ART MARKET WATCH
by Paul Jeromack
Christie’s New York
got the fall Old Master season off to a strong start on Oct. 4, 2007, with a sale that offered a few discoveries and some old friends well-known in the trade. Among the former was a fascinating late-16th-century still life of Flowers in a Glass Vase
(est. $1.7 million-$2.7 million) attributed to Ambrosius Bosschaert
, one of the first Dutch specialists in this popular genre.
