    IRISH AND INTERNATIONAL ART AT RDS ON APRIL 29

    Thursday, April 18th, 2019

    The Irish and International art sale by Morgan O’Driscoll at the RDS on April 29 has been on view both in London and, for the first time, New York. The auctioneer has worked very hard over many years to enhance the international base of collectors of Irish art so it will be of great interest to see if the trip Stateside bears fruit in the way that various viewings in London have added a new dimension to these sales.

    Danish model and photographer Helena Christensen was among those who attended the New York viewing. The painting in the background is Isobel by Daniel O’Neill.
