Works by two fa­mous Nor­folk painters have been sold by Bon­hams in Lon­don. The Yacht Basin, Os­tend, by Ed­ward Seago went for £18,812 in­clud­ing. pre­mium. The lot came with books and a news­pa­per clip­ping. ‘Last week Mr. H.T. Per­ci­val as­sisted Mr. Ed­ward Seago with Capricorn across to the Hook... and thus three boats from Horn­ing are cruis­ing Dutch wa­ter­ways this week... Broad­land is well rep­re­sented across the wa­ter’.

Sir Al­fred Mun­ning’s The Wood­cut­ter sold for £60,062 in­clud­ing pre­mium. It was a favourite of Mun­nings, as he says in his au­to­bi­og­ra­phy: ‘The last of these five of 1903 is The Wood-cutter – the best. It is au­tumn; old Nor­man is in his smock, clear­ing a small maple-wood thicket. I en­joyed my work when do­ing this. The scene was there; the old man posed well for hours; the yel­low-starred leaves traced pat­terns in the Oc­to­ber sun. How beau­ti­ful it looked!’
