Sale L20036

10 December 2020 | London | full auction details

This December’s Old Masters Evening Sale offers a strong selection of 17th-century Dutch and Flemish paintings, including three masterpieces by three titans of the Golden Age. David Teniers the Younger’s The Wine Harvest is one of the largest and finest works he ever painted and, from the collection of the Viscounts Gage, it comes to the market for the first time in well over 200 years, only a little longer than Jacob van Ruisdael’s moving, early masterpiece Landscape with a cottage and stone bridge under a cloudy sky which last appeared in 1840. Jan Steen’s wonderfully optimistic and finely executed The Dancing Couple completes the trio.

A wide selection of Italian paintings are also on offer, from the Renaissance to the late 18th century, amongst which is a Portrait of Thomas Orde by Pompeo Batoni that is “one of the artist’s finest and most sympathetic likeness of an Englishman”. British highlights include two beautifully preserved portraits by Hans Eworth and Sir Peter Lely, and the sale is completed by three of the Spanish Baroque’s biggest names: El Greco; Jusepe de Ribera; and Bartolomé Esteban Murillo.
