Our upcoming European Art auction, including Orientalist Art in London features a curated range of works form the heart of 19th-century Europe. Highlights of Nordic art include a sensational work by Finnish artist Akseli Gallen-Kallela. A range of exemplary French Barbizon inspired plein-air works from Corot to Rousseau take the first steps on the path towards Impressionism. A selection of Dutch romantic paintings, sitting alongside Spanish depictions of the modern garden by artists such as Santiago Rusiñol, is also featured. There is a strong offering of Orientalist works, ranging from Jean Leon Gerome’s precise and delicate style, to topographically accurate renditions of Istanbul by Malta’s Count Amadeo Preziosi.
Explore the auction in person in our London galleries from 7-12 December 2019.
