Neue Auctions’ next major sale after this one will be a Modern auction, also online-only, slated for Saturday, August 22nd, at 11 am Eastern time. Bidding will be on the same three platforms.
Headlining the sale is an artwork by Pop Art icon Roy Lichtenstein (American, 1923-1997).

The Modern auction will feature many other wonderful finds in the fine art category, to include works by artists like Viktor Schreckengost, Julian Stanczak and others. Cataloging is underway.
