Sotheby’s is honored to present a collection of 55 works from the legendary Old Masters dealer, Richard L. Feigen. A collector since his childhood, Richard became a dealer in 1957 and eventually had locations in Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles. His early love of German Expressionist painting is represented here by an extraordinary portrait and an important landscape by Max Beckmann. Richard’s lifelong mission to champion underappreciated and undervalued art led him to focus on Old Masters, especially early Italian works and 18th-19th century British landscapes. Beautiful examples from this first category include a small panel by Lorenzo Monaco, a Domenico Beccafumi with an interesting attribution history, and an intimate Alessandro Allori work on copper. His collection included no fewer than eight works by the tragically short-lived Richard Parkes Bonington, and among our highlights are oil paintings of Venice and Lerici in near-perfect condition. Also on offer are works at a range of price points by Italian and Northern Baroque artists, British portraiture, and French Romantic artists.
