SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. — The Taos artist Walter Ufer (1876–1936) is finding his “place in the sun” these days, starring in a traveling exhibition of the same name organized by the Denver Art Museum and headlining Scottsdale Art Auction’s April 2 sale of Western paintings and sculpture.
Ufer’s 20-by-25-inch oil “Trailing Homewards” was Scottsdale’s high lot, earning $613,000 against its $500/700,000 estimate. “It had been in a single family collection since it was painted,” said auction house partner Michael Frost. In all, the auction realized $8,663,277 on 318 lots.
