NEWTON, MASS. — An Impressionist river scene by Pierre Eugene Montezin (French, 1874–1946) was the top-grossing lot at $58,500, including premium, in the first sale conducted by Tremont Auctions, Boston’s newest auction gallery.
Montezin was the winner of many prestigious awards and prizes during his lifetime and his paintings can be found in major collections. Auction prices for the artist are generally less than what this example earned. The sale included early American silver by Paul Revere and others, a group of Audubon prints, a Childe Hassam etching, “The White Kimono,” a marble bust by Paul Manship, good American furniture, and several other paintings that did well.
A complete review will appear in an upcoming edition.
