Graham Budd Art's timed auction supports emerging & young artists, sale includes almost 30 works by L.S. Lowry
The sale features 200 lots of originals, period posters and signed limited edition screenprints and sculptures with estimates between £200 and £32,000 by well-known artists.

LONDON.- A fascinating group of items relating to iconic artist L S Lowry, including a signed train ticket are among the highlights of Graham Budd Auctions’ timed auction devoted to Art for all Walls of Life which is running from now on until the evening of Sunday, December 11, 2022.

Almost 30 works relating to Laurence Stephen Lowry RBA RA (1887-1976) are on offer. One of the more unusual pieces is a signed page & train ticket stub dated 18th May 1951 that was given by the artist to a fellow traveller travelling from Salford is estimated at £4,000-5,000 and being sold by a private individual, while a collectors vase designed depicting Lowry’s famous sketch The Football Match and is one of only 50 created by the Dennis Chinaworks and designed by Sally Tuffin is estimated at £800-1,000. Elsewhere, an original drawing on paper titled The Old House, that was purchased from Sotheby's by a private collector is expected to fetch £20,000-22,000, while a signed original red chalk drawing, dated 1966 of The Three Figures carries £16,500- 18,500.

The sale is being curated by Kevin Turton, who has joined Graham Budd Auctions as Head of Art earlier this year. He said: “So soon after the sale of the famous work Going to the Match by Lowry for a phenomenal £8million, we are very pleased to be offering a wide range of items by Lowry that show how affordable some of his works can be. I particularly like the red chalk sketch, which is a superb example of Lowry's original work encapsulating all the elements that he is so well known for producing. There appears to be a story behind this group of three people. It looks as though there is the writing 'child', below the third figure on the right and possibly the 'beginnings of a dog on the right side. The paper Lowry used to draw this red chalk sketch is very delicate. The previous owner had the work for well over twenty years and it is an intriguing and typically quirky scene by L.S. Lowry.”

An oil on board by highly-sought-after Welsh-artist Sir Kyffin Williams OBE RA (1918- 2006) of Skye from Harris Outer Hebrides dating from 1950 is estimated at £30,000-32,000.

The sale features 200 lots of originals, period posters and signed limited edition screenprints and sculptures with estimates between £200 and £32,000 by well-known artists such as Joan Miro, Marc Chagall, Pablo Picasso, Sir Quentin Blake, Damien Hirst, Sir Jacob Epstein, Banksy and David Shrigley as well as a range of emerging artists.

Emerging Artists

An original painting on a deep canvas by Anne-Marie Ellis titled 'Tiffany Blue 1837' is estimated at £600-700. Kevin Turton commented: “Artist Anne-Marie Ellis is known for her fashion focused fine art, which draw on her long and successful career in the fashion industry. With a foundation in visual art and a degree in fashion design, Ellis co-founded a design consultancy where she designed womenswear for numerous luxury and high-end brands. This design discipline and aesthetic vision influences Anne-Marie's artworks; both in her colour palette and stylish subject matter. Her NHS work was displayed on billboards in London during the lockdown.”

Two original mixed media works on board by Liverpool-based Lisa Holmes are to be offered. Tiffany and Tom & Jerry Shopping are each estimated at £500-600. As Kevin Turton notes: “Lisa traditionally painted animal art but has now evolved it into Brand/Pop art with a fun twist. I love how brands and art can merge to create a fun and engaging narrative which allows us to see the world of designer brands in a much more humorous style.”

Elsewhere a watercolour Travellers Life by 20-year-old Norfolk-based artist Kieron Williamsom is estimated at £10,000-12,000 and is accompanied by a thank you letter from the artist.
