Maison Bibelot Auction House organizes, thanks to the specialists in this department, auctions whose catalogues offer preciuos artworks as old master paintings and drawings, an art category very searched and important on the art market, now as in the past. Other than possesing precious artworks of renowned Italian and international artists, buying in old master painings and drawings auctions are a unique safe investment mode.

The most important paintings exposed by this Department come from house-sales organized in years by Maison Bibelot: Villa La Capponcina, Castello di Marignolle, Villa di Maggiano, Villa Rontani, Villa Pandolfi and Casa Ciardi Dupré and, more recently, the Collection of Old Master Drawings from Villa Piatti in Florence.

The Old Master Paintings Department carefully chooses oil on canvas or on table and icons to show in the six yearly auctions; authenticity and reputation are carefully checked for each and every artwork before including them in our auctions.
