106 prints and drawings from the so-called ‘Second’ Franz Koenigs Collection, owned by his late daughter Christine van der Waals Koenigs, were sold at auction (Sotheby’s) in New York. The highlight of the sale …

was the series of Months drawn by Hans Bol, which fetched $ 1,3 million. The drawings had been on long-term loan to Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, where most of the collection formed by the Dutch collector Franz Koenigs is kept since 1935.
