THE Morgan O’Driscoll no reserves art sale of work by west Cork based artists on July 31 was 100 per cent sold. The top lot was Martin Stone’s oil of Ballydehob, which made 1,600. In general the 111 works sold for prices which were generally under the low estimate. There was a big attendance at the Skibbereen viewing and sale. The no reserve auction demonstrated a strong appetite for value in the market in the teeth of Ireland’s continuing recession.
