Ray’s passing several years ago left Shirley in the possession of the entire collection of Paxson material and with Shirley’s passing in March of 2011, Michael Raunig of Raunig Art Enterprises has acquired the entire collection from the estate. We are currently cataloguing all of the material and will be marketing it over the coming weeks and months. Some highly important, never before seen paintings are in the collection. There are some very rare personal items that belonged toEdgar S. Paxson which are one of a kind and highly collectible. This is an extremely important and highly desirable collection of  rare objects of Montana history as well as within the historic western American art communities. If you are desirous of purchasing some of the material, please contact Michael Raunig. You can email me at: trdngpost@aol.com

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire some fresh, many never before seen and most one of a kind items that belonged to Edgar S. Paxson and his descendants Ray and Shirley Paxson!
