About The Event

The CMA’s Tales of the City: Drawing in the Netherlands from Bosch to Bruegel is a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition featuring rarely seen drawings from the Albertina Museum in Vienna, one of Europe’s oldest and finest collections. Stijn Alsteens offers a historical perspective on the market for old master drawings, focusing on Netherlandish drawings.  

Stijn Alsteens is the international head of old master drawings for Christie’s auctions. Before joining Christie’s, he was the curator of Dutch and Flemish drawings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
