Happy Mother's Day! And happy birthday to French artist Georges Braque! Renowned as a Fauvist/Cubist master, Braque worked somewhat in the shadow of his contemporary Pablo Picasso. In our recent Art & Design auction on April 8, we offered two Braque lithographs: Untitled (Bird) and 'L'oiseau et son nid' ('The bird and its nest').

Is summer early where you are, too? The heat continues unabated in the Midwest. We're baking like glazed ceramic in the California sun, in other words, like Stan Bitters' 'Sun People' sculpture. It'll be coming up soon in our Art & Design auction on Sunday, June 24 (once summer is officially here).

The first Sunday in May means it's time to get out in the garden (or bring the garden inside).

We're currently planting the seeds of the catalog, which will burst forth in the coming weeks.

Happy Derby Day! Albert Clark's oil on canvas, 'Horse in a Stable,' is quite a fitting visual given the occasion. Keep your binoculars trained on this lot when it comes up in our Art & Design auction on Sunday, June 24. For now, enjoy the race pageantry, dress to impress if you're attending a party, and go easy on those deceptively strong mint juleps.

We're feeling animated because this Tiffany Studios 'Grapevine' glove box (Lot 441) went for $6,875 in our recent Art & Design auction on Sunday, April 8. That's over two and half times the high estimate for an artfully crafted combination of patinated bronze and green Favrile slag glass.

Happy birthday to Joan Miró! Over the years, Toomey & Co. has auctioned several of the Spanish/Catalan artist's creations, including 'Le Permissionnaire,' a color etching with aquatint and carborundum from 1974 (i.e., the same year Miró and Josep Royo produced their memorable tapestry for the World Trade Center). In 'Le Permissionnaire,' Miró's iconoclastic Surrealism is on vibrant display and our bidders noticed (Sale 101 Lot 808; December 6, 2014). The estimate range was $25,000-35,000, but the etching sold for $42,700. Visit our website (link in bio) to view additional works by Miró that we've auctioned recently.
