Sporting Art Auction Million-Dollar Paintings

Sir Alfred James Munnings, P.R.A., R.W.S. 1878-1959 A Boy and His Pony, Portrait of Daffern Seal on Canary, oil on canvas.

Portrait of William Bolton Aspinall by Thomas Weaver.

May 7 Sotheby's London will stage an auction of important Sporting Art.
The top-priced piece of the sale is Munnings' "A Boy And His Pony - Portrait of Daffern Seal on Canary" painted in 1926. With an estimate of $3 - $5 million, it's one of the highest-priced equestrian portraits ever; however, it's worth noting that in 2004 Sotheby's sold a Munnings entitled "The Red Prince Mare," which had formerly belonged to Mr. and Mrs. John Hay Whitney, for $7.8 million, almost $2 million over estimate.
