Sometimes They Go Too Quickly

December 18, 2018

Adrien Moreau “La Réception au Château”

Here is a nice story, in Forbes, about an important painting by Adrien Moreau (1843 – 1906) that our gallery recently sold.  We know that “La Réception au Château” was originally sold by Boussod, Valadon & Cie in 1888, and then seems to have disappeared. It surfaced in 2018 (130 years later), in pristine condition, and the gallery acquired it.  The painting sold before we even had a chance to exhibit it.  Sometimes, they go too quickly!
