A Fine Pair by Georges Croegeart
This pair of finely executed oils by Georges Croegeart (1848-1923) would have been bid to £10,000 or more twenty years ago. Fashion has moved away from this type of art but shoots of recovery for such quality are now showing.
Croegeart was a Belgian academic painter who spent most of his career in Paris.
He is known for his genre paintings of elegant society women and humorous depictions of cardinals executed in a highly realist style.
The pair will be offered at £5,000-£7,000 as part of our Fine Art sale on 21st September 2016.
