A painting by Claude Monet will be auctioned in June at the Château d'Artigny With a symbolic price of one million euros, this exceptional painting by Claude Monet, the father of Impressionism, will be the centerpiece of the auction of Rouillac at Château d'Artigny next June.

This work by one of the creators of the impressionist movement was disclosed by the auctioneers on Wednesday March 10 at the Museum of Fine Arts in Tours, a foretaste of the 33rd annual sale of the garden party at the Château d'Artigny in Montbazon, which will take place on Sunday 6 June.

Gian Lorenzo BERNINI (1598-1680) Sanguine Academy

Gian Lorenzo Bernini: an unseen drawing at auction

"Academy of man", a blood work representing a naked man with an imposing body, seated on a rock, the right hand on the forehead in a desperate attitude, will be sold on March 20 in Compiègne, town of the Oise where it has was discovered six months ago. This unpublished drawing by Bernini, Italian master of XNUMXth century sculpture, famous for having decorated the fountains of Piazza Navona in Rome, is auctioned at the end of the month in France, where it has just been rediscovered. "We see that the artist has not forgotten the power and virility of Michelangelo's subjects and that here, in this" Academy of man ", the character is constrained in the sheet, and if he unfolded, he would have more musculature and power; he uses this technique a bit like an illusionist, it is quite baroque ", says Dominique Le Coënt-de Beaulieu, auctioneer of the house Actaeon. Falsely attributed to the French artist Pierre Puget, the work was evaluated by comparing it with other drawings and authenticated by the American Ann Sutherland Harris, world specialist on Bernini. “There is almost no doubt, we are 99% sure that this is Bernini,” says Patrick de Bayser, an expert in ancient designs. "It is a very special technique, only he uses it. Although it is not a preparatory work for the Fountain of the Four Rivers in Piazza Navona, the figure in the drawing recalls the allegory of the Nile in Roman sculpture: a powerful man, seated, with a very similar attitude.
