Chinese bowl bought for $35 at a yard sale sold for over $721,800

An exceptionally rare 15th-century Chinese antique that wound up at a yard sale has sold for $721,800 at auction by Sotheby's, exceeding its top estimated sale price of half a million dollars.

Bought for just $35 near New Haven, Connecticut, last year, the small blue-and-white floral bowl is now worth nearly 29,000 times that price. It features motifs of lotus, peony, chrysanthemum and pomegranate blossoms, and was originally commissioned by China's imperial court during the Ming dynasty.
While Sotheby's is not disclosing the seller's identity, the head of its Chinese art department, Angela McAteer, revealed in a phone interview ahead of the sale that the man who found the bowl at the yard sale "didn't haggle over the $35 asking price."....

Scène de rue à Montmartre (Impasse des deux frères, le moulin à poivre) - Vincent van Gogh's exceptional 1887 painting

SOLD for €13,091,250 on 25 March, Sotheby's and Parisian auction house Mirabaud-Mercier

Estimate €5M-8M

On 25 March, Sotheby's and Parisian auction house Mirabaud-Mercier will offer Vincent van Gogh's exceptional 1887 painting, Scène de rue à Montmartre (Impasse des deux frères, le moulin à poivre). Kept for nearly a century in the same private collection, hidden from public view, the reappearance of this painting on the market is a rare event.
THE TWO YEARS that Vincent van Gogh spent in Paris, beginning in 1886, marked one of the most transformative periods in his career. Arriving from Antwerp, he soon encountered the work of the Impressionists and the Parisian avant-garde. “What people demand in art nowadays is something very much alive, with strong colour and great intensity,” he wrote to his sister in the summer of 1887.


Van Gogh lived with his brother Theo in Montmartre, a bohemian quarter being colonised by artists’ studios and entertainment venues. The peculiar urban yet rural atmosphere of the Montmartre “maquis” – a side of the district filled with vegetable gardens, abandoned quarries and grassy wasteland – fascinated the artist and he was especially drawn to the quaint windmills, some now repurposed into cabarets and other places of leisure popular with artists.


In Scène de rue à Montmartre, van Gogh depicts the famous Pepper Mill, also known as the “Moulin Debray”, located within the enclosure of the Moulin de la Galette. He uses this subject, which he includes in two more works from this time, not only to capture a vibrant and original view of the areas but also to further the plastic revolution spurred on by his artistic encounters. Emboldened by the new artistic styles of artists such as Paul Signac and Claude Monet, van Gogh was transforming his own painting through a mastery of colour, light and composition. It was in Montmartre, during the spring of 1887, that he finally lay the foundations of his inimitable style.
