Sunday, Sept. 26, also with a 10 a.m. EDT start time, will feature one of the best art and estate sales Philip Weiss Auctions has ever had the privilege to offer. In addition to the pieces by Edith Kramer and the Fratelli statue, another star lot is certain to be an original oil on canvas painting by the renowned British portrait artist John Opie (1761-1807), titled Boy With Monkey.

Previews will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 22, from noon to 5 p.m.; on Thursday, Sept. 23, from noon to 8 p.m.; on Friday, Sept. 24, all day from noon until the end of the first session, for people who want to preview Saturday’s and Sunday’s lots; and Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 25-26, from 8:30 a.m. until the start of sale (10 a.m. both days).
