19th & 20th Century European Drawings & Prints
Freeman’s 19th & 20th Century European Drawings & Prints specialists have international experience and proven record results for European artists. At our Philadelphia location and live online auctions, their knowledge and expertise of the current market is essential to the overall success of these sales.
Works from the late 18th to the mid-20th centuries are featured in these auctions, and consist of drawings, etchings, engravings, aquatints and lithographs in a variety of mediums such as gouache, pen, ink, graphite, pencil and charcoal. Our 19th & 20th Century team specialize in British and Irish watercolors and drawings from the Pre-Raphaelites through Samuel Palmer and Sir William Russell Flint, to Walter Sickert and Sir William Orpen, to genre and Orientalist works from France, Italy and Spain, and The Hague School from the Netherlands. These auctions often feature works by leading European printmakers of the 19th and early 20th centuries, such as Lautrec, Helleu and Zorn, and to the artists associated with the British etching revival from the mid-19th to early 20th centuries.
We have an extensive client base throughout Europe as well as a strong online auction presence. Frequently, European artworks sold at Freeman's will return to their point of origin. This recently happened with our highly successful George D. Horst Collection of Fine Art. Auction highlights are often exhibited in London to further international exposure and access to the European market.
Freeman’s offers drawings and prints from 19th and 20th century European artists at two auctions annually within our European art sales. Please contact one of our specialists to schedule an appointment for your private and complimentary consultation.
