On the evening of 2 May, guests enjoyed an elegant cocktail reception, gallery talk and private viewing of J.M.W. Turner’s 1835 masterwork Ehrenbreitstein at Sotheby’s Los Angeles. Hosted by Sotheby’s Old Master specialists Alex Bell, Christopher Apostle and Julian Gascoigne, the evening presented a rare opportunity to see the picture, which is widely regarded as Turner’s most significant German scene and is the centerpiece of Sotheby’s upcoming Old Masters Evening Sale in London.
