Arader Galleries Summer Auction Prices Realized

Arader Galleries' is thrilled to share the results of our successful Summer Auction this past Saturday, June 13, 2016. The 207 lot sale included a stunning offering of Audubon’s Birds and Quadrupeds, various examples of natural history works, a wonderful collection of fine paintings, maps, views, and rare books. The auction totaled $925,016.

The evening preceding the sale the second floor of 1016 Madison played host for a riveting lecture by Jean Bochnowski, the Director of the John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove. Jean's talk offered a detailed and captivating history of John James Audubon's impressive life, encapsulating both his successes and hardships. Patrons were urged to designate 20% of their hammer price to be donated to aid in the wonderful work that Jean and the staff at the Center at Mill Grove are doing to educate our youth about Audubon and his role in American history. They are currently building a beautiful addition to the center, a conservation center and museum, which will break ground this October.

Highlights of the Audubon section of the sale included the Male Turkey (Lot 19), Audubon's first plate in Bird's of America, which achieved $85,400. The Trumpeter Swan, Young (Lot 15) achieved a notable $24,400. In the Quads the standout item was the Common Deer (Lot 36), which sold for $14,640. 

Other highlights from the sale include August Lohr's stunning View of Mexico (Lot 106) selling for $8,125 and another western artist made waves with Thomas Moran's etching of Tower Falls (Lot 109) achieving $10,370. Of the offering of fine maps included in the sale the two standouts were the Covens & Mortier's edition of the seminal Mitchell Map of British and French Dominions...(Lot 117) selling for $14,640 and Fry & Jefferson's Map of Virginia (Lot 127) realizing $36,600.

Please lookout for our September 17th, 2016 Auction for a wonderful selection of works on paper including an amazing selection of works focused on Washington D.C and founding of our great nation. Enjoy your Summer!

Dear Mike and Kathy, 

Graham Arader has arranged to photograph the map collection you have donated in order to create a catalogue for you.

The catalogue itself will be a rich resource for the study of art and history at our school.  As our planning for the collection moves forward, I will keep you informed.

I would also like to have a plaque acknowledging your gift to the Dwight School Foundation.  Would you please let me know how you would like it to read?

I look forward to seeing you in New York.

Warm regards, 
Stephen Spahn

Chancellor – thanks for making time for us to visit on such short notice.  Graham and spoken highly of you and the Dwight School so I was glad to have the opportunity to meet you and see a portion of your NYC facilities.  Thanks for the offer of dinner which we will hold you to the next time we are in the City.  In the meantime, it sounds as if Willy has beat us to the offer for you to visit Birmingham.  It is lucky for he and his family that you indeed gave him a new roof for his home, for while it was snowing in the East it was pouring rain in Birmingham!

Thanks again for the hospitality, and we look forward to continuing to work with you and the referenced maps.  All the best.

Mike

Thank you for allowing Mike Mouron and his wife, Kathy, to visit the Dwight School today.  We are looking forward to seeing how you have inspired your students with my maps hanging in your school with signage.

Also wanted to let you know that the world's greatest Linnaean scientist will be speaking at 1016 Madison this Friday at 6 30 pm.  His lecture on the marger of art and science is the best art history lecture I have ever heard and it would be a great deal to me if you could get some of the Dwight teachers to attend.  What he says is what I want to put into the minds of students all over the world.

Thank you and see you soon.

Wramly

Graham
