This sale of 19th Century European Art will be led by two utterly different strands of European symbolism. Vilhelm Hammershøi’s celebrated interiors of his home in Copenhagen, such as the portrait of his wife Ida (estimate: £500,000-700,000), have their roots in 17th century Dutch painting, but are profoundly modern paintings. Gustave Moreau’s Hélène Glorifiée, by contrast, draws on a subject from Greek mythology to conflate into a single ravishing image the artist’s eclectic ideas on womanhood and the feminine ideal (estimate:£300,000-500,000, illustrated above). The sale is further highlighted by works from the Orientalist, Barbizon and Belle Époque movements.
