Modern & Contemporary Prints

 

Launched in January 2017, Sworders Modern and Contemporary Prints department now conducts two specialist sales each year. 

The sales are diverse, catering for all tastes and budgets, offering works by leading British and international printmakers such as David Hockney, Andy Warhol, Yayoi Kusama, Damien Hirst and Banksy. Realised prices reflect the growth in demand for Prints which are proving a hugely popular way to engage new audiences in art collecting due to their affordability and accessibility.

Highlights include Andy Warhol’s ‘Tomato-Beef Noodle O's, From Campbell's Soup II’ which topped the November 2017 sale achieving £13,000 plus buyer’s premium and Yayoi Kusama’s ‘Tulipe (I)’ which sold for £9,100 plus buyer’s premium.

To find out more about our forthcoming sales or talk further about potential consignments, please don’t hesitate to contact one of our specialist team.

 


 

Patrick Hughes "Reverspective"

British born artist Patrick Hughes invented the optical illusion coined “reverspective”. He constructs wedge-shaped blocks of wood painted with scenes of interior spaces, including this gallery scene titled 'JAZZ', hung with iconic works from the Henri Matisse Jazz Portfolio. As viewers move along the artwork, the compositions appear to move.
