This December’s Old Masters Evening sale includes a particularly exciting group of 17th century Dutch and Flemish paintings, including portraits, still lifes and landscapes. Highlighting the sale is a tender study of a young man by Rembrandt, painted circa 1650, which until earlier this year hung in the parlour at the Rembrandthuis in Amsterdam. The
sale also includes one of Sir Anthony Van Dyck’s greatest late works: his portrait of the young Charles, Prince of Wales (the future King Charles II), in armour and another of his sister Princess Mary. Further highlights include a rare view of Haarlem by Jacob van Ruisdael and one of Jan Brueghel the Elder’s earliest masterpieces painted in Rome. Click through to see the works going on display in New York from 12-20 October, and again from 21-28 October.
