19th century paintings & sculptures at Sotheby's

On Saturday Angela and I went to Sotheby's to see the paintings and sculptures that are up for auction this week. I took photos of a few things I especially liked. If you want to see these things up close in person, the auction is this Thursday, 10/22 and you'll have to go before then. After that they'll disappear into private collections, so go get on it!
