Dadd watercolour – £200 on eBay

03 February 2014Written by ATG Reporter

A British collector has reportedly bought a watercolour, ‘A lady with a Minstrel’ from 1874, by the Victorian artist Richard Dadd on eBay for £200.

Oils by Dadd, noted for his highly detailed pictures of fairies and Eastern landscapes as well as for mental illness and the consequent killing of his father, can command hundreds of thousands of pounds at auction.

This work was in a scrapbook.
