Christie’s To Offer Exemplary Works This May

    Christie’s to offer exemplary works of 19th Century European Art this May

    New York – Christie’s announces the sale of 19th Century European Art on May 23, which offers a strong selection of fresh to the market paintings, drawings, and sculpture by leading artists who reflect the extraordinary diversity of this pivotal period of art history. Painters of the Barbizon, French Realist and Orientalist schools are represented, as well as a strong selection of Belle Époque painters and important female artists. The tightly curated sale of 88 lots is primarily sourced from private collections with lots ranging in price from $7,000 to $1,200,000.

    A highlight of the sale is Joaquín Sorolla’s (Spanish, 1863-1923), Algarrobo (The Carob Tree) painted when the artist was visiting the Spanish village of Jávea, in eastern Spain (estimate: $700,000-1,000,000). The artist was entranced by the beauty of the area, and this work is a striking example of Sorolla’s ability to capture the effects of heat and light using an almost abstract pattern of light and texture. It is considered among the first true landscape paintings by the artist.
