SAVANNAH, GA. — The top price realized in Everard Auctions’ two-day Spring Southern Estates Sessions June 1-2 was a painting of an Italian peasant boy cataloged as “after Camille Corot,” which soared from a $300/500 estimate to finish at $93,750. Done in oil on canvas measuring 18-1/8 by 21-1/8 inches in a giltwood frame, the painting depicted a boy laying in a field with hills in the background and was a copy of the original, which is at the National Gallery in Washington DC. After competitive bidding, it sold to an international buyer, bidding on the phone. Other highlights in the two-day sale of about 600 lots, included works from the Savannah estate of Murray C. Perlman. Prices quoted include the buyer’s premium as reported by the auction house. Watch for an extended review in a future sale.
