Masters Week
November & December | Paris & London
This autumn, Sotheby's will bring together two series of sales in London and Paris celebrating the very best of Old Masters. Headlining the series is our Old Masters & 19th Century Paintings Evening Auction in London, which is led by Rembrandt's The Adoration of the Kings, one of the artist’s rare 'history paintings', and a rediscovery. In Paris, our Master Sculpture sale will offer exceptional lots spanning from the Middle Ages to the 19th century including exciting rediscoveries by Claude Michel, known as Clodion, and Augustin Pajou.

In celebration of a newly rediscovered painting, The Adoration of the Kings, by the great Dutch master, Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669), this limited edition catalogue showcases the history of the painting through an art historical lens. Almost entirely unseen by scholars, let alone a wider public, since the 1950s when it first came to light, the complex monochromatic panel painting depicting The Adoration of the Kings was overlooked for many decades. Now, following an 18-month research programme conducted by Sotheby’s, it has been widely recognised as a work of great significance in Rembrandt’s early career.
