Prestige Summer Auction dates set

It’s auction time in Monaco and this summer, Accademia Fine Art will be organising two events at the Hôtel Metropole with a vast selection of beautiful pieces.
Accademia Fine Art has joined forces with Drouot Digital Live, Lot-tissimo and Invaluable for a summer auction coming up on 6th August.
All in all, 230 pieces will go under the gavel including beautiful furnishings, one-of-a-kind objets d’art, letters, manuscripts and modern and classical art pieces from private collections. These sought-after items will all be up for grabs starting at 4:30pm at the Hôtel Metropole.
All pieces will be available for viewing at the hotel from 31st July from 10am to 7pm until the day of the auction so the actual condition can be determined.

Some stand out pieces include a ‘mixed media’ piece by Spanish contemporary painter and sculptor Manolo Valdes, a Serge Poliakoff painting, a pair of Sevres painted porcelain cups with lids from 1769, and ‘The feast of St. George’ by Jan I Brueghel Dit Brueghel De Velours (Bruxelles 1568 – Antwerp 1625), a rare oil on panel from the Emil Georg Bührle Collection dated between 1585 and 1586 and valued at between 550.000 and 750.000€.

Additionally, Accademia will host another auction on 23rd July, also at the Metropole, featuring nearly 300 rare timepieces and unique fine jewellery. Previews of the pieces begin on the 18th.
