2. Watercolours by the painter John Cyril Harrison (1898-1985) have made in excess of £10,000 but most remain largely affordable on the secondary market. This typical 9 x 12½in (22 x 32cm) watercolour sold on January 11 at Tennants of Leyburn in North Yorkshire where it was guided at £600-800.

3. Henry Frederick Lucas Lucas (1848-1943) was a prolific painter of equestrian scenes, particularly in and around the Rugby area where he moved to in his early 30s.
