A significant piece of Canadian history will be up for bids at the Heffel Fine Art Auction House’s fall sale Wednesday.
A 1931 Emily Carr painting called Cordova Drift is expected to command the digital showroom, estimated to draw between $2-million and $3-million.
In all, seven works by the British Columbia painter, who died in 1945, are on offer including the 1912 oil-on-board Maude Island Totem, which is expected to fetch between $700,000 and $900,000 and Music in the Trees, from 1935, which is estimated to be worth between $250,000 and $350,000.
There are also six works by Group of Seven artist Lawren Harris and an 1855 Canadiana canvas by Paul Kane called Assiniboine Hunting Buffalo, which could sell for more than $2-million.
