1. When Arthur Douglas Peppercorn’s (1847-1924) studio burnt down, taking with it over 100 paintings, the London-born landscape artist, then aged 70, feverishly attempted to recreate his life’s work. This undated 7 x 17in (17 x 44cm) oil on canvas may have been among those he recreated. It sold within estimate at Paul Beighton Auctioneers in South Yorkshire on September 1.
2. Knocked down within estimate in Lincolnshire at Batemans on September 1, this 2ft 4in x 2ft 3in (70 x 69cm) landscape is by Tinus De Jongh (1885-1942). Described as one of South Africa’s most popular painters, the self-taught artist began his career as a decorator in the Netherlands before pursuing painting.
3. The Austrian Alps provided Engelbert Lap (1886-1970) with plenty of inspiration for his woodblocks. This 8 x 10½in (21 x 27cm) example, Winter Sunshine, sold above estimate at Fieldings Auctioneers in the West Midlands on September 1.
