The Signature Fall Auction offers bidders a vetted selection of quality fine art, antique furniture, and fine jewelry.  American Fine Art offerings are led by an Indian ink and watercolor on paper by Diego Rivera (Mexican, 1886-1957), titled Mujer Cargando Ayate.  This work was originally purchased from Diego Rivera’s first art broker, Alberto Misrachi, in January of 1944 by Gimbel Brothers. This work is signed and dated at the lower right.

This auction features several works from highly celebrated and collectible North Carolina artists, such as an oil on canvas by Claude Howell (NC, 1915-1997) titled, Heading Shrimp. This large work is signed and dated at the lower right.   Other works of note include an oil on canvas by Maud Gatewood (NC, 1934-2004), titled, Breakers and an acrylic on canvas by Ivey Hayes (American, 1948-2012), titled, Mama’s Quilt
