Vibrant and colorful paintings by acclaimed Nova Scotia artists Maud Lewis (1901-1970) and Joe Norris (1924-1996), and a spectacular 18th century Quebec armoire, 82 inches tall by 51 inches wide, are the expected headliners in two days of online-only auctions scheduled for February 10th and 11th by Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd., based in Canada. The Saturday, February 10th Canadiana auction features the Richardson, Blevins, Morawetz & Molson Foundation Collections and contains 329 lots of Canadiana, pottery, stoneware, textiles, art and Canadiana furniture. The February 11th Canadian Folk Art auction showcases works from the Maritime Provinces, Ontario and Quebec, and has 215 lots of folk art, art, Canadiana and decoys. “The Canadiana auction is a rare opportunity to acquire items from very prominent collections with varied focus,” said Ethan Miller of Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd. “All the collectors had discerning taste and knowledge of their pieces. This auction has a wonderful selection of hooked mats and marquetry boxes as well as a mix of 19th century Canadiana furniture and accessories.” He said of the Feb. 11 Canadian Folk Art auction, “What a mix, from 19th and 20th century Quebec Flat Plane carvings to a collection of birds by Yvon Cote to art from Maud Lewis, Joe Norris, Joe Sleep, Barbara Clark Fleming and Cyril Hirtle, to pieces from noted Nova Scotia and Quebec carvers like Charlie Tanner, Ian Fancy, Sid Howard, Chatigny and Alcide St. Germain.” While these are online-only auctions with no live gallery bidding, bidders can tune in to the live webcast both auction days, February 10th and 11th, to watch lots close in real time.
