The Consignor Canadian Fine Art Fall Live Auction of Important Canadian Art showcases prominent artworks by Canada’s celebrated historical, post-war and contemporary artists.

Bold compositions by postwar abstract artists, such as Jean-Paul Riopelle, Jean McEwen, Michael Snow, Jack Shadbolt, Gershon Iskowitz and others are also on offer. In addition, the auction includes the work of East Coast painters Alex Colville, Mary Pratt and Maud Lewis, among many other noteworthy artists from across the country.

The live auction will take place at Toronto’s Gardiner Museum on Thursday, November 23rd at 7:00 pm. Registration is available to place bids in person, in absentee, or by telephone. The Consignor Gallery is currently open for previewing of the artwork at 326 Dundas Street West (across the street from the Art Gallery of Ontario). Auction catalogues are available to order or download at www.consignor.ca.

Consignor Canadian Fine Art is a partnership between art auction veterans Rob Cowley, Lydia Abbott and Ryan Mayberry. Since its inception in 2013, Consignor’s live and online auctions have included exceptional works such as a rare Tom Thomson portrait (Daydreaming, sold for $172,500), an undiscovered William Kurelek (Ukrainian Proverb, sold for $41,400), and Jack Bush’s Summer Lake, which broke records in May 2014 for the most expensive painting by a Canadian artist to be sold at an online auction ($310,500). Consignor’s inaugural live auction of May 2016 set the record for the highest-selling Algoma sketch by Lawren Harris, fetching $977,500 and tripling the previous auction record. The rare Harris sketch was personally retrieved by the firm from a private collection in Australia.
