Fine Traditional and Contemporary Art Sale at Trump Turnberry Hotel on Sunday 19th November 2017

Home / Uncategorized / Fine Traditional and Contemporary Art Sale at Trump Turnberry Hotel on Sunday 19th November 2017

The sale consisted of 219 lots and included diverse array of original paintings. The sale offered works by contemporary artists, some of the worlds leading wildlife artists and traditional fine artists incorporating the Glasgow boys and Scottish colourists.

The highlight of the sale was a portrait of a young woman. Dressed in a yellow jersey and wearing a hat with an ostrich plume. The young woman is probably a daughter or the artist Sir William Nicholson.

Sir William Newzam Prior Nicholson (British 1872-1949) was an English painter of Still Life, Landscape and Portraits.  He was also known for his work as an illustrator, author of children’s books and designer for theatre.

The painting was estimated at £12,000 – £18,000    Ten telephone bids were prearranged by potential buyers.  The bidding started at £12,000 and slowly the sea of hands, dropped one by one and after protracted bidding it became a dual between two very determined buyers which ended in the hammer falling at £150,000 to much applause.
