Before it was possible to easily manufacture reproductions of art, a copyist was often employed to make suitable replicas. One such artist was Remee van Leemput, who was known to duplicate works by Anthony Van Dyck, the 17th-century Flemish master. One painting that is likely from the hand of Leemput—a portrait of King Charles I wearing the Blue Garter Ribbon—is available in the upcoming Premier Auction from Brunk Auctions. The original is thought to be a pendant to the portrait of the queen, but its whereabouts are unknown.
Other artistic items in the sale include a complete set of 80 etchings, 78 of which are by Rembrandt, bound into a single book; paintings by Édouard Vuillard, Jean Dufy, and Lamar Dodd; and photographic portraits from China by Hedda Hammer. Beyond fine art there are inlaid snuff boxes and pieces of fine ceramics, antique furniture and rugs, Benjamin Franklin half-dollar sets, and more.
