    THOMAS MORAN (1837-1926) – A Passing Shower in the Yellowstone Cañyon. UPDATE: THIS MADE $1,740,000

    Stewards of the West: The Knobloch Collection, a dedicated live auction of Western American Art comes up at Christie’s in New York on May 18. The late entrepreneur and conservationist Carl W. Knobloch, Jr. built a striking private assemblage of Western American painting and sculpture that reflects his deep commitment to the region, while developing a reputation as a leading connoisseur and collector in the field. Off the walls of the family’s Wyoming residence, the collection is notable for its exceptional quality and features the leading artists of the genre such as Thomas Moran, Albert Bierstadt, Frederic Remington and Henry F. Farny, among others. Proceeds of the auction will benefit The Knobloch Family Foundation which is committed to grant making that ensures the conservation of natural ecosystems. With approximately 75 lots, the collection is expected to make in the region of $15 to $23 million.
