Pictures

Daniel Goddard heads the Picture Department with the assistance of the respected expertise of consultant picture valuer Martin Scadgell. Our unique and comprehensive reference library and Internet services helps to ensure that clients' pictures are marketed to the best possible advantage.

Our Picture Department covers all areas, including oil paintings, miniatures, watercolours and other drawings as well as engravings, etchings and prints.

Over fifty years ago we identified an unrecorded Hogarth portrait (£24,000 in 1967) and a small sketch by Constable (£30,000 in 1968) and the firm has continued to achieve many world record prices over the last three decades, including £410,000 for a masterpiece by the Swiss artist Wolfgang Adam Topffer.)

We are indeed indebted to the founders of the Company for setting up a uniquely comprehensive reference library that lists artists and the prices achieved for their works over fifty years. This greatly helps us to ensure that clients' pictures are marketed to the best possible advantage.
