Modern Rome – Campo Vaccino


This is a 170 year old painting by the British artist J. M. W. Turner and is supposed to go to auction on 7 July 2010.

Sotheby’s auction house said the painting was being sold by a descendant of the 5th Earl of Rosebery to help secure the future of estates. The painting has been estimated to fetch £18 million. It will be on view in Sotheby’s New York auction house from 29 April to 14 May, before returning to London for the auction. The painting, which is in immaculate condition, has been described by Sotheby’s as “undoubtedly among the most important of Turner’s works ever to come to auction”.
