The classic art and antiques auction at Campo & Campo on the 28th of May at 2 pm consists of a collection of fine art objects and paintings from the 19th century and older.
Among the old masters we find a beautiful 16th century tondo. On this round painting we see Christ descend into Limbo and free Adam and Eve. The burning fire in the background strongly reminds us of the hell scenes of Hieronymus Bosch. The work is most likely painted by an epigone of this painter of the Southern Netherlands in the sixteenth century. We cannot give the work an attribution, but there is no doubt that this is a very high quality imitation. In addition to this sublime sixteenth-century work, various portraits and landscapes by seventeenth-century masters will be up for auction.
Another eye-catching work in this sale is the stunning Art deco sculpture ‘Les amis de toujours’ by Demeter Chiparus (estimation 15000-25000 €).
Other art objects going on sale are a large collection of glassware, including different Gallé vases. Two Japanese folding screens from the 1800s go under the hammer, as well as a collection of Russian enamel and a series of antique music boxes.
Furthermore, many 19th century paintings including a canvas by Charles Boom representing a man in a museum in which many art lovers can recognize themselves.
You will also find a selection of furniture, some carpets and jewelry in this auction.
