Christie's London have published their upcoming Old Masters Part I sale online. The sale will take place on 2nd July 2024.

Amongst the highlights are the aforementioned Longleat Titian (which already has a Third party guarantee), rediscovered Quentin Metsys, the large George Stubbs, and Viscount Cowdray's Frans Hals. The combined low estimate of these four lots alone is a respectable £34,000,000.

Some other interesting pictures up for sale are a Venetian picture by Bonington at £2.5m - £3.5m, an erotic scene by Jan Lievens at £1.5m - £2m, a gold ground Madonna and Child by the Master of the Monte Olivieto at £800k - £1.2m, and this rather smart portrait of Queen Elizabeth I attributed to George Gower at £300k - £500k.
