MONROE, CONN. — Julian Onderdonk’s oil on canvas “Morning Sunlight” well went over its $80/120,000 estimate on Sunday, May 17, at Fairfield Auction.
Coming out of a Fairfield, Conn., estate, the 1919 painting depicting milkweeds and oaks near Leon Springs, Texas, crossed the block about an hour into the sale.
Onderdonk returned to his native Texas, after studying with William Merritt Chase in New York, in 1909 and painted this work ten years later, about three years before he died.
A complete report on this auction will appear in an upcoming edition.
