A Victorian watercolour of the Nuremberg House of Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) features at the Dolan’s Irish art sale in Cork on January 22. Market Day by Arthur George Bell features the house which was Dürer’s residence between 1509 and 1528.
The house has since been restored as a museum which includes the large painting and printing workshop from Dürer’s time.
Arthur George Bell, a British artist, exhibited widely in the late 19th century at galleries including the Royal Academy, the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours, the Scottish Academy and the Royal Hibernian Academy. Market Day, in its original ornate gilt frame, is estimated at 1,000-1,500.
