The picture auction at 1818, ending 26th June, saw results across the board.

The top sellers included traditional 19th century watercolours and oil paintings, perhaps indicative of increased interest and a return to favour of classic pictures. 1818 always has a good selection of these at prices to suit all pockets.

On the opposite spectrum, lot 1464, a 20th century stylised unsigned print, saw interest to sell at £50.

Popular as ever were the works of Alfred Wainwright, with lots 1476 and 1477, prints selling well at £75 for two, boding well for some Wainwright originals available for bidding in the auction currently online, ending on the 10th July.
