The sale offers bidding with the online platform Liveauctioneers.com as well as in house, absentee and phone bidding. The nearly 450 lot sale combines several local estates and features several standouts in such diverse categories as Americana, abstract and surrealist art, traditional artworks, sculptures in bronze and marble, Chinese and Japanese artifacts, mid century and traditional furniture and scientific and musical instruments. As in most sales there are always a piece or two that should generate some excitement on the way to the block. In this sale a large highlighted drawing of the depiction of  "The Transfiguration" signed Gustav Dore and dated 1861 from an old Nyack estate and a small oil on artist board signed (Alfred) Sisley from the estate of Jim Donovan should both be potentially exciting. 
   A call to a home on the Croton Ossining border revealed that the house was designed by the renowned architect Ladislav L. Rado. Czech born Rado emigrated to the US and graduated from Harvard University in 1940 under the tutelage of Walter Gropius and was responsible with partner Antonin Raymond for many important commissions. Consignment from the house includes several Rado designed pieces of furniture, Knoll and Herman Miller vintage furniture, a pair of Poul Norreklit lounge chairs, a Robert Kulieke bust, a fine sculpture by Albert W. Wein and local and Japanese artwork. Other mid century art and decorative objects offered are works by Charles Schucker, two fine carved abstract wooden plaques by Vernon Smith, an oil by Jan Pamula, three large abstracts by William MacDonough, a pair of Morgan Colt style iron and leather benches, a fine Maguire bamboo set and several other pieces from the White Plains estate and Nyack estate of Jim Donovan. Other sculpture and art include a Richmond Barthe plaster bust, a Patrick Nagel patinated bronze "Carol" on pedestal and a marble bust of Henry Bacon's daughter 'Laura' by Evelyn Beatrice Longman, A Frank Cadogan Cowper portrait of 'Judith", and a Loughlin oil of a 'Brut' illustrate the diversity in the sale.
