The auction of 19 pieces of equine artwork by the financially ailing New York Racing Association has been canceled after Sotheby's auction house withdrew the sale under threat of legal action by the state government.
New York's top racing regulator said court action is still being considered as a result of the New York Racing Association's plans to auction off 19 pieces of artwork without first getting state approval.
New York state is threatening legal action against the New York Racing Association and the auction house planning to sell NYRA artwork because it claims it hasn't signed off on the sale of the equine art collection.
Sotheby's will auction 44 paintings from the Greentree Foundation, which was created in 1982 by the late Mrs. John Hay Whitney following the death of her husband John Hay Whitney. The sale will include major works by Edouard Manet, Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Sir Alfred J. Munnings and John Singer Sargent.
