Sotheby’s – Old Master and British Paintings Day Sale

October 14th, 2011 by

This December’s Old Master Paintings Day sale will include paintings from all major schools of European painting but it is particularly rich in those of Dutch origin.

A signed and 1652 dated flower still life by Jan van Kessel highlights the 17th century Flemish section, while a mesmerising example of Sassoferrato’s devotional depictions of the Virgin stands out amongst those of the Italian School.

The sale concludes with a strong and varied group of French and Italian view paintings.
