Not Just Landscapes

Of course being in such a nation of wonderful landscapes, there are plenty of landscape paintings in this Saturday's Welsh Sale, but there is much more besides....portraits, animal studies, abstract, graphic art and much more....there really is something for every art collector. Here is a selection of ten non-landscapes!

Lot 64

EDGAR HOLLOWAY limited edition (12/50) etching, 1994 - entitled verso, 'Self Portrait No.25, Goodbye To All That', signed, 23 x 17cms Provenance: private collection, consigned via our Mid-Wales office Auctioneer's Note: this picture had strong overtones to Robert Graves’ autobiography Good-Bye to All That with its themes of saying farewell to both war and the time of youth. For followers of the artist, the image was quite well known, having featured as the cover image for Robert Meyrick’s 1996 catalogue raisonnée The Etchings and Engravings of Edgar Holloway



Lot 77

JOHN PIPER 1962 expansive screenprinted Sanderson fabric in two sections - entitled, 'Stones of Bath', 5.18 x 1.22 metres and 2.44 x 1.22 metres Auctioneer's Note: one of 5 John Piper designs commissioned by and as part of the Arthur Sanderson and Company centenary celebrations in 1960, and manufactured from 1962. Using 19 colours, far more than conventional screenprints on paper, the semi-abstract design was based on the architectural features of the City of Bath. Whilst we have auctioned sections previously, we do not believe such a large expanse has been offered at any auction before. As seen in the V&A collection.
