SUCCESS FOR THE COLLECTION OF PRINCE MARC DE BEAUVAU-CRAON IN PARIS
06 October 2017
Category : MARKET

The success of the sale of the spectacular collection of Prince Marc de Beauvau-Craon soldby Sotheby's  in September 2017 in Paris bore witness to the history of this dynasty. It was a tribute to this great patron of the arts: husband to Laure, Président-directeur général of Sotheby's Paris from 1991 to 2003.

 

The highest price of the sale went to an imposing bronze of Louis XIV on horseback after a model by Etienne Le Hongre (1628-1690), standing on a magnificent ebony and gilt bronze base from the Louis XIV period. Bidding was competitive, and drove the results to €87,500. The portrait of Grace King Connelly, Prince Marc de Beauvau-Craon's grandmother, painted by Giovanni Boldini, made twice its high estimate at €75,000. Lastly, a fine pair of candelabra, after models by Falconet, from the end of the Louis XVI period (late 18th/early 19th century), fetched €47,500.


This splendid collection, assembled over several decades and displayed in an elegant apartment on the Rive Gauche was characterized by many refined works. This included a pair of Louis XVI gilt-bronze wall-lights with young fauns, which garnered the highest price of the sale: €331,500 .Further highlights included numerous mounted porcelains, such as a pair of gilt-bronze Chinese celadon longevity peaches, which at €85,000 doubled its high estimate and a large gilt-bronze mounted Chinese blue powder porcelain, which sold for €162,500

 

The collection also included a fine group of delicately shaded watercolours by Carmontelle, consisting of portraits and panoramic landscapes. The 14 lots for sale all found buyers, making a total of €441,000. The two most sought-after were a portrait of Madame de Lacombe jouant au trou-madame avec son fils, which sold for €81,250 and a self-portrait of the artist, which achieved €75,000. A portrait of the painter Jean-Baptiste Isabey by Joseph Chinard sold for 23,750 euros against an estimate tagged between 4,000 and 6000 and Isabey's portrait of Empress Josephine in Malmaison went for 37,500 euros against a 3000-5000 estimate.
