Strong Results at Whyte’s Sale of Irish & International Art

Whyte’s sale of Irish & International Art – Dublin 29th September, 2014

There were strong results for both contemporary and traditional works in last night’s Irish & International Art Auction.  The top result achieved was for the featured front cover entitled LE COURTISAN GROTESQUE (NO. 6) by Joan Miró which sold for €68,000 and Sir John Lavery remains ever popular with bidders battling it out for LADY IN GREEN (MRS. CARA H) which finally sold for €30,000.  Andy Warhol was in demand by both national and international bidders with DOUBLE DAISY exceeding its estimate to sell for €27,000. Whyte’s Press release.


Above: Lot.101. The child-like series of squiggles of Spanish painter Joan Miró “Le Courtisan Grotesque (No.6)” achieved, as expected, the top price – €68,000 (pre-sale Est.€60-80,000). As abstract stuff goes, it’s inoffensive, but not my cup of tea.

Below: Lot.100. the Andy Warhol screenprint “Double Daisy” again inoffensive is the best that I can say but at €27,000……


Suprisingly, Lot.22. an oil on canvas by Paul Henry “In the West of Ireland” failed to sell (the pre-sale estimate of €45-55,000) but you can still have it – see below.
