2002 CHRISTIE'S VICTORIAN PAINTINGS 11/26/02.This wide-ranging sale encompasses still life, landscapes, historical and domestic genre, and portraiture by important Victorian masters. Among the highlights are an impressive work by James Baker Pyne, View of the Custom House from the Thames; and a rediscovered picture by Pre-Raphaelite artist Henry Mark Anthony, Thinking of the Future, an Irish sketch. Another magnificent piece is a work by Claude Andrew Calthrop, La Lev?e de Monseigneur, which received a glowing critical reception upon its exhibition at the Royal Academy in 1873. Also featured are Henry Hetherington Emmerson's The Calf Yard, which exemplifies the appeal of rural subjects; and The Haymaker, raking by George Elgar Hicks.
