Van Ham Kunstauktionen in Cologne, Germany, are leading their June Fine Art sale with works by two female artists. This is another sign perhaps of the growing trend and appreciation for women artists at auction. The first picture is a Portrait of a Child by Sofonisba Anguissola (pictured), a work produced during the artist's first stay in Sicily in c.1573. The painting has received a blessing from the scholar Prof. Marco Tanzi and will carry an estimate of €35k - €45k. Secondly, the auction will also contain a Mary Magdalene by Artemisia Gentileschi, a picture given the thumbs up by Riccardo Lattuada, which will carry an estimate of €30k - €40k.

Both paintings will be offered for sale on 2nd June 2021.
