Hundreds of riveted readers | Patricia and Donald Oresman renowned art collection selling at Doyle’s Auction 11/20/18

I’ve been an arts adviser, curator and gallerist  for more than three decades. Patricia and Donald Oresman were clients and friends– curious, erudite, generous and kind. The Doyle auction on Tuesday November 20, 2018 features 567 works from their renowned collection. Have some fun viewing – they loved to share it– here’s a link to the complete catalogue on line: https://doyle.com/sites/default/files/pdf/catalogue/2018-11-15/18OR01-catalogue_0.pdf

photos of the Oresman collection illustrated in the Doyle auction catalogue (for Cape Ann locals- there is one work inspired by Gloucester, and some artists with connection here, e.g. Louis Lozowick, John and a Helen Farr Sloan, and a couple of works by Sally Avery, etc.)

 

Throwback photos at the Oresman library. I suppose a more accurate photo of Donald would show him sporting his favorite hat. He took it off when he met my kids 🙂
