While we’re focussing on the September sales (2nd, 3rd, 16th and 17th), I can’t keep myself from publishing already one photo from I painting we’ll be auctioning in October. It’s by Florent Willems, good XIXth century Belgian painter of “scènes galantes”. Bought by the previous owners at Verkoopzaal Leys when I was a rookie there in the seventies. “L’oiseau apprivoisé” it’s called. “The tamed bird”.
