Private Tour of Sotheby's Irish Art Auction

News - Intro image
NetworkIrlande members were treated to a private tour of the recent Irish Art auction at Sotheby's Paris.

On the occasion of the recent Irish Art Auction at Sotheby's in Paris, NetworkIrlande members were kindly invited for a private tour of the collection on sale accompanied by a champagne reception. The sale included paintings, drawings and sculpture by Irish artists from the 19th century to the present day, led by Jack B. Yeats’ Come on the Dawn. British and UK Art expert for Sotheby's, Charlie Minter, talked guests through the collection and the various links and cultural connections between Ireland and France in the domain of the visual arts. Two of the artists were also present, Orla de Bri and Rowan Gillespie and members appreciated the opportunity to discuss their pieces directly with them. For those of you interested in following how the auction went and perhaps had their eye on any of the pieces, you can find the results of the auction online at sothebys.com.

Many thanks to all our members who attended and a particular thanks to Sotheby's Paris for offering us this opportunity to discover such a wonderful collection of Irish art in Paris.
