M G Neely Auction specializes in fine art, antiques, mid century modern furnishings, and designer decor. We are always buying Palm Beach Gardens, Boca Raton, Palm Beach, Miami Beach, and Delray Beach estates.

Paintings are by far the most common item brought in to our gallery, primarily because it can be very hard to tell the difference between just a beautiful painting and valuable artwork. These two Antoine Blanchard oil paintings are an example of the latter.

Antoine Blanchard (1910-1988) was the pseudonym of French-born ‘School of Paris’ movement artist Marcel Masson. Under this name, Blanchard produced his immensely popular Parisian street scenes from the 1950’s. The pieces in our upcoming auction are classic examples of his work, a bustling sidewalk in 19th century Paris. Flower sellers, carriages, and pedestrians share wet streets, movement is conveyed well in his art.

The Arc de Triomphe is prominent in this scene painted from Avenue des Champs-Elysees, known as the most beautiful street in the world.
