Another rare gem is an Eliseo Meifren painting of his garden in Majorca. The painting was originally shipped to the United States for the Pan-Pacific International Exhibition in 1915, where the artist was awarded a Medal of Honor. It was sold at The Anderson Galleries in New York City before the Spanish Commissioner returned home in 1919 and has since descended into a private collection. This fresh-to-the-market painting beautifully depicts the artist's colorful garden in a Spanish Impressionist style.

American paintings will be led by a large Antonio Jacobsen marine rendering of the U.S.M. Pennsylvania. Measuring 32 inches by 60 inches, the painting is an impressive composition. Other highlights in American art include paintings by New Englander Eric Sloane; Hudson River School paintings by Arthur Parton and Samuel L. Gerry; 19th century genre paintings by Hamilton Hamilton and Francis Coates Jones; Western art by Frank McCarthy and Carl Pugliese; and American Impressionism by Richard Hayley Lever, Emile Gruppe, Clarence Kerr Chatterton, Charles Warren Eaton and others.
