This year, our Old Masters Paris department celebrates Classical Art with an eclectic group of paintings and sculptures from various distinguished European collections. Maîtres Anciens – Paintings and Sculptures highlights French, Flemish and Italian painters and sculptors such as The Master of The Female Half-Lenths, Jan Brueghel the Elder, Joos de Momper, Gianbattista Pittoni, Claude-Joseph Vernet, Jean-Antoine Houdon, and Alexandre-François Desportes, with a rare and exceptional painting, Still life with Ara, bas-relief, musical instruments and chocolatière.
Following this auction, Women in Art will offer a selection of artworks exclusively signed by leading women artists. This unconventional auction invites you to explore five centuries of art pieces including paintings, jewels, photographs, design, books and manuscripts, vintage couture, prints, drawings, and sculptures.
In our last upcoming auction, we lift the veil on a very special painting acquired by the collector Raymond Hekking in the 1950s. The Hekking Mona Lisa, an early seventeenth-century replica of the famous Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, will be offered in a dedicated online sale. This incredible artwork fascinated the media all around the globe at the time when its owner even questioned the authenticity of the Louvre’s original.
