A highlight from yesterday’s Fine Art sale was this impressive portrait which once hung in historic Littlecote House, Hungerford. William Leybourne, the subject of this work, was born in 1773 and soon after joining the Royal Navy he died in service in 1790 at the age of 19. The portrait captures the young man in his naval uniform with a fleet of ships in the distance. Attributed to Mather Brown (American 1761-1831), ‘Portrait of William Leyborne’, Oil on canvas | Sold for £15,000 (incl. buyer’s premium) #dreweatts #donningtonpriory #fineart #fineauction #worksofart #oiloncanvas #matherbrown #americanartist #littlecotehouse #hungerford #finepainting #oilpainting

Our Fine Art auction tomorrow features five works by the popular artist Jack Vettriano (Scottish b. 1951).Vettriano draws the viewer in through his use of an underlying narrative. Vettriano admitted, ‘I live in a world of heartbreak…I just seem to be more creative when I am in some kind of emotional distress’, and his works are consistently characterised by strong visceral emotions: love, jealousy, betrayal, attraction, elation and, occasionally, sheer joy. Rather like a compelling romantic novel his audience is offered the glimpse of a world driven by human passions. Pictured here is ‘Valentine Rose’, Oil on canvas | Est. £15,000-20,000 (+fees) #dreweatts #donningtonpriory #fineart #fineauction #oiloncanvas #worksofart #vettriano #jackvettriano #scottishartist

This striking oil on canvas, ‘Still life with lemons and wool’, by Oscar Ghiglia (Italian 1876-1945) dates from 1909. The forms in Ghiglia’s still lifes are solid, with very little textural or flickering brushwork and clean, strong colours. He was active at the same time as various influential post-Impressionist artists, such as Cézanne, Gaugin and Seurat yet he maintained his own distinctive style. Our Fine Art auction goes on view this Sunday at Donnington Priory | 2 December | 10am-2pm #dreweatts #donningtonpriory #fineart #fineauction #italianartist #stilllife #oscarghiglia #worksofart #oiloncanvas
