Christie's New York have uploaded their upcoming Old Masters sale online. The sale will be held on 22nd April 2021.

Perhaps one of the most exciting lots is the recently rediscovered The Vision of Saint Anthony the Abbot by Sebastiano del Piombo (pictured). The work has reappeared in an English collection, where it has been since the nineteenth century. Another version of the work survives in Musée National du Château de Compiègne, although it has been suggested that the Christie's picture might well be the primary version. The painting carries an estimate of $3m - $5m.

Other interesting lots include a Landscape by Dosso Dossi commissioned by Alfonso I d’Este, Duke of Ferrara, estimated at $400k - £600k, a Still Life of a Mallard by Chardin estimated at $1.5m - $2.5m, a Dirck van Baburen scene of Christ driving out the money changers at the temple estimated at $1m - $1.5m, Ressurection by Lucas Cranach I estimated at $800k - $1.2m, a late thirteenth century Roman painting of Scenes from the life of Christ estimated at $1.5m - $2.5m, and a ricordo of Saint Francis Embracing Christ on the Cross by Murillo estimated at $1.2m - $1.8m.
