Modern British and Irish Art

Auction information

The forthcoming June auction at New Bond Street offers collectors an array of the very best of modern and post-war British and Irish art. Paintings fresh to market as well as rediscovered masterpieces and important works in the history of art all sit side by side in our 13 June sale.

Leading the way is Donnelly's Hollow, a large canvas by Irish master Jack B. Yeats. Carrying an estimate of £300,000-500,000 this is the first time the work has been seen in public in almost 60 years and it will return to Dublin for exhibition at Bonhams Molesworth Street 14 - 16 May, together with paintings by Paul Henry and William Scott among others.

Sculptors are well represented with Henry Moore, Lynn Chadwick, Barbara Hepworth and Elisabeth Frink in addition to a unique terracotta by Frank Dobson and a beautiful carving from 1930 titled simply Stag by John Skeaping. The nation's favourite, L.S. Lowry, is also included with stellar examples such as the fresh to auction oil The Red Bridge at £200,000-300,000, a variety of drawings and one of the artist's highly sought after and rare watercolours.

Other exciting consignments are two exceptional works on paper by William Roberts – Demolition Squad dates from circa 1941 and is estimated at £50,000-70,000 whilst Dominoes (Study for Jeu) (£20,000-30,000) is an early drawing from circa 1915 for a lost masterpiece. And from the other end of the century are examples by Frank Auerbach, Tony Bevan, David Hockney and Peter Blake.

We look forward to welcoming you to our galleries for the public view and sale itself, please do not hesitate to contact us with any advance enquiries.
