It is, with no doubt, the department with the best adjudications of our sales, it is enough to mention the pair of paintings by Panini sold for € 393.000, currently the record of our auction house.
A lot of important works were put for sale during our auctions, with a prevalence of paintings from the Genoese school of the 17th and 18th century which were sometimes ascribed for the first time with works by Cambiaso, Paggi, Bernardo Castello, Fiasella, Strozzi, De Ferrari, Guidobono, Tavella, Carbone, De Wael, Borzone, Bertolotto, Travi, Ansaldo, Piola, Assereto, Valerio Castello. There had been also great adjudications as for Italian painters, like, for example, more than160.000 euro for a painting by Gaspare Diziani or the recent 190.000 euro for the view of the Diocletian’s thermal baths by Van Lint. These paintings are usually sold three times per year within the Fine Arts catalogue or with a dedicated catalogue.
