Meisterwerk in der Küche einer älteren Frau entdeckt

By Jordi Bou

October 23, 2019 - Ein frühes Renaissance Kunstwerk des Florentiner Malers Cimabue ist in der Küche einer älteren Frau in einer Stadt in der Nähe von Paris entdeckt worden. Es könnte bei der Versteigerung bis zu €6 Millionen erzielen.

“Christ Mocked”, part of a series of paintings from the late 13th Century, was discovered at the property in the northern French town of Compiègne.

The elderly owner thought it was just a rather old religious icon when she took it to her local auctioneers to be valued.

The painting is thought to be part of a large diptych dating back to 1280, when Cimabue painted eight scenes depicting Christ's passion and crucifixion.

Two other scenes from the work hang in the National Gallery in London (The Virgin and Child with Two Angels) and the Frick Collection in New York (The Flagellation of Christ).

“Christ Mocked” will go under the hammer at the Acteon auction house in Senlis, north of Paris, on October 27.
