Sotheby's Zurich

Today have been at Sotheby's Zurich seeing the "Highlights from the London Impressionist and Modern Art Sales" exhibition with paintings that will be auctioned in London on 2007-02-05/06. Just a few paintings, but ....

Picasso, Munch, van Gogh, and especially a magnificent Renoir.

The estimated price for the above Munch is EUR 1'040'000 - 1'340'000.

This Renoir has an estimated price of EUR 8'890'000 - 11'850'000. I would pay it, but we will see in February what the going rate is.

Last auction in Zurich had a beautiful Hodler.

Here is a Neue Zuericher Zeitung article about that auction which brought a record price (CHF 5.73 mio) for a Swiss painting:

Mit Hodler über dem Nebelmeer

Actually (in)famous Swiss politician (and industrial [EMS-Chemie]) Blocher is known to be a Hodler collector.

Here you can search for Sotheby's events, maybe you happen to be in one of those cities (you can also narrow the search down).
