November 2019 Sale Results

Results from the Saturday November Sale

Over 370 lots went under the hammer in Brown and Turner’s auction of Antiques, Fine Art and Jewellery on Saturday. The highlight was Lot 106, a Japanese Export Lacquered Work Box with a quantity of Chinese Mother of Pearl gaming counters, mostly crested and bearing the signature “vi et copia”. The hammer went down at £2,400.

The lot, probably from the Meiji period, was consigned from Edinburgh and gained interest online with 4 internet bidders and 2 telephone bidders. The buyer is UK based and paid nearly 5 times over the estimate showing the growing popularity of Japanese artefacts.

Lot 182, John Moore’s (British 19th century) “Boats at Rough Sea” oil on canvas drew a lot of interest online, on the phone and in the room. The well known 19th century British artist’s painting made £950 to a UK phone bidder.

Lot 322, a Set of William IV Scottish Mahogany Dining Chairs were sold by a local private client. The twelve chairs and one carver gained a lot of interest in the room and on the phone and were finally bought for £1,200.

Mulholland is an artist whose work bridges any number of divides. He is a highly skilled painter whose career, since graduation from Glasgow in 1991, has included exhibitions at some of the country’s most illustrious venues. Yet in recent years his work has also been seen in places considered the epitome of contemporary cool such as Tate Britain and the Whitechapel Project Space. His handiness with a paintbrush is not in doubt, yet these days, he is as well known for his digital animations as his brushwork.

Awarded the Glasgow Visual Artists Award and the Creative Scotland Artist Award, he lives and works in Glasgow and is currently course leader and lecturer in Fine Art at The Glasgow School Of Art. He has founded the artists collective OPERA AUTONOMA and also collaborates with artist Michelle Hannah as PICANA ELECTRICA
