Staithes Group work sells at sec­ond try

Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Objects Of Desire -

DAME Laura Knight’s evoca­tive paint­ing Pack­ing Fish on the Quay at Staithes has found a buyer at the sec­ond time of ask­ing. The Staithes Group artist’s 1899 oil, sub­ject of a lead item in this col­umn, failed to reach its re­serve when it was of­fered at Christie’s, South Kens­ing­ton, in March with an es­ti­mate of £15,000-£20,000 but sold for £13,750 when of­fered at the lat­est Vic­to­rian and Bri­tish Im­pres­sion­ist Art sale.

HIGH HOPES: This Ital­ian ebony cabi­net could fetch £30,000 at Ten­nants’.
