A diving helment from the Tony and Yvonne Pardoe Collection, which will be auctioned
        in June 2016. We have exploited the Internet and social media to generate considerable
        interest in this niche collection some six months before it is due to be sold. Brian Goodison-Blanks reflects on how the Internet is changing the fundamental dynamics of the auction market. While there is no doubt that online technologies have been highly disruptive, the auctioneer has not fallen in the digital age. Indeed, by embracing the new technologies, Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood are reaching many more buyers world-wide, often for items with very niche appeal.

Daniel Goddard, Head of the Pictures Department, discusses the art of the narrative by looking at two exponents of the genre: the 19th century Dutch artist Johann Bernard de Hoog (1867-1943) and the English painter George Goodwin Kilburn (1839-1924) of the same period.
