Modern Art Under the Hammer

A large painting by Dorset based Fernando Velazquez is going under Charterhouse hammer in their 18th & 19th October two day auction.

“As auctioneers, we sell a broad range of items from ancient Greek coins through to modern art such as this beautiful painting.” Commented Richard Bromell. “We have had the pleasure of selling several works by Fernando over the past few years and they always generate interest from private collectors.”

Fernando Velazquez was brought up in a small village outside Seville. He moved to London in 1996 and spent several years working from a studio in Hackney. Over the decades he has exhibited at numerous galleries and exhibitions in Venice, Berlin, Madrid, Barcelona, New York, Los Angeles, Jersey, London, Bath and Bristol.
