This lot has no reserve.
On occasion, Christie’s has a direct financial interest in lots consigned for sale. This interest may include guaranteeing a minimum price to the consignor which is secured solely by consigned property. This is such a lot.
The attribution of the present painting has changed to 'Circle of Stefano Danedi (Treviglio 1608-1689 Milan)'. An autograph version of the present composition was sold in our premises in London on 25 April 2001, lot 136, for US$15,000.
