Contemporary Art & Modern British Paintings Auction At Ewbank’s.
Ewbank’s, Surrey’s leading international auction house, is preparing for its sale of Contemporary Art and Modern British Paintings on October 24 at its saleroom just outside Guildford on the A3.
Consignments of original artworks and limited edition prints for sale are being accepted until October 18, so do get in touch with the team for a valuation of any pieces to be consigned for sale.
Many intriguing works have already been catalogued including a signed oil-on-paper by Australian-British artist Sidney Robert Nolan (1917 – 1992), one of Australia’s leading artists of the 20th century. The large piece, measuring 53cm by 77cm, is entitled Australian Landscape, and has been valued at between £3,000 and £5,000.
Nolan worked in a wide variety of mediums and across many genres, but is best known for his paintings of legends from Australian history, including infamous bushranger and outlaw, Ned Kelly.
One of the highest-value pieces already catalogued for sale is a photograph by American artist David La Chapelle (born 1963). The large work, measuring 58cm by 38cm, is entitled Money Shot, and carries a pre-sale guide price of between £5,000 and £8,000.
A limited-edition bronze sculpture by renowned Spanish artist Salvador Dali (1904 – 1989) is also going under the hammer. The signed piece entitled Surrealist Angel, stands 56cm high, and is numbered 815 / 500. It has an estimate of between £2,000 and £3,000, and comes with a certificate and a copy of Rudolph Dom’s book, Salvador Dali The Surrealist Angel.
The sculpture is part of a single-owner collection of modern art sculpture, and modern design in this auction, consigned for sale by a London-based collector.
Other pieces from this collection include two, large, signed oil-on-canvas paintings of flowers by Annie Bardoulat (born 1962), both valued at between £1,000 and £1,500 each. One is entitled Iris VI and Violets and measures 160cm by 100cm, and the other, called Renoncules 2, is 146cm by 100cm.
One of the more unusual pieces on sale is a wooden sculpture of a pair of cowboy boots, by Italian artist Livio De Marchi (born 1943). Sold with a copy of the original receipt, the sculpture stands 33cm tall, and has a guide price of between £1,000 and £1,200.
