The highlight was Emily Carr’s 1912 “The Totem of the Bear and the Moon”  that sold for over $3 million.

Also offered for public sale, Tom Thomson’s 1916 Petawawa Gorges.

Watch Art Specialist Rob Cowley start the bidding.

The final sale price for Thomson’s piece? $1.85 million.

Thursday night’s auction was the first of three landmark live auctions dedicated to the private collection.
