"Theshing Grain" by Dale Nichols,watercolor and gouache, 1946

Another warm day in NYC. I was getting cabin fever from avoiding the heat. I decided to check out the Swann Auction Gallery, which I've frequently seen advertised in the antiques newspapers. The address is 104 East 25th Street, a short distance from where we are staying.

The gallery is on the 5th & 6th floors of the building. There were a number of American works available, incuding a piece by Glackens ( which you can see on my Noonmark Face Book page) Ralph Blakelock, and the above painting, which was my favorite. I discovered later that apparently, this was a choice piece for Swann advertisers-they used it for their publicity post card.

The auction begins at 1:30 on June 15, 2017.
