Tableaux Dessins Sculptures 1300-1900, Session I 15 June 2021 • 3:00 PM CEST • Paris

T ableaux Dessins Sculptures 1300-1900 offers an extensive array of European art from the Middle Ages to the 19th century, including paintings, drawings, sculptures and works of art. At the core of the sale is a prestigious French collection, which includes an exceptional set of bronzes illustrating the famous Dieux et Déesses series, designed in 1652 by French sculptor Michel Anguier for the royal jeweller Montarsis. In the decades since they were acquired, several paintings from the collection have been newly attributed to important artists, namely an important pair of Natures mortes by Dutch painter Melchior d’Hondecoeter.

The auction features several works that have never appeared on the market before or that have been rediscovered in recent years, including a magnificent 16th-century Florentine School painting likely painted by Raffaello Botticini, and a portrait of Jacques Boyceau by Abraham De Vries, which has not been seen since the 17th century. It also includes unexpected works by Lecomte du Noüy and a very early work by the greatest master of the 19th century, Gustave Courbet.
