Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 21 novembre 2022

London – See history in a new light this Classic Week at Christie’s London, with four live auctions and three online sales celebrating the breadth of human creativity from antiquities to modern classics. The series will run from 25 November to 15 December. Auction highlights will be on public view in Hong Kong (25 to 28 November) before the London pre-sale exhibition opens to the public on 2 December.This season’s highlights include Jean-François de Troy’s The Reading Party, one of the French Rococo painter’s finest tableaux de mode – loosely translated as ‘fashionable pictures’ – coming from The Collection of Lord and Lady Weinstock (estimate: £2,000,000-3,000,000); a portrait of Desiderius Erasmus by Hans Holbein the Younger and Workshop (estimate: £1,000,000-1,500,000); Anthony Van Dyck’s captivating portrait of Queen Henrietta Maria (estimate: £2,000,000-4,000,000); a majestic Roman marble Athena and the fourth part of ancient engraved gems formerly in the G. Sangiorgi Collection. The online sale of Old Master Paintings and Sculpture offers works of art at accessible price points, including some lots without reserves.Elsewhere, bibliophiles will find over 200 lots spanning printed books, maps, medieval manuscripts and autograph letters in our Valuable Books and Manuscripts auction, led by a beautiful copy of Gerard Mercator’s 1595 Atlas. The dedicated sale of The Collection of Marvin L. Colker is a fine tribute to the late Emeritus Professor of Classics at the University of Virginia. A host of fine British and European Art is presented across an online sale and a live auction, with works by Jean Béraud, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, John William Waterhouse and Sir Alfred James Munnings.
