Summers Place Auctions is pleased to announce the sale of an exceptional private collection of Contemporary British sculpture on 26th September 2023.
The 72 lots include small sculptures for the home as well as monumental sculptures. All of the sculptures depict animals and are by such well-known sculptors as Geoffrey Dashwood (born 1947), Mark Coreth (born 1958), Nic Fiddian-Green (born 1963), Dylan Lewis (born 1964) and Hamish Mackie (born 1973).
Inspired by the landscape of their country home, the collectors took a keen interest in Contemporary wildlife sculpture. They patronised the leading British sculptors with their own inimitable style, but also started collecting some of the lesser known, up-and-coming artists like Adam Binder, Julieanne Worrall Hood, Sophie Dickens and Michael Simpson.
Other items included in this sale are period sculptures by Blanchard and Coade, not forgetting a rare cast lead figure of a cupid and swan by John van Nost the Elder.
