    Orange by Louis le Brocquy

    The top lot at the Morgan O’Driscoll sale in Cork on Monday was Sir John Lavery’s oil on canvas entitled Wilton. It made 10,250 against an estimate of 10,000-15,000. The sale of 285 lots was 69% sold and brought in a hammer price of 250,000.

    There was disappointment when the 1972 le Brocquy entitled Orange was withdrawn at 44,000, having failed to reach the low estimate of 50,000-70,000. Two limited edition colour prints entitled Human Image by le Brocquy each made 3,200. ¬†more…

    Dealers from around the country will be in attendance at the Munster Antique and Fine Art Fair.

    Organiser Robin O’Donnell of Hibernian Antique Fairs has been running regular fairs throughout Ireland for the past 20 years. ¬†Latterly he has upgraded a small number of these into two day events at venues like the K Club, the Culloden Hotel in Belfast and Dromoland Castle in Co.
