NORTH CLARENDON, VT. — A number of bronzes by American sculptor Patrick Villiers Farrow (1942-2009) were the top draw for bidders at Popular Pioneer’s August 9 sale, with about eight on offer, including jewelry and small sculptures but it was Farrow’s bronze dog, “Leash,” which proved to be “Best In Show,” bringing $9,500 from a private collector with residences in both Vermont and Florida. Farrow, the son of actress Maureen O’Sullivan and sister of Mia Farrow, had been a friend of the collector who was selling them. Popular Pioneer’s owner, Mike Bishop, said many of the bronzes were purchased by local buyers.
A more extensive sale recap will follow in a future issue.
