A pair of Old Master paintings are estimated to sell for £8,000-10,000 in the Charterhouse two day 6th & 7th October auction in Sherborne.
“The paintings have been in the same titled family for many years and are quite an exciting discovery.” Commented Richard Bromell. “Dating to the late 1600’s they are fairly typical of the art which was proudly displayed in country houses but which is rarely seen today.”
The pair of pictures were painted by Adriean van Diest. Born in The Hague in 1655 he travelled to London aged just 17 where he was first employed by the Earl of Bath to paint views and ruins of the West Country.
The paintings at Charterhouse depict classical rural scenes. Measuring 61 x 72 cm they are set in period carved giltwood frames and are estimated as a pair at £8,000-10,000.
