LONDON.- Sotheby’s London sale of Scottish Pictures on Wednesday, 29 September, 2010, will bring to the market a superb selection of works spanning over a century, from the Glasgow Boys through the Scottish Colourists, to modern works by living artists. The 152 lots are expected to bring in the region of £2.4 million. Speaking about the sale, Michael Grist, Sotheby’s Scottish Pictures Specialist, comments: “Sotheby’s continuing dominance in the Scottish paintings market in recent years was confirmed in April this year, when we set a new auction record for an artwork by a Scottish Colourist, an achievement that is a testament to the quality and international appeal of these wonderful pictures. This season we have assembled a striking selection of works, not only by this group of artists, but others too, including the Glasgow Boys whose long overdue exposure has been boosted by the current retrospective exhibi
