CRANSTON, R.I. - eTradeWire -- A mixed media modern painting by American artist Margo Hoff (1910-2008), titled Football – Yugoslavia, a fine example from her long and storied career, is an expected highlight in an Estate Fine Art & Antiques Auction planned for Thursday, August 27th, by Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers, live in the Cranston gallery and online, starting at 6 pm Eastern.

"This catalog is action packed with 344 lots, including some great artwork," said Travis Landry, a Bruneau & Co. auctioneer and the firm's Director of Pop Culture. "With female artists being a hot trend in modern and contemporary art at the moment, it will be interesting to see what the Margo Hoff sells for. The painting is pinpointed to a very specific time in her career. I love it."

The figurative painting, depicting a group of seven children playing football (or soccer) around a tree, was executed by Hoff in 1939, during a visit to Europe with her husband and fellow artist George Buehr (1905-1983). It measures 17 ¾ inches by 24 ¾ inches (less the frame) and is signed lower right and titled lower left. The painting carries an estimate of $4,000-$6,000.

Margo Hoff studied art at the National Academy of Art Chicago (1934-1935) and the Art Institute of Chicago (1936-1937), where she focused on capturing modern urbanism utilizing an earth tone color palette. She frequented Mexico and drew influence from Mexican Muralism and the work of Diego Rivera, Clemente Orozco and Rufino Tamayo.

For those planning on attending the auction in person, the gallery is located at 63 Fourth Avenue in Cranston. "It will be great to finally have an inhouse crowd again," said Bruneau & Co. president Kevin Bruneau. "Seating will be limited to 25 active bidders, but it still allows us to bring some of that excitement back. We do encourage phone and absentee bidding for safety."
