NEW YORK CITY — A fresh-to-market American Impressionist oil on canvas painting from a Rhode Island Estate brought nearly a quarter of a million dollars at Keno Auctions winter sale. Richard Edward Miller’s “Woman at her Vanity with Earring” was in untouched condition and had been in the same family for more than a half of a century.
“The image depicted is fresh and vibrant with the light and color play that Richard Edward Miller was experimenting with during the second decade of the Twentieth Century,” said Leigh Keno. “The painting has all of the right things going for it. He was working in Giverny, France, from 1910 to 1915 and this is one of the best examples produced during that time. The spirited bidding among several phone bidders and final sale result of $245,000 is evidence of this.”
A complete review of the auction will follow in an upcoming edition.
