The Day Sale on November 3rd presents a wide array of rare works from the Impressionist and Modern periods. The sale includes carefully selected works from distinguished private collections many of which have not been seen on the market in decades.
Claude Monet's unparalleled dominance within Impressionism and influence on later Modernists is boldly portrayed in two works to be offered in the Day Sale. Les Patineurs à Giverny, from the Collection of Harry and Yvonne Lenart, presents dynamic winter light in the artist's most beloved setting while Étretat, Falaise d'Aval is a testament to the artist's ability with pastel and unprecedented use of abstraction (lots 334 & 134). Works by another master of Impressionism, Edgar Degas, present a similar mastery between the powerful Blanchisseuses souffrant des dents and an eloquent pastel, Femme s'essuyant après le bain (lots 142 & 135). The pointillism of the Neo-Impressionists finds brilliant expression in Paul Signac's La Chenal de la Rochelle, offered from a Distinguished New York Collection (lot 162).
