The Sotheby's Old Master Paintings sale has been published. Bidding will take place online between 20th - 29th July 2020.

Top lots include a Pieta by Luis Morales estimated at £150k - £250k; a Saint Christopher by Cranach and workshop estimated at £60k - £80k; a Saint Philip by Van Dyck estimated at £120k - £180k; a curious French 1640s interior with artists estimated at £40k - £60k; a fine Reynolds of Lady Anne Dawson at £60k - £80k; a view of Vienna by Bellotto from the Emden collection estimated at £150k - £250k; and a Zuccarelli of the Thames from Richmond at £80k - £120k.

This Judgement of Paris by the Workshop of Rubens caused a stir last year when it made $45,000 over $2,000 - $5,000 last year in New York (where described as 'After Rubens'). Despite the work's extensive provenance having now come to light, the painting will be offered for £15k - £20k.

The high estimate lots will appear in the special 'Evening Sale' on 28th July.
