Hughie Lee-Smith Painting Sells High At DuMouchelles

From Antiques and The Arts Weekly – DETROIT, MICH. — DuMouchelles’ February 25 sale featured 436 lots from notable estates in metro Detroit and across the continental United States. The sale was led by a recently uncovered work from Michigan artist Hughie Lee-Smith (1915-1999). The untitled (Man in Red Shirt at the Shore) oil on linen canvas piece was inherited from the consignor’s grandmother, measured 18 by 24 inches and was signed “Lee-Smith” lower right. It sold for $89,900, more than twice its high estimate. Lee-Smith was an American artist and teacher whose surreal paintings often featured distant figures under vast skies and desolate urban settings. For information, 313-963- 6255 or www.dumoart.com.
