Portraits- People as Seen by Artists

The human being has always been the main subject of visual arts, as it is the measure of all things and the core of modern science, of anthropology, which developed further the old philosophy and theology. If the depiction of human beings was temporarily suppressed by abstraction during the modern era, new highlights of figurative paintings have been experienced since then. This auction presents a fine selection of works dedicated to the human being, executed in various media from the 16th century to the present. The selection includes works by such contrasting artists like Maurice Constant, Carl Rebell, Thomas Schütte or Dieter Blum, which reveal yet again that the concept of human beings cannot be more different.
