Kelly Crow has a rundown of the museums offering works in the Fall sales:
- The Cleveland Museum of Art is asking at least $5 million for Monet’s 1881 landscape, “Cornfield,” which depicts wildflowers and spindly trees against a wispy, blue sky. […] The Ohio museum received it as a gift in 1947.
- Washington’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden is also selling off Picasso’s 1967 portrait, “Musketeer With a Hat,” with an asking price of at least $3 million.
- The Virginia Museum of Art is also joining in the sell-off, offering up its Renoir still life from 1883-84, “Vase of Roses and Dahlias,” for at least $400,000. The museum received the painting as a gift in 1994.
