Yeats work exceeds expectations at Whyte’s Irish Art Sale

Whyte’s sale of Irish Art on Monday last (10th October) grossed over €700,000 and has been deemed by the company as a very successful sale. The top price was €110,000 for Lot .32. ‘ Rescue Men’ by Jack B Yeats – against a pre-sale estimate of €60 – €80,000. Proof, yet again, that there’s no accounting for taste but perhaps it was purchased as an investment.

Other notable results were €60,000 for Lot.41.  ‘Connemara Landscape‘ by Paul Henry and a total of over €20,000 for Michael Hanrahan’s Royal Visit to Ireland series. The Percy French work, featured further down this page, failed to sell and maybe available for sale by private treaty through Whytes.

The next Irish Art Sale at Whytes is on the 28th November, 2011
