A set of rare late Renaissance allegories of the months of the year surpasses the high estimate at Koller

The Old Masters auction on 23 September was led by a very rare series of five allegorical paintings representing the months of February, March, April, October and December by Abel Grimmer (ca. 1570 ? ca. 1620). The paintings had been conserved in the same private collection for over 300 years, and their rarity and beauty convinced a private collector to part with CHF 745 000 in order to obtain the series (lots 3033A ? 3033E, estimate CHF 500 000 ? 700 000).
