Celebrity auctioneer Jason Brooks returns to put the artwork through its paces. Jason, whose resume includes stints on the Discovery Channels “Auction Kings” and “The Rachel Ray Show,” was a big hit at last year’s sale, and news of his return has been met with all round approval.

Lot 179 - an untitled work by American abstract expressionist Norman Bluhm. Bluhms work has always drawn critical acclaim, with Art in America editor Raphael Rubinstein predicting that his work would be as important to the 21st century as Cézanne’s later output was to the 20th.

Lot 71 - Maynard Dixons "Bright Morning" is expected to many to top the sale. Created in 1944, the work depicts Dianas Throne Mt. Carmel, Utah, where Dixons studio and residence was at the time.
