Artcurial in Paris have uploaded the full online catalogue for their upcoming MAÎTRES ANCIENS & DU XIXe  SIÈCLE Tableaux, Dessins & Sculptures sale.

Amongst the many treasures found within is this rather extraordinary An Antique Sacrifice, known as The Sacrifice to the Minotaur by Jean-Honoré Fragonard. This very colourful and powerful work, which has everything you'd want in a mythological scene of this period I would think, has been in a private collection for over one hundred years. It carries an estimate of €4,000,000 - €6,000,000, but, I wonder if it will make more...

The auction will take place on 22nd November 2023.
