    UP THE WORKERS’ REPUBLIC, IRELAND AT WHYTE’S

    Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

    Harry Kernoff – Up the Workers’ Republic Ireland.

    Up the Workers’ Republic, Ireland is the title of this arresting watercolour by Harry Kernoff RHA (1900-1974) which sold for a hammer price of 1,600 over a top estimate of 1,200 at Whyte’s sales of Irish and International Art in Dublin.  The title of the work appears in nautical code (the International Code of Signals) on the rows of the flags.

    The auction grossed 850,000 with 78% of lots sold.  More than half went for over the top estimate. Over 250 bidders competed in the room, on-line, on the book or on the telephone. In this auction only 20% of lots sold went to internet buyers, which is lower than in previous art sales.

    Auctioneer Ian Whyte said that they are very pleased with this confident start of the 2017 series of art auctions, continuing the trend set in 2016.  Whyte’s will host an internet auction on April 3 and their next sale of Important Irish Art is on May 29.
