Norman Rockwell's "Shuffleton's Barbershop" listed in a Sotheby's estimates catalog .

Auction house Sotheby’s has released estimates for what 40 objects from the Berkshire Museum’s collection in Pittsfield, Massachusetts could fetch. 

Sotheby’s says the combined sale of 36 artworks could go for up to $68.6 million – more than the Berkshire Museum’s original appraisal of $50 million. 

Norman Rockwell’s “Shuffleton’s Barbershop” and “Shaftsbury Blacksmith Shop” could fetch up to $40 million alone.

The sale prices of two statues by Alexander Calder and two additional marble statues have not been estimated and no auction date has been set.

Art goes to auction in November, and will be sold over the next six months.
