Estimate: €200,000/300,000 Sports Painting, Lion Sculpture, St Sebastian, St Nicolas, Egyptian Goddess, Bastet, Egypt
A Regal Egyptian Goddess
This bronze, feline sculpture is the earthly representation of the goddess, Bastet: the protective divinity of the home, who is also associated with prosperity and fertility. Her worship began roughly around the 10th century BCE; and this movement grew into a sizable force. The size of this statue is incomparable too: at 27cm only a few similar models (those in the @britishmuseum, the @metmuseum and the @museedulouvre) exist.
The French sculptor (1840-1917) explores the intimacy and strength of maternal love in this striking bronze piece. #Rodin made the model in high relief bronze with a black patina in about 1885. Importantly, it was supposed to appear as part of the sculptor’s most ambitious project: “The Gates of Hell.” Commissioned by the French government in 1880, Rodin set out to illustrate Dante’s “Divine Comedy.” He had modeled roughly 200 figures before abandoning the project in 1889.

A Rembrandt Bugatti Sculpture in Marie-Régine Didier’s Collection
Marie-Régine Didier’s collection, which sprawled across her Paris and New York apartments sold for a total of €1.1 M. The top bid was for a four-legged friend by the sculptor, Rembrandt Bugatti. It is no surprise that the sculpture featured in the collection: Didier was supposedly an ardent dog lover. Bugatti made “Mon chien Wurst (My Dog Wurst) or Chien basset : Wurst le chien de l'artiste (Basset Hound: Wurst the Artist’s Dog)” in about 1905-1906.

Alone or in flocks, sheep have left their mark on European history. Not only were sheep weaponized in the trade war between France & England in the late 18th & early 19th-centuries, but Spain also jealously guarded the finest breeds. The art market is no exception...
