28 January 2021 | New York | full auction details

This January’s marquee sale of Master Paintings and Sculpture is led by two masterpieces of art history: the magnificent Botticelli Portrait of a Youth Holding a Roundel and Rembrandt’s intimate painting of Abraham and the Angels. The sale includes a strong selection of 17th-century Dutch and Flemish paintings, including still lifes by Rachel Ruysch, Willem van Aelst, Ambrosius Bosschaert, and Willem Claesz. Heda as well as impressive portraits by Aert de Gelder and Sir Anthony van Dyck. 

An incredibly rare canvas of the Descent from the Cross by Hugo van der Goes leads the Renaissance section, which also includes works from the great early Italian painters Apollonio di Giovanni, Taddeo di Bartolo, and Sano di Pietro. The sale also includes a number of important paintings from the 18th and 19th centuries, including a pair of large landscapes by Hubert Robert, a charming painting by William Bouguereau, and a large-scale gold ground by Frederic, Lord Leighton. 

Following the guidelines for the Phase Four reopening of Manhattan, we are able to accommodate clients in our building by appointment only.
