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.
