Last year I went to the Skinner auction of Richard Wright's collection and it was amazing. A doll auction is great for learning, kind of like a temporary museum set up before the family of dolls gets sent off to the next stage of their journeys. This reminds me of when you see seeds blowing in the wind, who knows where they will settle? The same thing happens to collections.
Nowadays auction companies often put the auctions online, which is great for those of us who don't have the opportunity to travel to them. But still, there is nothing like seeing something with your own eyes.
This week I am going to the Withington auction, and it will be fun to see some wonderful old creations in person. I'll be bringing my camera, and a notebook, and my thinking cap. :-)
