Follower of El GrecoManner of El Greco, which had lain hidden in an attic, sold successfully for £98,000

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or so they say. We regularly come across paintings that are beautiful, or not, depending on your perspective, so when we value pictures we need not to let our own opinions cloud our judgement. We regularly hold specialist picture auctions with lots receiving enquiries and bids from around the world.

This combined with live internet bidding has resulted in some huge prices achieved, such as a small oil painting on a panel in the manner of El Greco of a Saint which came out of an attic. A real Antiques Roadshow discovery moment, it featured in our international trade paper and generated great pre-auction interest. On the day, a fierce bidding war got under way with the hammer falling to a London gallery at £98,000.

Another painting which sold very well, came out of a cottage where it had hung for many years. The owner had previously been advised by one of the large International auction houses at £20,000. Again, we featured the painting in our trade paper which drew in many dealers and collectors to the sale where the hammer came down at £61,000.

If you think you have a masterpiece hanging on your wall, whether you have inherited a watercolour, or if you have a pile of pictures hidden away in the attic, contact Richard Bromell or George Holtby at our salerooms 01935 812277 or send them images to info@charterhouse-auction.com

All of our auctions use live internet bidding platforms to ensure that every lot, whether it is worth £20 or £500,000, reaches the widest possible market and sells for the best price possible. In the run up to an auction we receive 100’s of emails requesting further information for lots in the sale. Attached to these email replies, we regularly send well over 1,000 digital images, such is the huge interest generated in our auctions.
