Nevinson watercolour at fine art sale in Yorkshire

06 March 2014Written by Alex Capon

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.

Tel: 01969 623780.
