The consignment has not been announced by the museum. At the auction house, though, the paintings are displayed in their own gallery with the large label "Property from the Metropolitan Museum of Art."

|Robert, "The Ruins"|
The auction is estimated to bring between roughly $1.8 and $2.7 million to benefit the Met's acquisition fund for European paintings.
Here are the other Met offerings of note:
|Circle of Rembrandt|
Master of the Brunswick Dyptich, "Virgin and Child with Sts. Mary Magdalene and Dorothy."
Circle of Rembrandt, "Young Girl in an Interior," a beautiful small painting that came into the museum attributed to Rembrandt himself.
