Pre-Order Now Your Betty Ring Catalogue from Sotheby's

We posted in July the breaking news that the Betty Ring Collection of American schoolgirl embroideries would take place during the sale of Important Americana scheduled for January 22 2012 by Sotheby's of New York. The exhibition for the sale will open to the public on January 14 and run through January 19. The printed, single owner catalogue will be available sometime after Christmas, with the online catalogue available soon thereafter. In the meantime, Wendy White was concerned that there would not be enough printed catalogues to go around to all those who would want one. She took the initiative (for which a medal is deserved, I believe) and contacted Nancy Druckman, Senior Vice President & Director, American Folk Art at Sotheby’s and suggested that they allow individuals to pre-order the catalogue before it goes to print to assure that there are enough. Sotheby’s for the first time has agreed to pre-order and is pleased to announce you can request a catalogue for this sale (8832) now. You can either call Sotheby’s on 212-606-7000 (USA) and ask for the Catalogue Sales Department or email to and you will be contacted by a representative who will take your order. Carol and Stephen Huber will author the catalogue from Betty Ring's notes. It is expected to cost around $40. Talking of notes - Betty's notes are to go to Winterthur Museum.
