Viewing at 35 Kildare Street, Dublin, Monday 13th – Thursday 23rd July.
“The cover picture is a powerful oil, ‘Double Window’ by Sean Scully, probably Irelands greatest International heavyweight artist. This is the first major work by Scully to come to auction in Ireland and sets the tone for the rest of the sale. We limited entries to include only the very best and there is a watermark of quality running throughout the catalogue.

Viewing will be from 35 Kildare Street as normal, but we have doubled the length of viewing time to 10 days, so that numbers can be managed, and every viewer accommodated. There won’t be a live auction, all the bidding will be conducted online through the deVeres platform. Bidding is now open, closing on Thursday 23rd July. Lot 1 will close at 7pm, 2 at 7.01, 3 at 7.02 etc. It’s a very efficient system, with all bids kept confidential to the individual client. We will also have telephone bidding available for the auction, should clients prefer.” (Rory Guthrie, Director)

Join Auctioneers John de Vere White and Rory Guthrie, in conversation with Dr. Frances Ruane, as they discuss the auction highlights and reveal some of the stories behind the paintings and artists, including Sean Scully, Louis le Brocquy, Jack B Yeats, Tony O’Malley and others.
