We cannot guarantee a reply to any requests made within 48 hours of the start of the auction. The absence of a Condition Report from a lot does not mean that the lot is in perfect condition. A Condition Report is an honest expression of our opinion, not a statement of fact and is provided as a service to the seller. All lots are available on public view ahead of an auction and we encourage prospective buyers to inspect an item in person where possible. Our Condition Reports are not prepared by professional conservators, restorers, or engineers, and are prepared with the naked eye unless otherwise stated.
Regarding Pictures, Prints and Works on Paper, works are not examined out of the frame, unless specifically stated. Tennants Auctioneers do not cover damage to gilded wood or plaster picture frames, or to picture frame glass whilst the item is in our possession.

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
