Fall 2019: Old Master Drawings

 

At Auction November 5

Upcoming Highlights

   
 

This auction traces the development of draftsmanship over several centuries from late-Gothic, early-Renaissance works of the fifteenth century, to Baroque and Rococo drawings of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

A collection of nineteenth-century French works on paper from the estate of the esteemed New York art dealer Eric Carlson, who specialized in French academic and realist drawings, complements the offerings of earlier works. Highlights from the selection are works by renowned artists, from Agostino Carracci to Jean-Honoré Fragonard, among many other European masters.
