Renoir Nude For Sale

Renoir's plump naked bather Baigneuse (1888) comes up for grabs at Christie’s Impressionist and Modern Art Evening Sale in London on 20 June. Fifteen years ago it fetched £13.45m ($20.9m) a record price at auction for a nude by Renoir. We can safely assume it will exceed that sum next Wednesday, Lot 20. The auction also includes a collection of sculptures by Edgar Degas and a very creepy painting by Paul Delvaux Le Temple (1949) Lot 60, a snip at £1.5m to £2.5m (CLICK).
