We are busy here at Cottone Auctions! We have gathered many great antiques for our upcoming auction–many of them being paintings. Our auction is set to be towards the end February–dates to be announced soon!

Among the fantastic paintings, we have various paintings from the American painter & visionary artist, Charles Ephraim Burchfield (April 9, 1893 – January 10, 1967). Burchfield is well known for his passionate watercolors of nature scenes and townscapes. The largest collection of Burchfield’s paintings, archives and journals are in the collection of the Burchfield Penney Art Center in Buffalo, New York. His paintings are in the collections of many major museums in the USA and have been the subject of exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Hammer Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art, as well as other prominent institutions.

This fabulous Charles Burchfield watercolor, “Dreaming of Christmas”, will be featured in our Upcoming Spring 2015 Auction. It is estimated at $75,000-$100,000.
