We are delighted to be launching our inaugural sale of Old Master, British & European Art in the autumn of 2022. The sale will cover works dating from the 15th century to the beginning of the 20th century, including prints, works on paper and oil paintings. Sales will offer a fascinating mix of styles and periods from early portraiture, still lifes and landscapes, portrait miniatures, golden age watercolours, maritime art, through to Victorian, symbolist, Impressionist, Pre-Raphaelite and the Belle Époque, and with estimates starting from £300, there will be something for every pocket.
Within the market for Old Master, British & European Art, Sworders holds several notable successes, including a John Constable oil of Dedham Vale selling for £91,000 including fees in December of 2020. Other highlights include the works of celebrated artists such as Thomas Hudson, Allan Ramsay, Peter Monamy, Montague Dawson, Edouard Moyse and John William Waterhouse.
Sales will be held twice per annum, presented in thoroughly researched and fully-illustrated printed catalogues, mailed to a large database of active collectors. All sales will be available for live internet bidding on our Sworders Live platform, for which bidders pay the same as they would as if they were bidding in the room, and will also be listed on other leading international platforms.
