    IRISH AND INTERNATIONAL ART SALE ON VIEW IN LONDON

    Monday, October 14th, 2019

    Bridget Riley’s Serpentine Study 3 should serve to bring added international interest to Morgan O’Driscoll’s art auction in Dublin on October 21. The sale which includes this work goes on view at La Galleria, Pall Mall on October 14 and 15.  For the past several years the Skibbereen based auctioneer has boosted Irish art sales with new buyers by holding London viewings. The catalogue shows fresh to market works by Roderic O’Conor and Jack B Yeats and many other important Irish artists. On the international side it includes works by Andy Warhol, Alex Katz, Robert Motherwell, Tony Cragg, and others.  With work in most major UK museums, and in Paris, Chicago and New York, Riley’s Op-Art star is bright.  This piece is part of a series created for a big exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery in London in 1999 and is estimated at 40,000-60,000.

    UPDATE: THIS SOLD FOR 50,000 AT HAMMER
