A 19th century "to be rediscovered" was the aim and the proposal that animated the latest auctions of the Department.
The 19th and 20th century Paintings and Sculptures department stood out thanks to the sale of relevant properties, such as the historical nucleus of the Bernasconi Collection, whose works, of significant artistic value, enriched the most recent catalogues, leading the department to a record turnover of over € 2.5 million. Many offers came from abroad, showing how the department's proposal has strong international connotations.
Works previously unknown by the market as well as authentic rediscoveries are the guidelines of the catalogues of the 19th and 20th century Paintings and Sculptures Department.

We are selecting artworks for the next auction
The Il Ponte 19th and 20th-century Paintings and Sculptures' catalogue comes from the concept of rediscovery. On the 14th of December, in Milan, 300 works made by important artists from this period will be sold in the auction. Numerous are the chiaristi or orientalist masters, among them Alberto Pasini. His Carovana alle porte di Costantinopoli (estimate 20,000-22,000) is an oil on canvas illuminated by the clear light of the blue sky. The horizontal cut makes it look like a movie frame.
