Today’s featured Auction piece is Lot 97: “Loggers” (c. 1940s), an oil painting by William L’Engle (1884-1957). The opening bid is $1,400–you can place an absentee bid today or bid live online on Saturday, September 23 at 7pm here: paam.liveauctioneers.com/catalog/300674_paam-2023-benefit-auction/

A former trustee of PAAM, L’Engle is known for his WPA-era social realism style. He was invited to exhibit a painting of similar social realism subject matter, “Cement Workers,” at the 1939 World’s Fair.

Our annual Benefit Auction of early Provincetown art highlights some of the most significant names, scenes, and themes throughout the history of the Provincetown Art Colony. As well as showcasing the incredible breadth of early Provincetown art, PAAM’s annual Benefit Auction is an important fundraiser for the museum.

Bidding happens online at Live Auctioneers. Absentee bidding is now open, and live online bidding is on Saturday, September 23 at 7pm.

We extend our greatest thanks to all those who continue to support and participate in our annual Benefit Auction by consigning and purchasing artwork.

All works are featured both in the online catalog and the preview exhibition at the Museum.
