A Vision of Arcadia: An Important English Private Collection


This important English private collection follows in the tradition of the grand and great collections of the 19th century, bringing together this group that 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. 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. Including some seventy lots, this breathtaking collection will be offered across eight auctions at Sotheby’s London, including the dedicated Jubilee and Modern & Contemporary art evening sales.
