Sotheby’s upcoming Made in Britain auction is the fourth instalment of a sale dedicated to capturing the diversity and innovative spirit of British art in the 20th-century, across Fine Art, Prints, Sculpture, Photography, Studio Ceramics, and Design. The sale encompasses almost 250 striking artworks illustrating the very significant role that Britain played in the development of modernism internationally. With estimates starting at just £200, and going up to £60,000, Made in Britain is the perfect opportunity for a new buyer’s first foray into collecting works by some of the most celebrated artists of the twentieth century – including L.S. Lowry, Damien Hirst, Patrick Heron, Norman Parkinson, Frank Auerbach, Mary Fedden and David Hockney. The auction will also offer works from the collection of the acclaimed writer Martyn Goff.
Gary Bunt (B.1957), PARSNIPS, SPROUTS AND GREENS. Signed; also signed, titled, dated 2013 and inscribed on the reverse. Oil on canvas, 65 by 81cm.; 25½ by 32in.
The sale also offers a wonderfully characterful painting by Gary Bunt – the artist’s debut at auction. Parsnips, Sprouts and Greens (est. £4,000-6,000) is painted in the artist’s typically naïve style. He describes the scene, ‘he’s picking the veg for Christmas lunch... but it’s sausages wrapped in bacon that fill my doggy dreams’.
