The Old Masters Day Sale totalled £3,229,625. Highlights included Sir Peter Paul Rubens and Workshop, Putti Holding Aloft Draperies which realised £245,000 and Circle of Robert Peake The Elder, A Portrait of Two Sisters which sold for £185,000.
This year’s July Old Master Day Sale includes excellent examples from most major schools of painting in western Europe, including devotional images of the early Italian Renaissance, 17th-century still lifes and genre scenes of the Dutch Golden Age, and elegant 18th-century English portraits. With estimates ranging from £10,000–100,000, and paintings spanning 500 years of European art and history we are excited to present a Day Sale that will appeal to both seasoned collectors and buyers new to Old Master Paintings.
