The picture auction held at 1818, ending 29th May, showed that traditional paintings, be they watercolour or oil paintings, are still very much in favour.
Leading the way was Lot 409, a watercolour, from the hand of W G Collingwood, of the Coniston Fells, selling at £980, a good price as the last Collingwood offered, sold in the low hundreds.
The traditional painter Arthur Tucker was also in demand with several selling at good prices, as shown.
In total contrast, Lot 460, three Japanese prints sold well at £100.
