Born in Italy, Umberto Brunelleschi moved to Paris in 1900. He soon found work as an illustrator with Le Rire, a renowned French fashion magazine. He soon established himself as a painter, illustrator, and costume designer. One of Brunelleschi’s paintings will be offered in the upcoming Face Time: People in Art through the Ages Auction, presented by Christie’s. The piece shows a puppet and a mask beside the artist’s self-portrait.
Over 50 lots will be offered in this auction. Featured is an oil painting from Jacob Ferdinand Voet depicting a lady of the Colonna family in a dove-grey gown and pink silk wrap. Voet’s recurring subjects included women dressed in lace and French dresses. During the late 17th century, the Flemish portrait painter was acclaimed among aristocratic European society. The auction also offers an oil painting from Jean François Raffaëlli and a nude painting from André Lhote. Find these items and view the complete catalog on Christie’s.
