During the 20th century, the Gillies family of Collingwood amassed a collection of fine art from some of Canada’s most revered artists. This Thanksgiving weekend (2019), you have a rare opportunity to purchase 19th and 20th century paintings and water colours during this exceptional three-day estate sale at the family’s Collingwood home. This may be the sale of a century, as most of this sought-after art has not been on the market for 50 to 100 years. It’s certainly our biggest event of the year, and we’re honoured to have been chosen to handle the sale of these fine pieces.
