Arader Galleries Auction Success and Prices Realized - January 28th, 2017 Winter Auction

Dear Friends,

We are delighted to announce that our first auction of 2017 was a resounding success. Held on the afternoon of Saturday January 28th, the auction featured 284 works by artists and cartographers from the 16th through the 20th centuries. The sale achieved $906,954.50 all in. 

Barney Lipscomb, the Leonhardt Chair of Texas Botany at the BRIT (Botanical Research Institute Texas), renowned for his award-winning and unusual approach to bringing the science of botanical taxonomy to the non-scientist 'performed' his lecture Art and Science: A Botanist's Eye: Redouté and the Art of Floral Illustration, to a full and enthusiastic house at Arader Galleries, at our 1016 Madison Avenue location in NYC on Friday evening. He presented a very lively look at the history and evolution of art and botanical science from the first century AD through the life of Pierre-Joseph Redouté, one of the greatest botanical illustrators and flower painters of all time.

Lipscomb's inspirational lecture was followed by a sumptuous dinner generously hosted by Mr. Arader at the famous Knickerbocker Club on 62nd Street, where he honored Professor Lipscomb for his pioneering efforts which bring the art of natural history into the classrooms of America: a cause very close to Mr. Arader's own heart. In attendance were a number of other generous donors and representatives from some of the esteemed universities we are happy to benefit. 

The auction highlights included works from John James Audubon's Birds of America, with Lot 8 the Long-billed Curlew selling for $73,200, Lot 11 the Summer or Wood Duck selling for $79,300 and Lot 12 the Fish Hawk or Osprey selling for $109,800. The star of Audubon's Quadruped section was the Nine-banded Armadillo which reached a price of $6,710. 

Next was a grouping of western lots which included a well rendered view of a small Nevada mining town by George H. Goddard which sold for $2,196, as well as a Thomas Moran Chromolithograph of the Grand Canyon seen from Arizona for $3,660, and finally a Aquatint Engraving by Karl Bodmer of Fort McKenzie selling for a total of $6,710.

Highlights of the map section included an early view of Yale by William Lyon which sold for $4,687, a Jeffery's Map of Lake Champlain which went for $1,830, A map of the Beaufort District, SC by Vignole and Ravenel, and finally an early world map based of Ptolemy by Petrus Apianus which achieved a price of $2,196.

Other notable highlights were a Thomas Rowlandson Watercolor of Yorkshire which after fervent bidding in the saleroom and on the phone sold for $5,490. To round out the sale was a grouping of literature books, with J. R. R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings selling for $2,375. 

Arader Galleries next auction will be on March 25th following Asia Week in New York and we hope you will be in attendance. Also if you are in the Miami, Florida area please stop by the Miami Map Fair from February 3rd through the 5th, Arader Galleries will be in attendance with a great selection of maps from around the world! 

Truly,

Graham Arader
