The thrill of the country pursuits depicted in sporting pictures, the hunting, shooting, fishing and racing, continue to compel and captivate collectors. Buyers range from those who still enjoy these pursuits and wish to celebrate them, to those with country residences to decorate. Good quality examples, and especially those with a particular historical or geographical relevance, continue to perform strongly at auction.
Generating success for our clients hinges on our ability to offer a level of focused marketing effort that our competitors don’t, notably touring highlights of our sales round the country to the nation’s art capitals of London and Edinburgh. Our renowned capability for generating marketing coverage, combined with our wide international reach, results in strong results for our clients time and again. Enhanced further by our strong private client base and long held relationships with the trade, our prices are demonstrative of the value that can be added to your artworks by the individual focus our services provide.
Past items of sporting interest include a number of riding and hunting paintings and accoutrements, such as James Lowe’s The Last of the Leith Races, a large painting full of raucous Victorian characters and racehorses.
