We are excited to offer pieces from Big Bend, the period home and farm of George “Frolic” Weymouth in our upcoming July 14th special auction. Frolic was passionate about art, both as the founder of the Brandywine River Museum and as an artist himself. Our pick of the week is Lot 79, Frolic’s personal easel made by Winsor & Newton, the esteemed British manufacturer of quality artist supplies. The company was established as a partnership between an artist and a scientist, and since 1832 have been pioneers of the highest standards in art materials, including the first screw cap mechanism for collapsible metal tubes, and Queen Victoria’s favored Series 7 kolinsky sable water color brush. Lot 79 is estimated at $300 – $500.
