This December’s Old Masters Evening sale includes a particularly exciting group of 17th century Dutch and Flemish paintings, including portraits, still lifes and landscapes. Highlighting the sale is a tender study of a young man by Rembrandt, painted in the circa 1650, which until earlier this year hung in the parlour at the Rembrandthuis in Amsterdam. The sale also includes one of Sir Anthony Van Dyck’s greatest late works: his portrait of the young Charles, Prince of Wales (the future King Charles II), in armour. It is accompanied by a portrait of his sister, Princess Mary and mother to the future king, William III, painted after her wedding in 1641 at the age of just eleven. Coming from the same collection these two portraits have not been seen on the market for nearly a hundred years.
