Interesting news via. Twitter (from @Claudia05086940) that an Old Master Drawing depicting the History of Adam and Eve ascribed to 'German School 17th Century' sold for €82,200 over an estimate of 600-800 earlier today. The online only sale was held by the French auction house Aguttes.

Any suggestions for a possible attribution? We might assume that the buyer is hoping it to be the work of an early sixteenth century German Master.

It is quite something that such high prices can be achieved during such a period of crisis. But, such is the inestimable attraction of securing a sleeper.
