henry-mooreLondon Sale will take place on 22 November, ahead of the Evening Sale, while the Modern British & Irish Art Day Sale will follow on 24 November, featuring 93 lots with estimates ranging from £7,000 to £150,000, providing opportunity for buyers across every level. 8 King Street, St. James’s. The Modern British & Irish Art Evening Sale will take place on 23 November 2016. The sale, consisting of 39 lots, will be led by Henry Moore’s Working Model for Reclining Mother and Child (1975, estimate: £1,300,000-1,800,000), the second model the artist made in preparation for his large-scale sculpture Reclining Mother and Child (1975-76); examples of which can be found in the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, London and the Ohara Museum of Art in Kurashiki, Japan. Further highlights include Samuel John Peploe’s classic still-life from the 1920s Red and pink roses, oranges and fan (circa 1925, estimate: £600,000-1,000,000), part of a significant group of works by the Scottish Colourists, and John Minton’s painting Jamaican Village (1951, estimate: £100,000-150,000), which was last seen publicly when it was exhibited at the Royal Academy, London, in 1951. Gifted by the artist to Professor John Norris Wood, a distinguished natural history illustrator who taught at the Royal College of Art, it has passed on by descent but has remained unseen in the family home. Ben Nicholson’s April 1957 (Arbia 2) (1957, estimate: £600,000-800,000), one of the last in an important series of large and symphonic still-life paintings that he created in the latter half of the 1950s is also a centrepiece. Additional groupings include five paintings depicting coastal life during the interwar years of the 1930s by Eric Ravilious, Edward Bawden, Edward Burra and Edward Wadsworth, a wartime series by Sir Claude Francis Barry, together with Post-War artists such as Frank Auerbach, Lynn Chadwick, John Hoyland, Bridget Riley and Sean Scully.
