Review of June 2011 Selected Picture Sale

Winchester Four I by Patrick Heron

Screenprint of Winchester Four I by Patrick Heron,
realised £3,850.

There was a very positive and enthusiastic response to the variety of pictures in the 7th June 2011 Selected Picture sale in Honiton and by all accounts the salerooms looked fantastic with a wide range of Modern British rubbing shoulders with minor Dutch Old Masters.

The dramatic Patrick Heron screenprint, Winchester Four I, was the leading lot selling to a collector for a very impressive £3,850 and an equally striking but more figurative painting of a Fashionable Lady on a White Thoroughbred by Anna Zinkeisen, which was in need of restoration, nevertheless made £850.
