It's soon going to be my favourite time of year - Old Master sales galore - and the London auction catalogues are now all online. Christie's have amassed good selection of big names this year: a £5m-£7m Jan Steen; a £1.5m-£2.5m Rubens sketch many of you might know from the Ashmolean, where it has been on loan; a small and unpublished (but undoubtedly right) head by Titian [above]; and a Canaletto of the Doge's Palace at £4m-£6m. Sotheby's highlights include two El Grecos, one of St Dominic at Prayer (£3m-£5m), and a Christ on the Cross with the same estimate.
