When Christies, Sothebys and Bonhams have their semi-annual sales of Impressionist paintings, you never know what you’ll see! This is your chance to see the paintings up for sale. Most of them are from private collections and may not have been seen in public for a long time. Likewise, when the hammer falls on the auction block next week, most of these paintings will go back into private collections. We can only hope that the new owners will graciously share them for future exhibitions.
SEE THEM FOR YOURSELF!
Organize your own exhibition around the seven Pissarro oil paintings on view this weekend — all of them outstanding. Save the most time for Sotheby’s—they have five paintings on view: Lots 35, 39, 42, 44 and 58; Christies is offering one painting, Lot 44, and Bonhams has one spectacular painting Lot 23. All seven are shown in this blog.
AND THERE’S A SPECIAL BONUS ON SUNDAY AT BONHAMS!
