Newly Discovered Mural Sketches at Auction!

Today we received a postcard from Dirk Soulis Auctions in Lone Jack, Missouri. We've been to their great auctions in the past and they helped lead us to our Harzfeld's display cabinet.

The postcard announces their Winter Fine Arts Auction, which features eleven sketches for the Thomas Hart Benton mural commissioned by Harzfeld's in 1946, Achelous & Hercules! According to the auction site, the sketches are from the estate of our late friend and fashion illustrator for Harzfeld's, Patricia George.

Details on the December 4 auction can be found here. The sketches can be seen in lots 88 through 99 in the online auction catalog.
