The mess in Paris last weekend has resulted in a re-fixed match on Sunday 4th March. This has forced us to move our 'Sunday Sale' and we have made the decision also to 're-fix'. Therefore The Sunday sale will now be staged on March 25th, with our Major Irish Art Auction subsequently moving to May 22nd. The Interiors Sale still goes ahead on April 22nd.
Whilst a little frustrating, trying to compete with Ireland v France is not wise and it will enable us to add to an increasingly interesting May Auction. Last Friday we were in Belfast to consign the studio sale of George Campbell. Six major oils, 40 watercolours plus numerous sketches will make up the first part of the auction. These have come from the estate of the artist and show him at the height of his powers. We visit Belfast again next Tuesday, 21st for an 'Open Valuation Day' at Belfast Castle.
Jack Yeats, Roderic O'Conor, Daniel O'Neill and Michael Farrell plus a Private Collection from Dublin of 20 works, including the masterful Stanley Royle featured in last Saturdays Irish Times, will ensure a sale that won't disappoint.
Mid July is traditionally a quiet time in the auction world but we have plenty to keep us busy. We received instructions last week to conduct a house clearance auction in a lovely period house in Monkstown. The vendor is a retired solicitor, who has a fine collection of period furniture, paintings, silver, glass, etc. Everything will go under the hammer in September and i will post further information when available. I was out there all week cataloguing and photographing the house, you won’t be disappointed.
Don’t forget this Sunday we are hosting a talk with Eamonn Mallie at The D4 Berkeley Hotel. ‘You Don’t Get Cured That Easily’ will start at 12 noon and I’m sure Eamonn will inform and entertain in equal measure. Places are still available if you are interested in attending.
