A Vision of Arcadia: An Important English Private Collection

"A Vision of Arcadia" is the title given to some seventy lots from an important private English Collection which will be offered across eight auctions at Sotheby’s London, including the dedicated Jubilee and Modern & Contemporary art evening sales. The group includes a quintessential landscape of Monet’s hometown, one of the best Degas ballet dancers of its kind, a portrait of Millais’ daughter and a view of Tissot’s London garden, together with important Regency-era silver.

This important collection follows in the tradition of the grand and great collections of the 19th century, bringing together museum-quality works, from Victorian and Impressionist masters to exceptional English silver and wonderful furniture from across Europe and the golden age of cabinetmaking. Many of these pieces come with a fascinating provenance, their life associated with the great houses and families of England, historic figures, magnificent European collections and the revered gallerists of La Belle Epoch in Paris.
