Sworders are delighted to offer five auctions a year dedicated to the sale of modern and contemporary paintings, sculpture, prints & multiples, and drawings. The calendar comprises two live auctions and three increasingly popular timed sales.
Catalogues feature works by largely, but by no means exclusively, British artists, including Henry Moore, John Piper, Dame Elizabeth Blackadder, Ben Nicholson, John Nash, David Hockney, L S Lowry, and Sandra Blow, with notable recent successes for works from St Ives School artists Sir Terry Frost, Patrick Heron and Wilhelmina Barns-Graham. This is a dynamic and popular area of the market with established and new purchasers keen to collect these bright and sometimes challenging works.
20th Century East Anglian art is now more popular than ever, with Sworders the market leader in the field, having established world record prices for several artists from the region. Works by Cedric Morris, Eric Ravilious, Edward Bawden, John Aldridge, Walter Hoyle, and Michael Rothenstein remain in high demand. Though, as prices for these names move further beyond the reach of most collectors’ pockets, we have seen a steady rise in the popularity of works from other local artists Lucy Harwood, Allan Walton and Joan Warburton.
Sworders specialist team has extensive knowledge and experience in assessing, valuing and promoting works of art. We uphold a reputation for our marketing prowess, which when combined with an extensive private client base, strong and longstanding relationships with the trade, and an international reach, has resulted in countless exceptional prices being achieved.
Furthermore, our London Gallery, situated just a moment’s walk from Leicester Square, adjacent to London’s vibrant Covent Garden in the West End, with its 700 square feet of exhibition space, enables us to showcase works in the very heart of the London and UK art market.
