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.
