£300,000 Bouzianis leads London Greek art sale

The biggest work ever to appear at auction by the major Greek expressionist painter Georgios Bouzianis, entitled Frau mit Tisch und Stuhl, is expected to sell for £200,000-300,000.

The artwork, measuring 138 x 105 cm, will go under the hammer at Bonhams' 16th Greek Sale at New Bond Street. The sale takes place on Tuesday, May 18.

According to Bonhams, a mixture of paintings and sculpture by some of the most famous 19th century, modern and contemporary Greek artists will be offered in its biannual sale.

The Bouzianis painting will feature among 145 lots, with prices ranging from £2,000-300,000.

Billed as the first Greek Sale of 2010, Bonhams will be hoping for a remarkable performance following the £7m in sales it achieved in 2009 which placed the auction house at the forefront of the UK's Greek art market.

Other important lots in the sale include Matins by Nikiforos Lytras (estimated at £200,000-300,000) and a beautiful seascape by Ioannis Poulakas, entitled Sailing Ship and Steamer (estimated at £150,000-200,000).
