AMERICANA, OLD MASTERS, MORE IN JANUARY
January means two things to the New York art market, aside from cold weather, that is. The first is "Americana Week," and the second is the round of Old Masters auctions at Sotheby’s and Christie’s. Plus, the month also includes a big sale of American Indian art. Some highlights:

* American Indian art comes on the block at Christie’s New York in a two-part sale on Jan. 12, 2006. The sale of "Important American Indian Art from a Private Western Collection," beginning at 10 a.m., features over 200 lots -- baskets, pottery, weavings, beadwork and kachina dolls, including a ca. 1860 Navajo man’s wearing blanket estimated at $75,000-$95,000.
