Important Winter Sale 621

After a successful season, we have reached the Important Winter Sale, an auction that truly celebrates the best of the best. Bukowskis yet again presents a fantastic collection of paintings and sculptures, where Old Masters meet Pre-Raphaelites and Impressionists.

Bukowskis is proud to once again have the honour to offer several masterpieces from J.E. Safra Collection. This time including, among other lots, Carl Larsson’s outstanding ”Kurragömma” as well as two magnificent works by August Strindberg.

Equally outstanding: Carl Fredrik Hill’s ”The Tree and the River Bend”, is considered one of his most important works. Until know passed down within the the artist’s family, it has never been offered for sale since it was painted in 1877. Bukowskis is also pleased to present the recently rediscovered ”The Bee Hives” by Carl Larsson, which was hidden away in a private collection in the United States for almost 100 years.

Among the international highlights, should be mentioned the magnificent painting ”The Rescue” by British Pre-Raphaelite artist John William Waterhouse. ”The Rescue” has been untraced for many years while it hung in a private Swedish collection since the early 1960s. Also of interest is an extraordinary private collection of works by Canadian impressionist, William Blair Bruce.

In the department for old masters, we can present several magnificent top numbers. In particular, we would like to pay attention to Jacob Heinrich Elbfa’s interesting and early portraits of Anna Margareta Sture. The 17th-century’s most prominent painter of portraits, Alexander Roslin, is represented with two wonderful portraits. Also the sculpture ”Young moose” by Carl Milles is worth paying special attention to in a sculpture department with several unusual top numbers.

In the department of Works of Art, we are happy to present a desk that belonged to our national hero, Carl von Linné. Another of the auctions absolute highlights is an exquisite table by master Georg Haupt.

In the department of Asian Art and Works of Art we present items from several private collections. Highlights include a massive double peacock dinner service as well as a blue-and-white Ming Bowl from Emperor Jiajing’s reign. Well worth noting is also a magnificent Bodhisattva in bronze, made during the Ming Dynasty.

We can also present a lovely range of jewellery of different types and expressions from different eras in this auction, where designer jewellery, alongside classic beauties, will be up for sale.
