In today’s post, you will see some well known equestrian artists , some of them in fact I featured on my blog on past posts- including Sir Alfred Munnings, Alexa King and John Skeaping ! I hope you all enjoy seeing some fantastic art work made by great artists that was nicely put together by The Sporting Art Auction. This is only their second year and they seem to be doing well! Enjoy~
With demand for fine sporting art confirmed, Keeneland and Cross Gate Gallery has conducted the second annual Sporting Art Auction on Nov. 19, 2014. This auction featured 175 high-quality lots representing fine sporting art, American paintings and sculpture from renowned artists.
The Sporting Art Auction represents an inspired collaboration between Keeneland, the world’s premier Thoroughbred auction house and Cross Gate Gallery, the country’s leading source for fine sporting art and contemporary British figurative painting.
Keeneland offers the perfect venue in its state-of-the-art Sales Pavilion as well as its auctioneering expertise. Keeneland Vice President of Sales Walt Robertson lends his experience as a knowledgeable sporting art collector and auctioneer.
Greg Ladd, owner of Cross Gate Gallery and the collection’s curator, traveled throughout the United States and Europe to acquire important pieces for the auction.
The 2014 collection was on display in the Keeneland Sales Pavilion beginning with the September Yearling Sale (Sept. 8-21) and continued through the auction’s Nov. 19 date~
See you all Tuesday~
