  • Description

    AT TOMORROW'S (FRIDAY) ART AUCTION AT CHRISTIE'S AUCTION GALLERIES IN LONDON 76 ITEMS INCLUDING IMPORTANT IMPRESSIONIST AND MODERN DRAWINGS, PAINTINGS AND SCULPTURES WILL BE OFFERED FOR SALE. SOME OF THE PAINTINGS MAY WELL FETCH RECORD PRICES.

    AMONG THE PAINTINGS FROM THE FAMOUS SWISS COLLECTION OF PROFESSOR DR WALTER HADORN OF BERN IS AN EARLY BONNARD, JEUNE FILLE ENFILANT UNE AIGULLE WHICH IS EXPECTED TO BRING AROUND GBP30,000. FROM THE SAME COLLECTION IS THE UTRILLO STREET SCENE LA RUE DU MONT - CENIS, WHICH MAY ALSO MAKE ABOUT GBP30,000. IT'S AN EXAMPLE OF HIS WHITE PERIOD WITH SOME UNUSUALLY FINE BRUSHWORK IN THE FACADE ON THE NEAR SIDE.

    THE MONET, MONT KLASAAS, IS ONE OF THE SERIES HE PAINTED OF THAT MOUNTAIN DURING HIS NORWEGIAN TRIP IN 1895, AND THE RENOIR PORTRAIT DU FILS D'ALFRED SISLEY PIERRE IS ALSO ONE OF MANY PORTRAITS OF HIS FRIEND;S FAMILY.

    THE COLOURS IN PAYSAGE DE BRABANT ARE DULL COMPARED TO VAN GOGH'S LATER WORK, BUT THEY ARE ALREADY BEGINNING TO LIGHTEN. IT WAS PAINTED IN 1885 JUST BEFORE HE MOVED TO PARIS.
