Invitation to Consign: Old Master and 19th Century Paintings

Following the success of the Tableaux Anciens et du XIXème siècle sale on 21 June 2012 which realised €4,592,325, we are currently accepting consignments over €10,000 for our next sale on 15 April 2013.

The top lot of the last sale was Un marché au village by Jan Brueghel the Elder which realized €1,274,600 against a pre sale estimate of €300,000–500,000. And a lovely view of The Camposanto of Pisa by Adolphe-Antoine Perrot was sold for €139,000 (pre-sale estimate: €40,000-60,000 )

The 2013 Old Master and 19th Century Paintings sale, which will take place a few days after the Old Master Drawings sale and the Paris Salon du Dessin fair, will present a selection of paintings from the Italian, Northern and French schools with a particular emphasis on rediscovered masterpieces by French artists from the 17th and 18th centuries.

If you are interested in consigning to our April sale and would like to arrange an appointment with a specialist please do not hesitate to contact the department directly.
