Three ARC Living Masters™ Included in Sotheby's American Painting Sale October 10

Published October 12, 2007

Unprecedented
Realist Auctions Coming to Sotheby's


Allan Banks, Stephen Gjertson, and Daniel Gerhartz have all been accepted into the very narrow club of living artists whose works are of sufficient market value and having a wide enough collector base to be sold into the auction "secondary" market.

It is always the auction market that drives the prices of art into the stratosphere, so this may prove to be a date to go down in history, when living, life affirming, humanist, classical, academically trained, realist artists (all ARC Living Masters) were permitted back into the auction market. When it comes to fine art that is headed to become an important part of art history, the secondary market is where that change happens.

The auction will be held at:

Sotheby's New York General Fine Art
1334 York Avenue at 72nd St
New York 10021

Tel: (212) 606-7000
Fax: (212) 606-7107

The Auction will be held in two sessions:

Session 2: Wed, 10 Oct 07, 2:00 PM
