The Evening will start with drinks and nibbles, followed by Harry Moore-Gwyn taking you on a Private Tour around his forthcoming British and Continental Pictures and Prints Auction which takes place two days later on the 25th October.
Harry will guide you through the fine group of prints from a private collection including works by Millet, Bonnard, Toulouse Lautrec and Whistler as well as Claude Flight’s iconic twentieth century linocut “Speed”. He will then interpret the fascinating group of watercolours by one of Britain’s favourite caricaturists Thomas Rowlandson. From the twentieth century, a group of works by the rare and engaging British painter Kenneth Rowntree as well as a study by Gaudier-Brzeska for his best-known sculptural relief, “The Wrestlers” will also be examined . An intriguing group of earlier European paintings will also be reviewed by Harry during the Talk, amongst them a captivating portrait of a lady holding a red book from sixteenth century Palma.
