LOUIS DE NIVERVILLE, R.C.A.
A LONG DAY AT THE BEACH, 1996
mixed media collage on panel; signed and dated ’96
32 in x 40 in; 81.3 cm x 101.6 cm
Estimate: $800-$1,200

Overview
After many years of thoughtful acquisition and collection management by a global hospitality company, Waddington’s was selected as the preferred provider of auction services when it came time to downsize the corporate art collection due to a re-planned footprint of physical office space. Waddington’s is honoured to offer this exceptional collection of Canadian art.

This auction is a celebration of the urban and natural Canadian landscape, carefully assembled to demonstrate an array of styles, executed in print, watercolour, oils and acrylics. While predominately featuring western Canadian artists like Takao Tanabe, Joane Cardinal-Schubert, William Lewy Leroy Stevenson, and John Hall, the auction also includes works by Louis de Niverville, Chris Temple, Michael Smith, and Bruno Côté.
