April 2019 Monthly Auction

Congratulations to S. Klintworth who placed the winning bid of $1,250 for March's silent auction, a beautiful impressionistic seascape, "Port of Klaipeda", by Sergei Nikolaevich Vedeneyev, estimated at $3,500- $4,500.

As our April silent auction, we are pleased to present a beautiful impressionist floral still life, "Lilacs by the Window", by Kapitolina Alekseevna Rumyantseva, estimated at $6,000- $7,000.

Sergei Nikolaevich Vedeneyev, was an honored artist of the Russian Republic. He would often lead groups of artists to distant places around the Soviet Union to paint. Sergei Nikolaevich was always fascinated by what he called 'the dance of light.' and he often compared the differences in light from the places he traveled. For him the most striking was the difference between the crisp cold blue of the northern Murmansk sky to that of the deep, warm blue of a Tashkent morning sky in Central Asia.

Klaipeda is located in Lithuania and is one of the few ice-free ports in northernmost Europe. As was his custom, Sergei Nikolaevich woke before sunrise to paint plein air. Using vibrant, bold brush strokes and a rich color palette, Sergie Nikolaevich beautifully captures the the early morning light and serenity of the Northern Baltic seascape.
