Consisting of two portfolios containing fifty offset lithographic color plates of Texas birds and landscapes painted by Fort Worth artists Scott and Stuart Gentling, with commentary by the twin artists preceding each plate.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
