Alert Curators at The Metropolitan Museum of Art Snag Million Dollar Drawing For $840!

Alert Curators at The Metropolitan Museum of Art Snag Million Dollar Drawing  For $840! | The MET | Scoop.it

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York was able to buy a million dollar 1787 Old Master drawing for $840 at Swann Galleries in an Old Master Auction of 319 Lots, grossing slightly more than $500,000.

 

Paradoxically, Swann Galleries recognized the drawing's similarilty to the Jacques-Louis David painting titled Death of Socrates, purchased by The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1931, but failed to recognize this rare Work was one of several unique compositional drawings by a Jacques-Louis David.

 

For some reason, Swann Galleries overlooked careful comparison of the many differences of Lot 228 versus the 1787 Jacques-Louis David painting in the Collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art but alert Curators at The Metropolitan Museum of Art were able to capitalize on Swann Galleries giant mistake.

Read about how sometimes an art piece may be more than it seems...does this remind you of anything in our novel?
