WEST COLUMBIA, S.C. — Charlton Hall’s Six Centuries At Auction event July 21 kicked off with a nice grouping of Judaica and moved into furniture and decorative items for about an hour before the star lot took the block, one of several fine paintings in the sale.
Lot 116, an oil on canvas painting by Guillaume Seignac, “Indolence,” went well over its $50/70,000 estimate, attaining a world auction record price of $252,000. The signed painting was bought circa 1950 in New York City by the father-in-law of the consignor, a South Carolina private collector.
A complete report on the auction will appear in a future edition. For more information, www.charltonhallauctions.com.
