In June I reported the news that this year's Paris Biennale would be replaced with an online sale at Christie's Paris. The catalogue for the Biennale sale has just been uploaded to their website. This diverse sale features old master paintings, antiquities, modernist sculpture and fine furniture from a variety of different periods. It includes lots from some of France's top dealers.

The old master paintings side of things is very well represented. The highlight is the above Summer Harvest by Pieter Bruegel the Younger. Estimated at €400,000 - €600,000, the work has been offered for sale by the gallery owned by the fair's president Georges de Jonckheere. Other artists whose works are up for sale include Jan van Kessel, Herri met de Bles, Jean Baptiste Pater, Marguerite Gerard and Hendrick van Steenwyck the Elder.

Online bidding runs from 24th September - 8th October.
