Giovanni Francesco Barbieri and Tina Blau are among the highlights at Dorotheum's auction

From April 20-22, art lovers and collectors will be offered a "sumptuous selection" of old master paintings, 19th century paintings, jewellery and antiques.

The sale will be held by auction house Dorotheum, which hopes to continue its 2009 performance, "the second most successful year in the Dorotheum's history."

Antiques will be sold over two separate events, with furniture and silver presented on April 21 and sculpture, glass and porcelain on April 22.

 Giovanni Francesco Barbieri, Il Guercino (1591-1666)
