A 19th century painting of a a Bacchanalian feast, painted by noted Belgian artist Henri-Jules Corneille Groux may command $9,000 at an auction to be offered by John Moran Auctioneers, July 28.
It was a case of 'saving the best for last' during Nadeau Gallery's spring auction, which saw a set of six 19th century Chinese porcelain famille rose panels finished at $57,600; making the grouping the top lot of the spring auction.
Auctionata entered the realm of fine art auctions June 21 with just 100 lots, but it finished the sale with many pieces surpassing presale estimates, and a history-making sale of the well-known painting, "The Reclining Woman."
European paintings brought the auction much success and helped it generate $272,448 in gross sales. The top lot was "The Adoration of the Magi," an After Sir Peter Paul Rubens oil on canvas, which sold for $6,875.
