Male portrait by Rembrandt sold at auction Aguttes €450,2 thousand

Painting with an estimate of €12 thousand — €15 thousand was the top-лотом auction of old masters Maîtres Anciens: Tableaux et Dessins French auction house

According to to the auction house in social networks, this impressive result, almost 40 times surpassed the figure start, was achieved in a protracted struggle between the two parties — from the Netherlands and from the United States. The work became the most expensive lots of the auction on 18 June and brought a large part of the total revenue, which amounted to just over €640 thousand.

In the top three auction sales of old masters with the "Man in a beret" was included in the study, the seated lady Studio work Peter-Пауля Rubens, exposed with an estimate of €25 thousand — €30 thousand and sold for €29.9 thousand, and another work of the Studio of Rembrandt — "Portrait of a Rabbi", pushed for €19.5 thousand (estimate €15 thousand — €20 thousand). This increased interest in portraits, Studio, circle, and possibly the Rembrandt is not accidental.

it is Expected that one of the self-portraits of an artist, put up for auction of old masters at Sotheby's July 28, 2020, may become the most expensive work in the segment of the old masters, sold this summer. "Self-portrait" dates from the year 1632 — artist for 26 years and he recently moved to Amsterdam. It is assumed that the portrait was intended for a new place to show the author's skill as a portraitist, or perhaps with the help of the Rembrandt was hoping to impress the relatives of the future wife, Saskia, whom he married two years later, in 1634.

the Name of the last owner of the painting was not disclosed, but we know that she has an interesting provenance and was acquired in a private transaction at a Dutch gallery Noortman Master Paintings. Over the years of existence of "Self" had to go on the auction: the last time the painting was sold at Sotheby's auction in 1970-м year for £650 a Parisian collector George. O. Lighthouse. In addition, the "self" have been repeatedly exposed in the walls of the museums, including the Amsterdam State Museum in 1997 and London's National gallery in 1999.

In the first half of the twentieth century, the painting was inclined to consider the work the artist's Studio, but today the authorship of Rembrandt conclusively proven and "self-Portrait" remains one of his last works of this level, in private hands. That is why experts believe that the announced estimate of £12 million — £16 million ($15 million — $20 million) is justified and the work will be sold.

it is Possible that the story of "Men in beret" is also still pending and after a-то time we will see this work in a new way, or attribution.
