Hopper’s Les Poilus circa 1915 surpassed its $15000-$20,000 pre-sale estimate as well, selling for $42,500. I’ve sold an impression of the Lonely House before but I’ve only scene Les Poilus in the Whitney collection.

Besides Edward Hopper, there were prints by artists with Gloucester connections (or topics of interest such as a 1680 engraving of a beached whale).

Sean Hurley Describes and Demonstrates The Etching Process He Uses In His Printmaking Process-
I’ve never heard of or seen anything like this type of painstaking process which will take over a month to finish.
One of the great things about the blog is that I get to meet people and ask questions that I’d never probably ever know the answers to…and then I get to share it all with you guys.

More with Sean In part II coming tomorrow

From Deb Clarke;

hey there!
  i went to the Cape Ann Historical Museum on saturday afternoon to find that my paintings are not currently on exhibit.  Peter Vincent’s paintings greet you at the entrance to the Maritime Collection.  and in the upstairs hall, the bright wonderful world of Clara Wainwright.  There is a quilt of the world that is in progress.  the instructions say:  pick up a needle and make a stitch.  i will go back to do so, and i want to look at some etchings that caught my attention, as well as, the new aquisitions (2 bernard chaet seascapes are worth another look).
