The American Saddlebred Museum presents the highly anticipated Equine Art, Antique and Rare Book Auction on June 8 at 11 a.m. at the American Saddlebred Museum, located at 4083 Iron Works Parkway in Lexington on the grounds of the Kentucky Horse Park.

An auction preview will take place at the Museum from June 3-7, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., and on June 8 two hours before the auction. The preview and sale are free and open to the public.

“We are so pleased to have the Equine Art Auction this year,” Executive Director Jennifer Foster said. “The auction has an excellent variety of items from paintings to vintage advertising. This sale has something for every horse lover.”

The focus of the auction is particularly Saddlebred items, but coaching, Thoroughbred, Hackney and Morgan artwork are included. The auction draws and specializes in works by George Ford Morris, and includes examples of his work in pastel, oil, charcoal as well as lithographs.

In addition to Morris, other artists represented in the 2019 auction include W. S. Vanderbilt Allen, John Thomas Berry, Edwin Bogucki, Anne Crawford, Sally McClure Jackson, Maretta Kennedy, Henry Stull, and many other well-known equine artists.
