February’s sales of Impressionist and Modern art in London feature masterpieces from the greatest artists of the late 19th and 20th century, led by Paul Cézanne’s exquisite landscape Vue sur L’Estaque et le Château d’If. Not seen on the market since 1936, when it was purchased by Samuel Courtauld, founder of London’s Courtauld Gallery and Institute of Art, it is a tour de force from the artist described by Picasso as ‘the father of us all’.

In addition, we are proud to be able to bring two further exceptional collections to auction: Reality & Surreality – A 20th Century Dialogue, featuring key works by Modigliani, Moore, Giacometti, Picasso and the most extensive group of paintings by Magritte to come to auction in recent years; and Figuration to Abstraction: Property from a Private European Collection, which includes highlights from Modern masters such as Chagall, Bonnard, Braque and Derain. The Art of the Surreal will also present a series of outstanding pictures by Miró drawn from the two collections, focussing on key pieces from the 1930s to the early 1950s.
