Modern and contemporary paintings will lead the auction with a group of eight paintings by American artist Scott Kahn. Each painting, from a different period in the artist's career, shows off the artist's mastery for detail. Prices for the Kahn paintings range from $10,000-75,000. The star of the group, titled "Circular Driveway" depicts a dense tree lined driveway with the sunlight creating shadows on the ground. "Circular Driveway" is estimated at $50,000-75,000.

Celebrated New Haven artist, Winfred Rembert is well-represented with five works included in the sale. The highlight of these is titled "Family in the Cotton Field" and is estimated at $60,000-80,000. The Remberts were purchased by a New Haven high school principal, Dr. Lonnie Garris, Jr., who was a friend and early supporter of the artist.

Contemporary paintings by female artists will be prominently featured. A powerful image by Louise Fishman titled "Petroleum Window," from 1989 will be offered at $25,000-35,000; a colorful abstract painting Alice Baber titled "The Blue Bow of the Jaguar" from 1981 will be offered at $15,000-$25,000; and a 1930s abstract painting by Peter Miller titled "Singers" offered at $20,000-$30,000 lead this category.

Other highlighted artworks in the sale include "When Youth is Beautiful" by Norman Rockwell, an exquisite oil on canvas capturing the artist's signature charm and storytelling ability. Originally an illustration for a story of the same title published in the November 1933 issue of the Women's Home Companion. The Rockwell carries a $100,000-$150,000 estimate. It has been in a private collection for over 40 years.

A stellar winter scene by New England Impressionist Aldro Hibbard will be offered at $40,000-$60,000. The Vermont scene was purchased at Vose Galleries in 1925 and has been in a private collection since. This painting is an example of the works Hibbard completed during winters around Jamaica, Vermont. Painted with quick broad brushstrokes, the composition creates a multi-sensory experience that captures the tranquility and seclusion of the countryside during winter.

Frederick Carl Frieseke's elegant "Lady Trying on a Hat" is a masterpiece of American Impressionism. Exhibited at the Carnegie Institute in 1909 and at the National Academy of Design the same year, the work carries provenance extending all the way back to the artist. In 1906, Frieseke spent the summer in Giverny and the influence of French Impressionism is apparent in this work. Offered at $250,000-$350,000, Shannon's is delighted to offer buyers a rare opportunity to acquire a work of this quality by one of America's leading Impressionists.

As usual, Shannon's will offer a fine selection of 19th century American paintings including a Jasper Francis Cropsey "Sunset on the Lake with Figures" dated 1897 estimated at $60,000-$80,000 and a rare Thomas Cole "Mount Chocorua, White Mountains," from ca. 1827, estimated at $100,000-$150,000.
