Richard Scrushy Collection Sells at Freeman’s Modern & Contemporary Art Auction


PHILADELPHIA, PA.- “Today’s auction was another success for Freeman’s with an auction total of $2,165,500,” Anne Henry, Vice President of Modern & Contemporary art at Freeman’s said, “We exceeded our expectations with tremendous prices achieved for the Richard Scrushy Collection, and many Philadelphia artists, especially Bo Bartlett.” The day was marked by many achievements, the first of which was the Richard Scrushy Collection, being sold to benefit HealthSouth shareholders. John Sommerville, attorney for the HealthSouth shareholders commented, “First and foremost, we are delighted with the results. When we received the art, the provenance and history had been removed, and there was a great deal of work that was done to authenticate it. We could not have achieved a fraction of the prices had it not been for Freeman’s authenticating the pieces and guiding us through the process.” Highlights from the Scrushy collect
