The London Auction

 

Coinciding with the launch of our new London Office in the heart of Leicester Square, Sworders are delighted to announce a very special auction to be held later in the year, celebrating the most iconic art, objects and imagery from across the capital. The sale is in the early stages of curation, however we have already secured an array of works including an atmospheric William Turner De Londe oil, circa 1830, of Waterloo Bridge, estimated at £6,000-8,000, a promotional “London” tour poster from Punk Rock band The Clash, an extraordinary group of unpublished photographs of notorious socialite Christine Keeler (The Profumo Affair), paintings of Royalty and early London Underground maps and posters.

From medieval artefacts to contemporary art, this sale will wholeheartedly embrace the spirit and style of London!

Categories to include – architecture, books, maps, pictures, prints, posters, photographs, memorabilia, collectables, Royalty, Punk Rock, The Olympics, London Transport, Militaria, The Swinging Sixties and much more.

The auction will take place on Wednesday 11 December - entries close Friday 18 October
