Frank Duveneck painting exceeds antiques valuation

It had an antiques valuation of between $10,000 and $15,000.


A painting by Frank Duveneck has exceeded its antiques valuation to sell for $42,300 (£26,208), it has been revealed.

According to the Examiner, the piece - entitled Portrait of a Young Girl - had a pre-sale estimate of between $10,000 and $15,000.

It was sold at Cowan's along with a number of other items at the Winter Fine & Decorative Art auction, such as a portfolio of ten silkscreen prints, which were created in 1971.

What's more, a Rock wood pottery vessel - which was made in 1882 by Artus Van Briggle, who was known for rediscovering Chinese glaze and fire techniques - went under the hammer at the event.

This comes after a painting of Moroccan daily life by Jacques Majorelle was given an antiques valuation of up to €120,000.

The piece - which was created in 1917 - is set to go up for auction at Sotheby's in Paris on March 30th.
