Carol Vogel reports on the arrival of part of the George Embiricos estate upon the market through Sotheby’s where 11 works estimated around $30 million will be sold:
For sale on Nov. 5 will be Cézanne’s “Femme à L’Hermine, d’Après le Greco,” from 1885-86, which depicts a woman in a fur shawl that was inspired by a 16th-century painting by El Greco. It is estimated to sell for $5 million to $7 million.
Embiricos also owned several paintings by Francis Bacon, and Sotheby’s is selling “Study for Head of Isabel Rawsthorne” on Nov. 13. The 1967 canvas, which is thought to sell for $9 million to $12 million, was last at auction at Sotheby’s in London in 1983.
