The auction will be divided into two parts – the first will include 120 mostly paint-on-wood icons with a total value of around €800,000 from several Orthodox countries, including Russia, Greece, the Balkans and the Levant region.
Bids are expected to range from €600 to €50,000, making it open to collectors of all budgets, and the auction will also include an assortment of objects related to Tsar Alexander II, such as a small portrait by Alois Gustav Rockstuhl (1798 to 1877).
The second part of the auction will feature 38 paintings by contemporary Greek and Cypriot artists, some of which have been displayed in museums and galleries. A highlight of the auction is likely to be Ian Norbury’s Old Market in Famagusta, which gives a fascinating insight into the life of pre-1974 life.
All the works will be displayed at the Hilton in Nicosia until December 9, and will go on display at the Four Seasons between December 11 and 15.
