As I move into my dotage friends and family have suggested I start a blog to share my views on art, the art market and all associated matters that arise from time to time. I have been immersed in Irish Art from a very early age, when in short trousers I would accompany my father to various auction houses and dealers, where he was always on the lookout for “something special”
From my early days in James Adams, to working with John Taylor and then setting up deVeres, I have been in the game a very long time. I have witnessed numerous market upheavals and seen many Artists scale great heights in auction room ‘fever’.
We are now going through different times and while there is a lack of supply of real quality items, there are buyers waiting to pounce if the right thing appears – all very exciting.
