This 17th century masterpiece by Rembrandt, “A man in a gorget and cap” will be the highlight of this week’s  Christie’s London Old Master & British Paintings Evening Sale.  The work has a low estimate of $12.5m  and a high of $18.7 m.   It’s from the Pieter & Olga Dreesmann collection. This is a stunning work and its in pristine condition.    (A gorget is an article of clothing that covers the throat.)
