Novem­ber 12

Mak­ing an ap­pear­ance at the Im­pres­sion­ist & Mod­ern Art Evening Sale by Sotheby’s New York, this dual-faced oil on can­vas by the Ger­man ex­pres­sion­ist is es­ti­mated to fetch in ex­cess of US$12 mil­lion. The Recto (above) de­picts a blaz­ing catas­tro­phe in which two peo­ple flee a shaken land­scape, and is jux­ta­posed with the Verso (above right), a sig­nif­i­cantly calmer por­trayal of a young man in a straw hat, sit­ting lan­guidly with a book and a pipe.
