ROCKLAND, MASS. — For his March 18–19 auction, Will Henry put together a fine Americana sale. Leading the event was an oil on canvas of a family of quail by Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait, which brought more than three times over estimate, finishing at $62,400. In 1856, Nathaniel Currier used it for a large folio lithograph, calling it “The Cares of a Family” and it was later selected as one of the top 50 Currier & Ives prints. A large crowd was on hand at the sale and prices were generally strong.
A complete report on the auction will follow in an upcoming edition.
