|Ada Shulz Painting|
Very seldom do you see a William Merritt Chase (1849 to 1916) painting come up for auction in Indianapolis, In., but this was one of those rare occasions. William, born in Nineveh, Indiana became a highly recognized impressionist painter and teacher of his time. The portrait of a woman measured 23 x 19 and was signed in the upper left of the painting, reaching a final bid of $15,000.
Another artist that is rarely seen at auction is Frederick Ebbeson Grue who died at the age of 44 in 1994. Grue was a self-taught artist and moved to Indiana in 1983. He was well known for his still life's reminiscent of the Flemish masters. Offered for auction was an 8.5 x 11 oil on board landscape signed lower right '87 that went to the final bidder for $14,000.

Gustave Baumann (1881 to 1971) began his career in early 1900 in Nashville, later moving to Santa Fe, New Mexico to produce some of his best work. The well-known woodblock artist will have a dedicated gallery once the Brown County Art Gallery in Nashville Indiana completes their "Expanding the Legend" fund drive to start the expansion of the gallery. A nice representation of his work was offered to bidders with a final sale price of $6,000.
