Sotheby’s New York Masters Week features works from the Theiline Scheumann Collection. Comprising a dozen paintings carefully assembled over a two-decade period, The Scheumann Collection abounds in pictures that are quintessentially Dutch, spanning the different movements of Dutch 17th Century painting. One of the first female collectors in America to put together such a collection, Mrs Scheumann was careful to collect only the finest quality works with distinguished provenance, showcasing the best Dutch painting has to offer. The sale marks the first time many of the pieces have appeared on the market in over 30 years.
Sotheby’s will showcase work by master painters Jan van de Velde III and Frans van Mieris the Elder. An auction will take place on January 26.
