Sotheby's Presents Old Masters Evening Auction

London | 6th July

We are pleased to present our July Evening Sale of Old Master Paintings, which includes a particularly strong selection of works from the Dutch Golden Age, led by Willem Van de Velde the Younger's masterpiece, The Surrender of the Royal Prince during The Four Days' Battle, 11–14 June 1666 – a painting that has hung in the Rijksmuseum for the last decade. Presented alongside this are fine winter landscapes by Adam van Breen and Anthonie Verstraelen, a poetic Haarlem church interior by Pieter Saenredam and a view of the city by Gerrit Berckheyde, as well as one of Pieter Brueghel the Younger's most original compositions. The sale also includes fascinating Italian works, from a dramatic and high-quality Caravaggesque Crowning with Thorns, to an intriguing Christ once ascribed to Titian and Giorgione, and two of the best works by Venetian painter Jacopo Amigoni ever to come to market.
