251-282.  American paintings.  A broad selection modestly reserved.

The complete catalogue is posted at Guernsey’s, on the Arader Galleries websites and on the Americana Exchange.  An exhibition of the material on offer will be held daily at the Arader Galleries, 1016 Madison Avenue, in New York beginning on November 1st and continuing until the hammer begins to fall on December 5th.

As a side note the financial mechanics of the sale are interesting.  For collectors, and institutions 10% of the hammer prices will be contributed or refunded.   For dealers 10% will be deducted from the hammer price.  For specially designated institutions that agree to use their purchases in exhibits and as part of efforts to raise interest in collecting additional terms are available.

Extended payments are open for discussion.
