Christie’s is delighted to present its annual Topographical Pictures auction, dedicated to paintings by Western artists active in the Americas, Africa, Asia and Australasia during the ages of exploration and empire.
Strong results were achieved in recent sales for works by Rugendas, Taunay and Pallière who were active in South America, Cazabon and Brunias in the Caribbean, the Daniells in India, and Chinnery and the China Trade artists in the East.
