Art and much much more!

World Record Price for Corinthia by Jean-Leon Gerome at Sotheby’s

After Old Master Paintings & Drawings, Sotheby’s sale of 19th Century Paintings & Drawings brought a total of €2,482,425 from 147 lots. Sculpture specialist Ulrike Goetz was “very happy that a masterpiece by one of the most talented artists of the 19th century should find a place of honour in the Musée d’Orsay. Corinthia was Gérôme’s last work, done at the end of his life, and this was the only version of the subject completed during his lifetime.”
