New record at Christie's

Category: Other stuff Created on Wednesday, 16 January 2013 09:36

At Christie's November auction, my painting 'Return of the J-Class - Solent 2012' broke a new record for one of my artworks.

The painting smashed the high end of the auction guide price estimate, setting a new personal record.

The next painting for Christie's spring auction is already underway and is of the J-Class again, this time at the first of last summer's regattas in Falmouth.  The painting features Lionheart ahead of the fleet in front of Pendennis Castle on Saturday's race of the Falmouth regatta.  Lionheart went on to destroy the fleet that day, taking line honours and announcing her arrival to the J-Class scene.  Danny Miller and Nick Wood, friends of mine aboard Lionheart described the race as one of their top ten races ever!

Keep an eye on the site to see photo's of the painting in progression.

After having finished my first painting of the triumphant return of the J-Class to British waters, I have just heard that the image will be used on the front cover of the Christie's auction catalogue for their autumn sale which will take place on 21st November.  This is obviously a massive honour for me and gives me my second front cover in two years.  To see more information on the artwork 'Return of the J-Class - Solent 2012' or to follow the auction, please got to www.christies.com.

In November 2011 my artwork 'Mariquita' Pendennis Cup 2010 was featured inside the back cover of the Christies catalogue as a double page spread.  This must have been a good omen, as the painting went on to fetch a new record for one of my artworks!

One of the highlights of my career so far is being given the honour of my artwork being used for the front cover of the Christies catalogue for the May auction in 2010.

 

Christies catalogue - Back cover

In October 2008 I was given the privelege of having my artwork on the back cover of the Christies auction catalogue.  My artwork 'Stiffening Breeze' - Tuiga & Mariquita was chosen out of all other artworks to be used for the sale promotion on the catalogue jacket.

This is an absolute honour particularly when you consider the calibre of other artists and artworks featured within the sale.
