During a hunting and militaria sale at the Cyril Duval Enchères auction house in La Flèche on Saturday, September 4, two works by Baron Karl Reille (1886-1975) stood out. the first, Chasse à courre au cerf, la sortie de l'eau (Stag Hunt: Coming Out of the Water), a gouache (32 x 48.5 cm/12.6 x 19.1 in), fetched €3,960, and the second, a rarer oil on canvas (54 x 65 cm/21.3 x 25.6 in), Les Abois, cerf chargeant les chiens (Stag at Bay Charging the Hounds), €3,100. However, the highest bid, €6,720, went to a khaki-painted American M1 helmet and its liner (expert: Mr. Brunel).
