    A large John Shinnors work from 1998 made a hammer price of £40,000 at Dreweatts saleroom in Newbury, Berkshire, today. Rising Kite, Clare Island Cycle from a corporate collection in the UK had been estimated at £10,000-15,000. It was one of the highlights at Dreweatts auction of modern and contemporary art. The auctioneers hailed the painting as: “a seminal example of Shinnor’s bold expressive style”. Represented by Taylor Galleries in Dublin the work of the Limerick artist is held by numerous public and private collections such as the Arts Council of Ireland, Ulster Museum, Belfast, Limerick City Art Gallery and the National Self Portrait Collection.
