Renaissance painter Raphael was a master artist known for his self-portraits and paintings of mythological characters. His popular Madonna Della Sedia painting, executed between 1513 and 1514, is a round portrait of Mary holding a baby Christ with young John the Baptist watching them devoutly. The upcoming sale, offered by Leland Little Auctions, presents a 20th-century adaptation of the Madonna Della Sedia after Raphael. A contemporary decorative painting of a spaniel by John Gray and a vintage harbor scene by seascape artist M. Powell are other notable lots.
The auction also showcases items from the 19th century. Highlights include a set of 18 volumes of Current History and Modern Culture from 1902 and a midwestern photography archive of the Sergeant and Baker families. Several Persian rugs, including Hamadan, Kashan, Kilim, and Senneh carpets, are also featured. A selection of Staffordshire porcelain, bronze sculptures, Cannondale bicycles, and French rifles round out the catalog. Interested collectors can explore the full listings and register to bid online on Leland Little Auctions.
