Bonhams' August 6 auction of California and Western Paintings & Sculpture has been highlighted by the sale of Guy Rose's Wind Swept Pines in Los Angeles.
The piece was expected to fare well as the cover lot of the auction, valued at $150,000-250,000. However, the vibrant oil on canvas work soared past expectations, making $374,500 - a 49.8% increase.
Also starring was Selden Connor Gile's Waggon Team and Barn, the largest of his works to be offered at auction since 2006, which made $110,500.
Frederic Remington's The Cheyenne, a bronze sculpture from the famous Western painter, sold for $80,500.
At this year's Coeur d'Alene Art Auction, a Remington work entitled Cutting Out Pony Herds sold for $5m to lead the sale.
