The Coeur D’Alene Art Auction

The Illustrators at Auction

For every illustration that ever graced the cover of magazines like Harper’s, Field and Stream, Collier’s and The Saturday Evening Post, there is an original work of art in a collection or museum attesting to the veracity and story telling capacity of the artist. Here are just a few that will be sold at the rollicking, painting a minute, Coeur D’Alene Art Auction in Reno on 21 July 2012.
