Another fairly quiet week in the auction rooms coming up:
BOSTON—Today, the Boston Public Library announced that two missing pieces of artwork from the library’s 200,000 item Print Collection have been found. The missing Dürer and Rembrandt prints had been misfiled and were located by Conservation Officer Lauren Schott during an 8-week search of the BPL’s print stacks.
