Sporting Art

Sporting Art, Wildlife and Dogs

 

As a nation of animal lovers, it is no surprise that paintings of animals have long been a very popular area of collecting for the British Public. Be that pictures of our own domestic animals, or scenes that echo our nostalgia for the English Countryside and traditional sporting pursuits, we have adorned our houses with them for centuries.

We are currently inviting entries of paintings and sculptures for our sale to be held Wednesday 25 April 2018. Closing date for entries - Friday 9 March 2018.

The sale will include works by the following artists: John Emms, John Ferneley, Heyward Hardy, John Frederick Herring, Dylan Lewis, Sir Alfred Munnings, John Nost Sartorius, Sir Peter Markham Scott, David Shepherd, Archibald Thorburn, Arthur Wardle, to name but a few.

All works are carefully appraised and catalogued by our experienced specialist, Jane Oakley. Jane comes to us from Sotheby's where she was a director in the British Art Post 1850 Department and head of Scottish Art. She has a broad knowledge of British and Continental paintings and was previously head of the Victorian, Pre-Raphaelite and British Impressionist, Maritime and Sporting Art departments at Christie's.

If you would like to speak to our specialist or would like to arrange a valuation either at our Stansted or Hertford branches, or a home visit, please contact Jane Oakley on the email below.
