Yeats’ work achieves record price for a painting sold in Ireland!

Yesterday’s sale at James Adam & Son saw a painting entitled ‘A Fair Day, Mayo‘ by Jack B Yeats sell for €1,000,000 – a new record for a painting sold at auction in Ireland. The painting had been in private ownership since 1944 when it was purchased for £250! The pre-sale estimate was €500,000 – €800,00.
