One of the most important works by Greek painter Theodore Rallis (1852-1909) will be auctioned at the Greek Sale of Sotheby's auction house on Tuesday, 22 November, in London.
The painting "Holy Friday" (Meghali Paraskevi), created in Paris in 1885, comes from a private collection in Great Britain and has not been on display in the last fifty years.
The oil painting on canvas was presented in Paris the year it was created, and its estimated worth is between 340,000-540,000 euros.
'Holy Friday' portrays a church during Easter preparations. It shows four girls working together to decorate the Epitaph (bier) with flowers while two priests are talking to each other.
