Visions of Collecting: Royal and Aristocratic, An Important Private Collection

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 1 settembre 2019

London – On the 19 September, Christie’s will offer Visions of Collecting: Royal and Aristocratic, An Important Private Collection. Comprising 350 lots, this collection reflects a fascination with both Royal provenance – with objects from the British and other European Royal families – and Britain’s great country houses. The breadth of furniture, paintings, ceramics, sculpture, tapestries, silver, objects and works of art, lighting and soft furnishings, are united by their romantic and historic past, which have been skilfully and imaginatively woven into a kaleidoscopic vision, Royal and aristocratic, grand and exotic, ornamental and practical, to be enjoyed and treasured again. Leading the sale is Corso auf dem Monte Pincio, 1911 by Max Liebermann, which was owned by Paul Cassirer, the influential modern art dealer and publisher (estimate: £200,000-300,000). The Collection is expected to realise in excess of £2 million.Charles Cator, Deputy Chairman, Christie’s International: “There is always a vision behind any collection, a desire to create, to improve, to beautify. So it was with this intriguing and diverse group of works of art, assembled with an eclectic but immensely discerning eye over more than thirty years. If there is one theme that stands out, the leitmotif linking all these objects together, it is provenance. Where things come from, where they are going – these objects are on their journey just as we are. Their past life, who has owned and enjoyed them, the palaces and great houses they have adorned, is all part of their story and their appeal – the romance of objects.”
