New Normandie Panels for auction March 2017

HOT HOT HOT!  March 2017 update. We now have new graphics and some new details about this upcoming auction.

I have been so excited to receive so many emails about the Normandie Panels by Jean Dupas which many of you can see I have become slightly obsessed with.

This one came from Robert H. of Peekskill, NY  I believe these are a part of his personal collection.

Nearly all of these are pieces are adjacent to large groupings.

Most are part of the Chariot of Thesis.  One tiny far flung piece is from the Chariot of Poseidon.
