Head of Sale, Nick Curnow, introduces us to The Huntington/ Macdonald Collection. Married in 1925, the artists Beatrice L. Huntington (1889-1988) and William Macdonald (1883-1960) established a strong artistic partnership that lasted the entirety of their lives. Within their joint collection, both artists are represented with a selection of work that reveals their key artistic preoccupations; particularly portraiture and the range of locations that they both lived in & enjoyed travelling to. The collection also contains works by other artists, both friends and contemporaries of the couple. William Macdonald’s most significant artistic friendship was with the Scottish Colourist, F.C.B. Cadell, and it is celebrated in the elegant portrait of William by his friend a highlight in our forthcoming 4th December auction.
