Review Entries for Day Saturday, January 10, 2009

Henry F. Tidey was a miniature and portrait painter who exhibited several dozen times at The Royal Academy from 1839-1869. This watercolour portrait of the handsome young army officer Captain Randolph Charles Wilson was painted in 1852. There is a record of a ‘Captain Randolph, Grenadier Guards’ being hung at The Royal Academy in 1853. Could this be one and the same? It is a nice example of how a portrait has a story to tell. The sale is this Wednesday 14th January 2009, and the estimate is £100-200.

Good Irish landscape paintings have character and quality and there are a number of highly regarded Irish painters from the 20th Century. Paul Henry (1876-1958) is the obvious example. Henry depicted nature as awe inspiring and powerful, and major paintings by Paul Henry regularly fetch six-figure sums. On 25 February 2009, I would expect more affordable prices when we offer two views by the Irish artist Alan Kenny which are in the tradition of the Irish landscape with nature as the dominant subject. The oil paintings illustrated are entitled Glencolmkille, Co Donegal and Part of Twelve Bens, Connemara. Both are signed, the largest measures 51 x 76cm and each is estimated at £300-500

Pictures of the Greek Islands, Corfu and the mainland are popular and whenever we have one in an auction sale there is interest, particularly from collectors in Greece (surprise, surprise!). This pleasing watercolour of The Acropolis was painted by Angelos Giallina (1857-1939). The colours are fresh and the artist has skillfully lit the ruins and statutory in the foreground. The estimate is £600-900 and the watercolour will be offered on 29 January 2009.

Here is an opportunity to buy a small original Lenkiewicz oil painting. This 11.5 x 16cm portrait study by Lenkiewicz will be offered in our auction sale on 25th February 2009. This is an early portrait of a young man from the 1960s, when Lenkiewicz lived in London and the subject is likely to be a character from the Loft Café in Hampstead. It is a strong character study, confidently painted in bold colours. It has been very nicely framed and is ready to be hung. It will be interesting to see what it makes in the sale. The estimate is £200-£300.

Some of the drawings and sketches by Robert Lenkiewicz that were sold in large folio groups in the Lenkiewicz Studio Sale 2008 have been re-offered for sale this month at Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood in Exeter. The drawings by Lenkiewicz had been removed from their folios and individually mounted and framed to a nice standard. I would estimate the framing cost of each to be in the region of £50.

18 NOVEMBER 2008 SOLD FOR £160

The drawings were largely early, from the late 60s and 70s, mostly made while Lenkiewicz was still in London. They were quick ink sketches of horses, some anatomical examples and figure studies. We put realistic and sensible estimates in the range £80-150 on each of the framed drawings and, with one exception, they all sold within estimate, typically in the £70-100 range. I expect to see more of these minor Lenkiewicz works coming to the market next year and it will be interesting to watch how the market and Lenkiewicz collectors respond.
