Old Master and British Drawings and Watercolours
Sale #21459

The Old Master & British Drawings & Watercolours sale is led by a luminous late 1820s watercolour of Sunrise off Margate by J.M.W. Turner; a wonderfully atmospheric drawing not seen on the market for over 50 years.

The British section of the sale presents eighteenth-century and nineteenth-century drawings including a powerful Thomas Gainsborough of A Young Man reclining on a Bank beneath a Tree, possibly a self-portrait, a remarkable early work by John Constable, and a charming group of George Romney drawings and sketchbooks, as well as several 18th Century pastels.

The Old Master Drawings section of the sale will present a curated selection of fine works on paper spanning the 16th to 19th century from the French, Italian and Dutch and Flemish Schools, represented by the most celebrated artists of these periods.
