Old Master Drawings: Drawings at Sotheby’s

On view at Sotheby’s New York January 26th – 30th. Click to view.

From Sotheby’s Website: “A large, rich and deep sale, spanning more than four centuries and a wide range of countries, this is a true celebration of the art of drawing, in all its forms.  There are early renaissance figure studies, projects for Baroque compositions, Rococo masterworks such as the exceptional, rare gouache landscape by François Boucher, and a good selection of 19th-century works – even a remarkable, insouciant early divisionist self-portrait of 1908 by the Italian futurist master, Gino Severini.  The early Italian drawings in the sale include a fascinating late 15th-century study of the Madonna lactans from the workshop of Bartolommeo Vivarini, a magnificent red chalk female nude by Guercino, and an outstanding, dynamic study of a river god, by Francesco Salivate.”
