Poussin’s Ordination is making headlines this week as it’s expected to sell at Christie’s for £20 Million when it goes under the hammer on December 7th 2010. Christie’s will obviously be hoping for a repeat of last year’s Old Masters sale when a Raphael drawing sold for a staggering $47.9 Milliion dollars and a Self-portrait by Rembrandt sold for $33 Million. The Rembrandt was actually snagged by casino mogul, Steve Wynn.
Ordination painted in the 1630’s is actually part of a set of Poussin’s 7 Sacraments. And as part of a set, the selling off of “Ordination” is seen as diminishing the impact of the series by quite a few people. However, of the set of seven “Penance” was already destroyed in a fire, “Baptism” is in the National Gallery of Art in Washington and the other 5 are actually on loan to our very own National Gallery in London.
We’ve actually just finished painting a fine art reproduction of Poussin’s The Arcadian Shepherds. The original is in The Louvre.
