DETROIT — On day three of a three-day auction at DuMouchelles, October 18-20, a charming oil and pencil on paper painting by American artist Maurice Brazil Prendergast (1858-1924) titled “Beach at Cape Ann” shows people promenading along the beach in Victorian garb. The circa 1907 to 1910, 10-3/8-by-13½-inch work on paper mounted on canvas sold for $179,800 on the last day, October 20. With a Detroit Institute of Arts Friends of Modern Art label on verso which titles the work as “Promenade,” the painting was exhibited at the Detroit Institute of Arts, 1969, and purchased by the consignor from Lawrence Fleischman, Detroit. A full review of the auction will appear in a future issue.
