This sale started out as a One Day event and has grown to Two Days! It is packed full and just keeps growing.
The highlight of this sale are the Robert Farrington Original Oils.
Listed California painter Robert Farrington was born in 1925 in Washington, DC, and trained at the Corcoran School of Art in 1946.
After serving in the Korean War, he moved to Venice, California to start his painting career. He became well known for his paintings of Venice and San Francisco, where he was an admirer of the “Beat” culture and lifestyle. His paintings were in the collections of many Hollywood celebrities including Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Johnny Carson and Carol Burnett. He died in 2011.
While Farrington is the highlight of the sale, this immaculate home is packed with lovely furniture, fantastic vintage record albums and over 500 books!
