The James Prendergast Library: 9 Must-See Works of European Art

Launch Slideshow

This autumn, Sotheby’s is pleased to offer nine works from the Collection of the James Prendergast Library. The Library opened 1 December 1891 with a generous gift of $25,000 (more than $600,000 today) from the estate of Mary Prendergast, enabling the purchase of “oil paintings which possess merit as works of art.” Over a century later the library remains a vital resource, honouring its mission statement of “responsibly empowering lifelong learning of the residents of the city of Jamestown” New York and the surrounding communities. Click ahead to view a selection of these wonderful works, sold to benefit the endowment fund of the James Prendergast Library, before they go under the hammer on 21 November.
