Masters Week is a series of auctions that includes Old Master and 19th-Century painting, drawing, and sculpture. The tour will focus on a special auction, Bouguereau and His Circle: Then and Now, featuring works realized and inspired by William Adolphe Bouguereau, including paintings by his wife, Elizabeth Jane Gardner Bouguereau, one of the leading American painters of her day, and contemporary artists working within the realist tradition, including Zachari Logan, Kadir Nelson, and Han-Wu Shen. Highlights from other sales across Masters Week include a recently rediscovered portrait by Bronzino (profiled in the NYTimes), an extraordinary collection of Baroque paintings, and exquisite works on paper.

Kathryn Kremnitzer joined Sotheby’s in June 2021 as an Associate Vice President, Specialist in 19th Century European Paintings. She earned her PhD at Columbia University in 2020 with a dissertation on Édouard Manet’s work across media in the 1860s. She was previously Research Associate in the Painting and Sculpture of Europe department at the Art Institute of Chicago, where she worked on Manet and Modern Beauty (2019), Monet and Chicago (2020), and Cezanne (2022), and contributed to the online scholarly catalogue of Manet’s works in the collection. As a Curatorial Assistant at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, she worked on Madame Cézanne (2014) and Tiepolo Caricatures from the Robert Lehman Collection (2014).
