Big prices for Dutch and Flemish old master pictures are to be expected, but what made Sothebyís New Yorkís spring Old Master sale on June 8, 2007, particularly interesting were the strong prices for pictures and schools long deemed unfashionable. Fourteenth-century Italian gold-ground panels have long been a very specialized, scholarly taste, and though a few Americans collect them (most notably veteran New York dealer Richard L. Feigen), most are now bought by Italian collectors.
