LONDON.- The annual two-day East Anglian auction held in November at Bonhams made £327,849.

The works of Sir Alfred Munnings, a leading light of the Newlyn School, also proved popular. A pencil self-portrait made £6,900, an early oil of a chestnut horse was sold for £20,000, and a watercolor of cattle grazing before hay wagons, £13,750.

A collection of unframed illustrations by Vogue artist and concentration camp survivor, Brian Stonehouse, offered as six separate lots, made four times their combined estimates to fetch £36,650.

An oil of a river scene with Norwich castle in the distance, painted by Norwich and Suffolk School artist, John Berney Ladbrooke, made £12,500, while a collection of works by John Moore of Ipswich, including a pair of Walberswick scenes, all found buyers.

Bonhams Regional Director for East Anglia, Michael Steel, commented: 'We had several good pictures by key artists in the sale, and it is very satisfying to see the figures achieved. There is definitely a place in the market for East Anglian art, and this sale offers both buyers and sellers a unique opportunity to take advantage of that.'
