ARTWORK FEATURING THE ESTATE OF STANLEY VINCE

Buyer's Premium: 

17% (2% discount on cash or debit) and HST added to all purchases

A selection of Canadian and international artwork from the Stanley Vince estate of London, Ontario (Lots 9322 - 9353), highlighted by an important William St. Thomas Smith watercolour; together with Canadian, European and 19th century art from a prominent Stratford, Ontario residence.  Upcoming auctions from the Vince estate include collectibles featuring Supertest Petroleum items (where Stanley had a managerial career).  

Where the term "attributed" appears, Gardner's believe the work may be by the listed artist; where "after", "speculative", "style of", "school of" or "bears signature" appear, Gardner's believe the work is not by the listed artist.  Unless mentioned otherwise, measurements of the image are height by width, frame size not included.  A sincere effort has been made to mention any flaws but auctioneers still suggest taking advantage of viewing days.  Condition of frames not guaranteed.   

*Please note shipping of larger paintings (typically any work the frame size of which exceeds 81cm square or 32 x 32in) is not available through Canada Post.  Please contact our office prior to bidding for more information.

Viewing

At Gardner Galleries on Tuesday, January 21st from 10:00am to 4:00pm or by appointment.
