SOME HIGHLIGHTS
Some of the highlights of the exhibition are a pair of recently re-discoverd gouaches by Jakob Philipp Hackert (1737-1807), which are signed and dated from his trip to Sweden, for full details on these wonderful pictures, click here. These pictures were known to have been commissioned by Chevalier Jean-Louis-Antoine Le Vaillany De Damery (1723-1803) and were both engraved, as part of a 'Cabinet grave' of Damery's collection of pictures. There are only four known other pictures with Swedish motifs.

There are also 18 views of southern Italy by the 19th Century Italian artist, Antonion Senape (active 1820-1849), these are all in a wonderful fresh condition and have been in a private collection for many years. There are views of Naples, Pozzuoli, Lake Avernus, Sorrento, Capri, Palazzo Reale at Caserta, the ancient Theatre at Taormina, Temple of ‘Giove Olimpio’ in Syracuse. These provide a fascinating insight into the Grand Tourist sites in Italy of the mid 19th Century.

Should you have any requests on these or other drawings listed on 'Master Drawings for Sale', please do not hesitate to contact me. Prices will be added to the site after the opening weekend, from Monday 23rd January.
