Collectors pronounced interest in the antiquities and historically-rich items offered in the Bernheimer Collection, bringing the overall total for both auctions to £3.7 million(€5.3 million).
The Evening Sale of the great Bernheimer Collection is a curated selection of two centuries of Bernheimer history, encompassing Old Master paintings, 19th-century paintings, ancient sculpture and works of art, textiles and furniture. Since 1864, the Bernheimer name has been at the forefront of art dealing and collecting adapting themselves to the changing times and exploring new categories. This auction reveals the depth and quality of their possessions and is an amazing opportunity to share in that history.
Please note that this lot will be available for collection from our New Bond Street premises following the sale and not from Greenford Park, as stated in the printed catalogue.
