There was a surprisingly strong demand for watercolours in the major sale rooms at the close of 2015. A group of Watercolours that did not attract any bids from me, were strongly contested. An unsigned David Cox making over ten thousand pounds and a group of very late and loose William Payne's together with a late Callow of Venice all selling for very strong prices.
Whether this renewed appetite for English Watercolours is reserved just for the large Auction houses is unknown. That question will, I expect be answered for us all next week at The Art on Paper Fair. The fair is opening on Wednesday 10th of February at the Royal Geographical Society and runs until close of play on Sunday the 14th (Valentines Day) . I will be showing some thirty five selected watercolours with a range of prices from nine hundred to nine thousand pounds. Please email me if you would like an e ticket. Come along and see what I think will be an interesting show this year in its new venue. Royal Geographical Society is at 1 Kensington Gore not far from the Albert Hall. Good transport links to Knightsbridge and South Kensington. Bus routes nine and ten stop almost outside the Venue.
