A flurry of activity and enthusiastic bidding was seen at Jackson’s International auction of November 27th, which featured an offering of both modern and vintage masters.

The sale opened with a collection of modern masters, deaccessioned from a private collection. The star of the auction was lot 3, the Keith Haring carved and painted headless figure with engraved surface that sold for over half a million dollars, coming in at $537,500. That was followed by a Keith Haring sumi ink rendering of an iconic Ghetto Blaster. The 38 inch x 50 inch original work dated April 28, 1984 attracted 20 phone bidders and finished at $343,000 against a presale estimate of $70,000-$90,000.

The Notman Art Collection at Auction

June 12, 2017 09:24 AM by James | 0 Comments

In this modern age of digitalization, in which everyone has instant online access to old books, publications, inventories, sales records articles galore on nearly every artist and Pinterest posts dedicated to about every subject, it might be hard to imagine that there still existed somewhere out there a heretofore unknown important collection of art. Yet such is precisely the case of the Notman art collection whose works have inconspicuously remained together in the same family for three generations never having been published or publicly displayed since they were first acquired well over a century ago and which have been consigned to sell at Jackson’s International Auctioneers in Cedar Falls, Iowa on June 27th.


The offered collection, which consists of a total of 55 works, features paintings by some of the most prominent American artists such as noted early modernists Marsden Hartley (American 1877-1943), John Marin (1870-1953), Hudson River painter Samuel Colman (1832-1920) as well as others, and each having been acquired directly from the artist or through a gallery representing the artist.

Whether you are dealing with the estate of a loved one, a collection that you spent years painstakingly building, or even just an item you have come across and want to sell, an auction is an exciting platform to choose.


Recently, I was working with a client who had several different auction houses vying for his collection and simply posed the question: “How do I choose who to use?”


We told the client all of things he should look for in an auction house, and ultimately, he decided to sell his collection with us. Since the list was helpful in this client’s decision making process, we thought it may be interesting for the rest of our clients as well. As such, Jackson’s International has compiled a checklist for you to go through when considering different auction houses.
