FROM Shinnors to Scott, Markey to Maderson the Morgan O’Driscoll Irish art sale in Cork on October 17 has much variety to offer collectors. There are abstracts and still lifes, landscapes, portraits, beaches, horses and cliffs. Despite the Yeats effect – the impact of the million euro Yeats’ painting at Adams at the end of September on the market for Irish art – the estimates in this sale represent good value.
The 285 lot auction is at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Little Island, Cork on October 17 at 6.30 p.m. Here is a small selection from what is on offer. The entire catalogue is on-line:
UPDATE: THE sale brought in 212,000 at hammer. The top lot was Potato Gatherers by Markey Robinson which made 6,400 and there were good prices for works by Mark O’Neill, Kenneth Webb, John Shinnors and Arthur Maderson.
