Pierre Bonnard's Nature Mort Aux Peches to make $906,000?

Nature Mort Aux Peches et au Pot Jaune, a painting by Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947), is to highlight Sotheby's Impressionist & Modern Art Day Sale in London on February 6.

The work dates to 1931 and is valued at £450,000-550,000 ($741,240-905,960).

Bonnard was a French artist best known for his role, in the 1880s, as a founding member of Les Nabis - a collective of post-impressionists who laid the foundations for the development of abstraction.

Nature Mort Aux Peches follows on from the fragmentation of the group in the early 1900s and is a prime example of the intimate, quiet themes and vibrant colouration that defined his later period.

His record price at auction was set at Christie's New York in 2011, for Terrasse a Vernon, which sold for $8.4m.

Fernand Leger's composition (Nature Morte) will carry an estimate of $400,000-600,000.

Executed in 1937, the still life displays the melting pot of influences Leger absorbed and reframed throughout his career.

A major work titled Les Cylindres Colores (1918), which displays the mechanised forms he adopted following his experiences on the western front, is to auction at Christie's London on February 4 with a £7m ($11.4m) estimate.

His auction record was set at $39.2m for Study for the Woman in Blue at Sotheby's New York in 2008.
