Lost study by Anthony van Dyck auctioned for $3 million

Date: June 8, 2023 Time: 10:17:54

A study by the 17th-century Dutch painter Anthony van Dyck, court painter to Charles I, for the painting “Saint Jerome with an Angel” has been auctioned at Sotheby’s. The auction will take place in New York next week. Experts estimate the canvas at $3 million. This was reported by The Times on Friday.

The painting, depicting an old man with a chest-length beard, was found in a barn in Kinderhook, a small town founded by Dutch settlers in the late 17th century.

It was purchased in 2002 for $600 by Albert Roberts, a public servant and collector. He thought it was a painting by a Dutch artist from the past, but he didn’t know which one.

In 2019, it was established that the study was created by van Dyck between 1618 and 1620, when he was working on the painting “Saint Jerome”.

“Such works have not been demonstrated. The artist often kept them in his studio to have on hand at any time,” said Christopher Apostle, head of old master painting at Sotheby’s in New York.

Remember that two paintings of Queen Victoria, who ruled Great Britain from 1837 to 1876, were auctioned by Hansons Auctioneers in London. The auction will take place on January 28. Each painting is valued at £10,000.
