In the Saleroom: Natalia Goncharova’s Espagnole

Description

Espagnole, circa 1916, by Natalia Goncharova realized £6,425,250 at Christie's 2 February Impressionist and Modern Evening Art Evening Sale in London, establishing a record price for a painting by a female artist sold at auction. A spectacular picture executed during the First World War, and an outstanding example from a series which saw Goncharova merge painting and theatre design, it was offered at the auction for the first time having been in the ownership of a private Swiss collector since the early 1980s.
