In an overall good state of preservation, covered in a thin layer of surface dirt and discoloured varnish. Approx centre of front beach hut has an incongruous and amended area to the surface which looks to be a broadly rectangular section which has been infilled on the left-hand side whereas the right-hand side appears to have conversely a section removed and therefore the overall effect is paper? sitting on top of the surface left-hand side and section removed right-hand side. This would appear to be contemporary with execution and the plausible brushwork remains evident. Please see image.
Auction: Line, Colour and Form, A Private Collection, 26th Feb, 2022
A Private Collection of mid to late 20th century paintings, prints, ceramics and sculpture are being sold in the single-owner sale Line, Colour and Form at Tennants Auctioneers on 26th February. Thoughtfully put together over the course of thirty years by collectors in the North East of England, the 125 lot collection is unified by a love of line, colour and form.
Each piece in the collection has been carefully selected, the discerning eye of the collectors’ choosing pieces on their artistic merit rather than by collecting particular artists. This has resulted in a disparate yet harmonious collection that includes works both by internationally celebrated artists such as David Hockney and lesser-known local artists.
Thursday 24 February 10am-4pm, Friday 25 February 10am-5pm and morning of sale from 8am
