Two paintings discovered in a Toronto Goodwill donation bin last fall sold Tuesday for $134,000.
The works by Federico Del Campo, a renowned 19th-century painter of European scenes, are of a sunny Venetian backwater and of a Venetian canal with two ships, both dated 1895.
They sold for $66,000 and $68,000, respectively, at Waddington’s auction house in Toronto after brisk bidding by international buyers.
The same overseas bidder bought both works, Waddington’s said, paying $80,700 with a buyer’s premium for one painting, and $78,400 for the other.
