On 27 May 2021, we have our Old Master, British and European Art auction. Featured in the auction, we are delighted to offer three works (Lots 242-244) depicting Lindisfarne Castle by British Artist Frederic, Lord Leighton, P.R.A. These paintings form part of the collection of Samuel Pepys Cockerell (1844-1921).
One of the most influential figures in Cockerell's life and career was his dear friend Frederic, Lord Leighton. These present lots were gifted from the artist to Samuel Pepys Cockerell and have subsequently passed by family descent to the present owner.
