A few members of the art press have been pointing out a rare painted angel by Bernhard Strigel (1460–1528) that is coming up for sale in early February. The work dated to c.1520, rediscovered by Eric Turquin, relates to another angel by Strigel purchased by the Louvre Abu Dhabi at auction in 2008 for €1.1m. It is believed the panel might have been part of an altarpiece that was dismantled during the Reformation.

The work will be sold at the auction house Artpaugée, Paris,  on 4th February 2022 carrying an estimate of €600k - €800k. No prizes for guessing where it might end up...
