THOMAS STUART’S ‘THREE DISGRACES’ REDEEMED FOR $4,750 AT GARTH’S
COLUMBUS, OHIO –
Garth’s September 7th country Americana auction was conducted at its new facility in the Municipal Light Plant with all forms of bidding available. Early in the 554-lot auction, an oil on canvas portrait of “The Steuart Children” by Thomas (Steuart) Stuart (American, mid-Nineteenth Century) was offered with a $600/900 estimate. Originally signed and dated 1849 verso, the three children, Edward, Margaret and Mary, dubbed the “Three Disgraces,” were painted by their uncle, and bidders pursued the 26-by-26-inch painting until it sold for $4,750.
