  • RE-DISCOVERED MEMLING AT SOTHEBY’S OLD MASTERS SALE IN JANUARY

    Newly discovered panel by Hans Memling estimated at $1 – 1.5 million. (Click on image to enlarge). UPDATE: THIS SOLD FOR $4,114,500.

    A recently discovered unrecorded Hans Memling devotional panel will feature at Sotheby’s sale of Important Old Master Paintings and Sculpture in New York on January 31. The sale will coincide with Old Masters Week. The panel, entitled Christ Blessing, is estimated at $1 – 1.5 million.

    It has been in the same New England collection for over 150 years. It was completely unknown to scholars and collectors alike before it was discovered earlier this year.
    After extensive research Sotheby’s and leading Memling experts have confirmed the panel to be by the Flemish master. Memling was one of the most influential and important artists working in Flanders in the late 15th century and was a leading painter of the Northern Renaissance. The panel, thought to have been executed between 1480 and 1485, will be on view in New York from January 25.

    UPDATE: THIS SOLD FOR $4,114,500.
