The star of stars in the sale of Old Master & British works on paper is the extraordinary Canaletto masterpiece The Coronation of the Doge on the Scala dei Giganti, without question the most important drawing by the artist to come to the market in a generation. A masterpiece of brilliant technique and witty observation, this perfectly preserved drawing is one of the grandest that Canaletto ever made. Other standout drawings include a splendid study of the figure of a river god, by Francesco Salviati and major, previously unrecorded drawings by two pioneering Dutch draughtsmen of the period around 1600, Jacques de Gheyn II and Joachim Wtewael. Along with strong French presence including Watteau and François Boucher, the British section of the sale includes ten watercolours by Turner, alongside drawings by Constable and other leading English artists.
