This commentary by Marion Maneker is available to AMMpro subscribers. (The first month of AMMpro is free and subscribers are welcome to sign up for the first month and cancel before they are billed.)The painting of Lucretia by Artemisia Gentileschi offered at Dorotheum today with a €500,000-700,000 estimate was sold for €1.885 million. The winning bidder was in the room but the work is headed to a collection in Australia. This follows the acquisition of a self portrait by London’s National Gallery for £3.6m. That work had sold at Drouot for €2.3m almost a year ago. Also doing well at Dorotheum was a newly discovered Anthony van Dyck, Portrait of a Noble Woman with a Parrot that made €1.425m (above, right).
