Le Courtisan Grotesque, a 1965 watercolour, gouache, ink, pastel and pencil on paper by Joan Miro was the top lot at Whyte’s sale in Dublin on Monday. Signed and numbered (6) on the lower right it sold for 68,000. Sir John Lavery’s Lady in Green (Mrs. Cara H) sold for 30,000 and Andy Warhol’s Double Daisy made 27,000. An oil on board by Dan O’Neill, Studio Interior, made 29,000 in an auction which saw strong results for both contemporary and traditional works.
