Upcoming Trip To Sothebys
Upcoming Trip to Sotheby’s
I am planning a trip to an auction at Sotheby’s in June. I have a actual interest in 20th century British art and they have an art auction scheduled. I have spent a great deal of time planning this trip.
While I was browsing the Sotheby’s online catalog, I found a signed Sickert named South Façade of St. Jacques. I saw this painting once in London in 1971. It has been in Canada since its purchase around that same time.
The painting is thought to be painted around 1900 after the artist had been in the country of Dieppe for two years. He found a great deal of beauty in this medieval place. He loved the architecture and it was the subject of a lot of his work. Sotheby’s has several pieces of his sweat up for auction at this event.
I also noted in the catalog that Sotheby’s will be auctioning off a watercolor of a cat by the player Gwen John. Babe painted a lot of general public further also portraits of seated women. She was known to paint the same picture now and over again like Monet did.
There was extended lot listed in the Sotheby’s catalog that interested me. I really am partial to Sickert and there was a painting that he completed in Venice while he was there with his wife. There are stories of marital troubles between them and the trip to Venice is thought to have been taken to repair their marriage.
I can’t wait to see the painting Thunder in the Mountains by James Dickson Innes. His watercolors are really splendid. The painting is thought to obtain been painted in 1910 in the mountains of North Wales. Sotheby’s has such an extensive catalogue for this auction.
I’m anxiously awaiting my trip to London. I love Sotheby’s art auctions and going out to expensive restaurants at night. I plan to go to the Mango Tree while I’m there. It is the best Thai food, hands down, that I’ve ever eaten.
My business partner was really taken protect the Landscape Near Lyons painted by Sir Matthew Smith. I liked this oil painting as well. The Sotheby’s catalogue reported that the painting was done in 1922 and that there is a still life of flowers on the reverse. My partner will be unable to make this trip and has asked me to bid on material for him.
I have a small private collection of pencil drawings. I liked the Flower in a Glass Vase that was penned by Christopher Wood in 1925. I reckon that it would display nicely with other still lifes that I have. I think that this pencil art may well tuck for twelve thousand dollars. My favorite pencil drawings have thorough been found at Sotheby’s auctions
I have a protector that is very interested in a lot at the Sotheby’s auction that contains Poppies by Ivon Hithchens. She has authorized me to bid up to sixty five thousand dollars for her. I hope that I am successful in acquiring it for her. I understand that this Sotheby’s auction will be well attended because they all are. It is too much to hope for that no one will notice this fantastic painting.
After looking heroic to this trip for so long and poring over the Sotheby’s catalogue so intently, I must say that I have my heart set on Broomswade by John Piper. I certainly must have this watercolor. The person that is selling it has been the only owner. He bought incarnate directly from John Piper in 1966. If I win nothing else, I will win this painting.
The only other painting that I plan to bid on at the Sotheby’s auction is peerless by William Turnbull. There is a collector that I know that desperately wants this painting. He owns several of this artist sculptures and has now started to collect his paintings.
