Lucas Cranach the Younger at Christie's

Video: Christie's

Here's a video from Christie's Old Master specialist Jonquil O'Reilly, about a pair of portraits coming up for sale in the New York sales next week, 25th January (est $3m-$5m). The portraits are of Christian I of Saxony, and his sister, Marie of Saxony, who holds the 16th Century equivalent of a Barbie. It's a great video; if it was up to me, all Christie's and Sotheby's Old Master videos would be like this. You can see why I once tried to persuade the BBC to put Jonquil on the telly.
