical joy of our eyes, the subtlety of the medium, that is lost when viewing the image online or in print.

Get yourself in front of original art as often as possible. Auction houses are a great way to do this.
