Evening Sale of “Winter” by Nicolas Lancret at Sotheby’s
February 1–2, 2018 (Preview exhibition January 26)
New York, New York
Sotheby’s will soon auction a range of Old Master and 19th-century paintings and sculptures. At the evening sale, the highlight will be “Winter” from Nicolas Lancret’s “Four Seasons” cycle, a masterwork unlocated since 1889. “Winter” was commissioned from the artist by Jean-François Lériget de la Faye (1674–1731), Paris.
The day sale’s highlight also dates from the 18th century: Pierre-Antoine Demachy’s “Book Market Beneath the Louvre Galleries” (estimate $100,000–$150,000). Both auctions will include impressive British portraits and Dutch paintings.
