Master paintings are to be put up for auction at Sotheby’s in New York on February 1, 2018. The evening sale includes rare and exciting masterpieces from the 14th to the 19th centuries.  A large painting in gold and yellow by the rare trecento (14th century Italian) artist Agnolo Gaddi, an early depiction of Lucretia, the legendary heroine of ancient Rome by Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472-1553), and a pair of exquisite still life paintings  by the pioneering female artist Fede Galizia (1578-1630) are among the many notable early works in the sale. Italian painter Titian’s masterful, large-scale St Margaret and the Dragon and a captivating portrait by Spanish painter Diego Velazquez (1599-1660) in collaboration with Italian Pietro Martire Neri (1601-1661) are also major highlights, according to the auction’s website Sothebys.com. The 17th century section of the sale includes a grand, stunning landscape by Dutch painters Jan Wijnants (1632-1684) and Adrian van de Velde (1636-1672), a rare work by Italian artist Bartolomeo Manfredi (1582-1622) and the rediscovered painting of ‘Roman Charity’ from Dutch painter Willem Drost’s brief Italian period.  A pair of Venetian scenes by Italian painter Canaletto (1697-1768), a painting of winter by French artist Nicolas Lancret (1690-1743), a rare painting of Venice by Scottish painter David Roberts (1796-1864) and a large-scale composition by French rococo painter Lagrenée (1725-1805) lead the 18th century section.
