Auctions of fine English and Continental paintings are held three times a year.
Decorative paintings, prints and miniatures of lesser value are included in our monthly sales of Antiques.
Over the last few years, Brightwells have concentrated on raising the profile of their picture auctions. They are marketed widely on the internet and regularly attract overseas buyers from the USA, Australia and Europe.
There have been many other highlights in recent years which include £48,000 for an Irish landscape by Paul Henry, £47,000 for a rare mezzotint by Christopher Nevinson ARW, £22,000 for Paul Sandby’s watercolour of the Old Welsh Bridge, £24,000 for a scene on the River Medway by William Lionel Wyllie and £42,000 for a work by Dorothea Sharpe.
