Offered in the upcoming sale, presented by Sotheby’s, are 65 lots of European paintings, drawings, and sculptures. One highlighted item is a work executed by Guillaume Seignac. A French academic painter, Seignac was trained in both the academic style of the École des Beaux-Arts and the classical themes of the Renaissance. Specializing in subjects that reveal hidden meanings as well as mythological figures, his work idealizes female nudes based on Greek and Roman art. The available painting shows a woman, clothed in white, with a blond cherub leaning against her shoulders. Behind her is a landscape furnished with Greek urns and trees.
Other lots of interest include an oil painting by Martín Rico y Ortega, titled Gondolier On a Venetian Canal. In the early 1860s, Rico hiked through Switzerland, Brittany, and England in search of inspiration. The sketchbooks from his journey document his study of the varied landscapes and cultures he encountered. The available piece shows the gondolier rounding a corner with houses and chimneys on his right. Another available lot, titled Fleurs Pour Maman (Flowers for Mother) from Henry Jules Jean Geoffroy, shows two children admiring a small bouquet.
