World record for Dale Nichols artwork

| May 24, 2017

A large-format oil on canvas painting by Dale Nichols (Am., 1904-1995), titled Mid-Nation Winter, sold for $120,000 – a new record price for the artist at auction – at a Fine Art Auction held May 4th by Shannon’s Fine Art Auctioneers, online and in the gallery at 354 Woodmont Road in Milford. The work dated to a key period in Nichols’ successful career.

The 30 inch by 40 inch painting, executed by Nichols in 1967, soared past its pre-sale estimate to finish in the six figures, shattering previous records. The work depicted a red barn in a bold and vivid snowy setting. It was in fabulous condition, which drove up the price. Nichols was a Nebraska-born Regionalist painter.
