NEW YORK, NY.- Sotheby’s announced that A Portrait of the daughters of Ramón Subercaseaux by Anders Zorn will highlight the upcoming New York sale of 19th Century European Art on 3 November 2015. Praised in his native Sweden and greatly esteemed in London, Paris, and especially in America, Zorn was among the most famous living artists at the turn of the twentieth century. The painting is expected to fetch $1,000,000-$1,500,000 at auction.

Zorn traveled to the United States seven times over the course of his career, and there he found enormous demand for his portraits. He was eagerly commissioned by some of the most significant names of the Gilded Age, including business tycoons such as Andrew Carnegie, art patrons like Isabella Stuart Gardner, and even three U.S. Presidents. Recently, interest in his work among Americans has been revitalized through a major retrospective exhibition which toured the Legion of Honor in San Francisco and the National Academy in New York City.

His technical virtuosity, personal vivacity and instinct for color and composition caught the attention of this dedicated international audience. Zorn’s career as a portrait painter began shortly after his arrival in Paris, when he was awarded a first-class medal at Paris’ Exposition Universelle of 1889 and decorated with the Légion d’Honneur (the most prestigious order in France). A Portrait of the daughters of Ramón Subercaseaux was commissioned by the influential and wealthy Chilean diplomat and artist, Ramón Subercaseaux, whose daughters, Blanca and Rosaria, are portrayed. The Subercaseaux children had previously been painted by Giovanni Boldini, as seen in the double portrait of Blanca and Rosaria’s brothers, Portrait of Luis and Pedro Subercaseaux (1887, Private Collection), the Portrait of the Young Subercaseaux (1891, Museo Giovanni Boldini), as well as in his portrait of their coquettish cousin, Giovinetta Errazuriz (1891, Private Collection).

A Portrait of the daughters of Ramón Subercaseaux will be exhibited in Stockholm for a special exhibition by-appointment on 21-22 October 2015. Upon its return to New York the work will be on view on 31 October-2 November.
