We are delighted to announce our forthcoming sale of Victorian, Pre-Raphaelite & British Impressionist Art in London on 12 July 2018. We will offer paintings, drawings and watercolours by a wide selection of artists, including examples of not only the Pre-Raphaelites but also Classical Revival and British Impressionist works.
Among the highlights of the sale is John William Waterhouse’s The Siren of 1901, an achingly beautiful depiction ofyouth and romance. With his modern interpretation ofclassical myths and English poetry andfascination with emotional drama, Waterhouse’s work remains perennially popular. The Siren was last seen publicly in 2008 when it was included in the Royal Academy’s blockbuster Waterhouse exhibition.
If you would like to organise a time to view pictures prior to the presale exhibition, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the department.
