Auction Overview

What an exciting auction this is turning into! There are new pictures of the Emile Gruppe oil painting and it is titled on the reverse “Aspens in Fall”. In addition to the Gruppe oil we are excited to offer 3 Jim Leedy pots. If you are at all interested in the Kansas City art scene then you know about Jim Leedy and the Leedy-Voulkos art gallery. There is a documentary that premiered Friday, August 31 at the Screenland Theater about Jim’s life and career. There are also 100s of pages online devoted to his amazing career and work. Other highlites include some really cool mid-century furnishings ranging from a Jens Risom desk and return to some really swanky party room digs. More traditional furnishings include a wonderful Kittinger executive desk, Oriental accessories and more. A nice group of toys also adds to the interest level this week.
