Today, I received information from a colleague of mine in Vancouver, British Columbia, who is selling a work by deceased Canadian artist James Manning. The oil on wood board painting of a draped figure is being offered for sale by Levis Auction House in Calgary, Alberta. The painting, listed as Lot 315, is untitled.
Manning's unframed piece is 48.25 x 49.75 in. / 123 x 126 cm and is unsigned, though it does have a letter of authenticity attached on the verso. It is expected to catch a minimum of $4000(CAD).
