Sotheby's have announced that they will be offering an important large-scale work by David Teniers the Younger in their upcoming December Old Master Paintings sale in London.

As the auction house's press release explains:

Measuring 56  x 104 ins (142.4 x 264.1 cms), The Wine Harvest is the largest, and certainly the finest work by Teniers to come to market in living memory. Rivalled in scale only by two other masterpieces, both of which now reside in international  museums, the painting is presented  in a remarkable state of preservation, undoubtedly due to its unbroken  ownership having been passed by inheritance since being acquired,  probably in the 1770s, by Peniston Lamb, 1st Viscount Melbourne.

The work will be sold on 10th December 2020 carrying an estimate of £3m - £5m.
