The Summer Art Sale

18/06/2021

Our eagerly-awaited Summer Art sale is here. This auction catalogue includes a fine selection of artworks from artists past & present - a sale of selected pictures from local, national & international estates and private vendors.

Featuring:

Several important pictures from local deceased estates which have not been on the market for about 20 years by artists including Edouard Léon Cortès, Marc Aldine (Antoine Bouvard Snr.), Heywood Hardy, George Wright, and John Emms.

40 Works by Staithes Group artists covering all types of scenes in North Yorkshire.

Another large Richard Weatherill oil coming to auction as a result of our success in selling the almost identical view of Whitby Harbour in the Winter Art Sale for £9,600. This is one of six works by the Weatherill family.
