This picture by CRW Nevinson (1889-1946) is being offered at the Spring Fine Art Sale being held by Tennants in Leyburn, North Yorkshire on March 28-29.
The 9.75 x 14in (25 x 36cm) signed watercolour Eel Boats,
Dinan comes from an important private collection and is not
thought to have been on the market since it was last exhibited at
the Leicester Galleries in 1947. Indeed, it was almost certainly
originally exhibited at the same dealership in October 1928 where
it was likely displayed alongside Nevinson's watercolour Dinan
from the Viaduct which shows a view of the same town in
Brittany but in the opposite direction.
Here, the main focus was on the arches of the viaduct as well as
the boat masts and bridge with figures in the centre.
It is estimated at £6000-8000.
The same sale will also feature works by other 20th
century British artists including Edward Seago and LS Lowry.
