NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle's auction on October 30, 2019 presented Old Master paintings and drawings showcasing a wide range of landscapes, still lifes, portraits and religious subjects by European artists from the Renaissance to the 19th century.
Italian Mannerist Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1526-1593) is best known for his fantastical portraits composed of fruits, flowers, vegetables and more, which delighted his patrons, the Holy Roman Emperors, and still enchant us today. The taste for these imaginative portraits continued beyond Arcimboldo’s death, as evidenced by a 17th century series of allegorical portraits emblematic of the four seasons that sold for $50,000 -- the top end of its $30,000-50,000 estimate.
All prices include the Buyer's Premium.
Russian Works of Art / English & Continental Furniture, Silver & Decorative Arts
