The mid-season sale of Old Master paintings includes excellent examples from most major schools of Western European art. The sale also includes over 70 portrait miniatures from the celebrated collection of the late Dr Erika Pohl- Ströher. Dr Pohl-Ströher was the granddaughter of Franz and Marie Ströher, who founded German hair care and cosmetics giant Wella AG. Between 1978 and 2016, a period of nearly forty years, she passionately and discerningly collected portrait miniatures, slowly putting together one of the greatest collections ever formed. The works in this sale date from the 16th through to the 19th centuries, and includes exquisite examples from many of the most important national schools. With estimates ranging from a few thousand pounds to over £50,000, this is the perfect introduction to Old Masters for new buyers, and a superb opportunity for established buyers to expand their collections.
