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.

    The painting, entitled “Sodalis”, is a large work measuring 155 x 145 cm which was painted during 2002-2003 and is estimated at £400-600.

    The painting comes to Charterhouse from a Dorset Manor house where modern art was mixed in with traditional furnishings. A move abroad for the owner and a lack of wall space has resulted in the painting coming to auction.

    Charterhouse are now accepting further entries into this huge two day October auction which has specialist sections of pictures, sporting items with hunting, shooting and fishing, books and Beswick.

    Please contact Richard Bromell and the team of other specialists at Charterhouse, The Long Street Salerooms, Sherborne 01935 812277 or via email to arrange a home visit.
