Online sale – Margaret Wenstrup’s art and personal property


Everything But The House is proud to represent the personal property sale of listed Cincinnati artist and modernist pioneer Margaret Newland Wenstrup (1930-2008). Margaret Wenstrup grew up in a small town inKentucky, and the lack of art classes within the local school system led her to seek training elsewhere. She studied weaving in Arizona, took art courses in Indianapolis, and in 1949 Margaret enrolled at the Art Academy of Cincinnati. In 1953, she was the first woman to win the Academy’s prestigious Wilder Scholarship

Margaret Wenstrup was also an enthusiastic collector of folk art and found inspiration in the work of artists such as the Kinney’s, Howard Finster and many, many others. Margaret is perhaps best known for her modern abstract design, which is evident in the example of her artwork which was selected as a mural to be painted onto the side of the Reinermann Building at the corner of Fourth and Central in Downtown Cincinnati in 1971.

Everything But The House ( is excited to represent this icon of Cincinnati art and is proud to offer for sale the contents of Margaret’s New Richmond home, including dozens of examples of Margaret’s original artwork such as paintings, drawings, sculpture, serigraphs and etchings. Margaret collected folk art by Hazel Kinney, Carl Mackenzie, and many others.

    not a trusted auction house. Please beware when purchasing from them.

    I've dealt with EBTH on a number of occassions. They are not your conventional auction house (probably a good thing). They have always been friendly and items have been accurately represented and well packaged for shipment. You have to do some searching to get through their auctions as they offer the complete contents of the estate (good and bad). However, they seem to truly care about their clients (buyers and sellers).

    I have been buying from this company since its inception, and find their integrity and customer service of the highest standard. No less than 500 transactions, and never a problem!

    Thanks EBTH!
