SOTHEBY'S SALES OF EUROPEAN ART AND MASTER PAINTINGS TOTAL 23.4 MILLION USD IN NEW YORK
23 May 2018
Category : MARKET


Sotheby's sales of European art and master paintings held on May 22 in New York yielded 23.4 million USD with six William Bouguereau's works totaling 4.6 million.

 

Bouguereau's 1884 canvas " La Bourrique" (The Pony-back ride) sold for 1.8 million USD to benefit the Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. Painted during the height of the artist's commercial success, the present work is a testament to Bouguereau's emotional and artistic intuition.


The afternoon auction of Master Paintings was led by a rare, intact, portable triptych dated to circa 1450-55 by Sienese artist Sano di Pietro, which sold for 1.6 million USD – more than 4.5 times its high estimate, and marking a new world auction record for the artist.This depiction of the Madonna and Christ Child, flanked by Saints John the Evangelist and Jerome, is a fine example of the Sienese Trecento tradition.

From the Berkshire Museum, Adriaen Isenbrant's 16th-century panel, The Flight Into Egypt, was also among the sale's top prices, fetching 759,000 USD – nearly four times its high estimate. Twenty-four Baroque still lifes from a private collection were 100% sold, together achieving 2.2 million USD, above a high estimate of $2 million. The group was led by Bartolomeo Cavarozzi's Basket of fruit on a stone ledge, which sold for 519,000 USD (estimate 200/300,000). Completed in the first quarter of the 17th century, the present work is both an important and evocative example of the first generation of Roman still life painting, and incorporates the lessons of Caravaggio's groundbreaking, realistic approach to the genre. 


A group of 13 works from the Jack and Eileen Feather Collection also went beyond  expectations, fetching 900,000 USD overall led by  Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo's Portrait of a Young Woman Dressed as a Page, Bust-Length painted in Spain between 1762 and 1770, which sold for 275,000 USD.
