    EXCITING OPPORTUNITIES AT WHYTE’S SALE

    Friday, March 1st, 2019

    Whyte’s evening auction of Irish & International art at the RDS on March 4 promises to deliver another exciting opportunity for collectors to acquire rare artworks.  Viewing is from 10 am to 6 pm each day from March 2. The catalogue is online. Here is a small selection:

    UPDATE:  Just under 90% of lots sold with a gross total of 1.25 million.  The highest price paid was €150,000 for a Jack Yeats 14 by 18 inches oil, titled “Justice”. A smaller Yeats oil – “A Passage is Required”, 9 by 14 inches, took a winning bid of €115,000. Both went to collectors in Dublin. A very large oil by James Humbert Craig, which was painted for the Empire Marketing Board in the 1920s for use on a poster promoting the linen industry, well exceeded its pre-sale estimate of €20,000 to €30,000, going to a Dublin collector who outbid a Northern Ireland institution at €54,000.

This is one of two O’Conor’s in the sale.  Both are from the artist’s studio sale at Hotel Drouot in Paris in 1956.
