Modern Classics-Impressionism and Modern Art

This summer auction offers valuable artworks from the classic modern period, including an expressionist landscape by one of Switzerland?s most renowned artists, Cuno Amiet, as well as Hans Purrmann?s commissional portrait of Rose Surbeck, wife of the entrepreneur Heinrich Surbeck. Italy is represented by a unique terracotta sculpture hand-painted by Giorgio de Chirico. Further sculptural works include the bronze of a kneeling girl by Aristide Maillol, as well as a ceramic plate of a bullfighting scene designed by Picasso. The wide range of artworks is completed by one of Gustav Klimt?s nude paintings, and a charcoal drawing by Lesser Ury, to name just a few.
