Freeman’s European Art and Old Masters auction is led by William Bouguereau’s 1895 La Fleur Préférée, a quintessential life-size outdoor portrait of a farm girl. The February 14 auction also features James Tissot’s Sur la Plage and a rediscovered canvas by Bouguereau’s longtime student and wife Elizabeth Jane Gardner. The sale offers multiple collecting opportunities for post-Impressionist and neo-Impressionist canvases by distinguished artists from Édouard Léon Cortès to Gustave Loiseau. European Art and Old Masters brings to market works from across the continent, from Scotland, Switzerland, and Norway to Portugal, Germany, and Italy—with works made as early as the 16th century up to the modern period. Collectors will be pleased to find works by towering figures across periods, including a striking, freshly authenticated family portrait by George Romney and works by William Koekkoek, Carlo Dolci, Gustave Doré, and James Ensor.


The exhibition will be on view by appointment only at our 2400 Market Street location from February 7 to February 13, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM and on February 14 from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM. Please contact Raphaël Chatroux at to make an appointment. 

A special Highlights Exhibition will also take place at the National Arts Club of New York City (15 Gramercy Pk S) the week of January 23. For more information and to book a viewing time, please contact Raphaël Chatroux at
