Kaja Veilleux, owner of Thomaston Place Auction Galleries in Thomaston, holds "Flute Player and Goat," a ceramic plaque by the Spanish painter and sculptor Pablo Picasso.
The painting is unsigned, but auctioneer Kaja Veilleux believes it was made by John Singer Sargent.
It's from the private collection of a woman who asked Veilleux, "Can you sell this?
• A half-dozen folk-art paintings by Sally Caldwell Fisher, whom Veilleux characterized as "the Grandma Moses of Maine art.
Thomaston Place owner and auctioneer Kaja Veilleux characterized the sale as the largest volume of contemporary Maine art in years, if ever. "We've been trying to promote living Maine artists for a long time, and this is our most ambitious effort to date," he said.
MBNA was acquired by Bank of America nine years ago, and Veilleux said Thomaston Place was contracted to sell the art that accompanied the sale. The Thomaston Place sale represents the MBNA collection and not Cawley's personal collection, Veilleux noted.
Veilleux estimated the auction would net between $2.5 million and $3.5 million. That range is an educated guess, he said, noting that there are always surprises on either end of the spectrum. There are no minimum reserves on the MBNA collection or most of the other paintings. "We have paintings that are worth $10,000, $15,000 or $20,000, but they may go for as little as $3,000 or $4,000," he said.
Veilleux expects most of the buzz on Sunday, because contemporary Maine art is hot these days. A lot of younger people are getting into the art market, he said, and they tend to be drawn to current work because it is generally more affordable, among other reasons.
For Veilleux, this weekend represents something of a marathon. He's the auctioneer and faces two very long days. He has nearly 1,400 lots to sell, and he expects big crowds. By midweek, more than 500 people had visited Thomaston Place to preview the sale and look at paintings.
