The 4ft 6in x 3ft 4in (1.37 x 1.01m) signed oil on canvas entitled Mother Love was consigned from a private source for whom the auctioneers have also carried out probate work.

In an original gilt frame, it is a comparitively large work by the founder of the Newlyn School and has not appeared at auction in the last 25 years.

It shows a Newlyn fisherman's cottage interior with a grandmother, mother and child seated to the foreground beside a table.

Estimate: £70,000-90,000.
