Contemporary Pictures Online – Auction Highlights

The Contemporary Pictures Online Auction ends on Sunday at 8pm, presenting an opportunity to bid on artworks you may have missed in the live sale! Below are a few of the highlights.

 

 514 – Barbara Robertson – Greener Grass

 Offered at an attractive auction estimate of £100 – 150, lot 514 presents an opportunity to own a charming piece by one of Scotland’s best loved and accomplished printmakers.

 

 

 

 551 – Charles MacQueen – Heat, Tangier

 Lot 551 is a classic example of MacQueen’s wonderful use of texture to create a shimmering and exotic world and carries an auction estimate of £800 – 1,200.

 

 

 

571 – Michael Durning – Last Tenement, Gorbals 

Known for his depictions of dilapidated and forgotten monuments and buildings, Michael Durning’s ‘Last Tenement’ is an imposing yet solemn reminder of the loss of a part of Glasgow’s rich architectural history.

Lot 571 carries an auction estimate of £600 – 800.

 

 

 

707 – Ethel Walker – Spray of Lillies

 Her still life paintings have been described as strong yet subtle, and this is a gorgeously elegant composition which highlights Walker’s tasteful approach to the genre.

Lot 707 carries an auction estimate of £1,000 – 2,000.

 

  

 708 – David McLeod Martin – Still Life (Red Pear and Lemon)

 This wonderfully bold still life by a master of colour is the perfect way to brighten up any room for the impending spring/summer season.

Lot 708 carries an auction estimate of £1,000 – 2,000.

 

 

 

709 – John Picking – Nostro Villiago (Our Village) 

This large canvas of a bird’s eye view of a Sicilian village is not for the faint hearted! With the curving stonework and steep, rolling hills, Picking has created a dreamlike composition which evokes a hint of Surrealism.

Lot 709 carries an auction estimate of £800 – 1,200.  

 

 

 

714 – Jack Vettriano – Future World 

 Jack Vettriano’s ‘Future World’ is a contemplative yet alluring effort at political commentary, and the placement of the Union Flag is certainly apt for a climate as divisive as the artist himself.

Lot 714 carries an auction estimate of £6000 – 9000.
