The sale made £3.7m, over the mid-estimate, and established six new artist records. There were strong results across the board, particularly for Venetian vedute including Canaletto’s Capriccio of a bridge leading to a fortress which achieved a quadruple-estimate price of £317,000. Dutch and Flemish 16th and 17th-century works performed well, a highlight of which was the delightful Portrait of a lady leafing through a book from the School of Antwerp, circa 1530-40, which was sold well above the high estimate for a price of £179,000.
This December’s day sale affords collectors the opportunity to acquire works from the 14th to the early 19th century, for prices ranging from £8,000 to over £100,000. The auction is led by a particularly fine selection of Flemish paintings from the early 17th century and a group of powerful works from the Italian baroque by the likes of Gioacchino Assereto and Pietro Paolini.
