Author Andrew Graham-Dixon takes us on a Gallery Tour of highlights from two important auctions, the Old Masters Evening Auction and The Personal Collection of the Late Sir Joseph Hotung, Part II, both happening on the evening of 7 December in London. The Old Masters Evening Auction includes property from the collection of Juan Manuel Grasset, led by an exceptional view of the Grand Canal, Venice, by Canaletto, dating to the 1730s, along with some of the finest still lifes and landscapes from the Golden Age of Dutch and Flemish Art, including an intimate bouquet by the great Jan Davidsz. de Heem.
For the Hotung Collection, Andrew Graham-Dixon explores a magnificent van Dyck and a Luis Meléndez still life from one of the greatest painters of still lifes of the eighteenth century. Please watch the livestream on 7 December for both auctions on sothebys.com.
