SIX ELOISE HARRIETT STANNARD WORKS FORM PART OF KEYS’ EAST ANGLIAN ART SALE
Six stunning still lives by Victorian artist Eloise Harriett Stannard will go under the hammer as part of Keys Auctioneers and Valuers East Anglian Sale in Norfolk on Friday 30th October.
The six works date from between 1858, when Stannard was 30, and 1890, and all feature her trademark fruit and flowers, depicted in luminous colours.
The Stannard pictures are part of a 197 lot sale which includes works by Norwich School artists John Sell Cotman and John Berney Crome, landscape painter Campbell Archibald Mellon, and 20th century artist Edward Seago.
The six Stannard works are:
- ‘Still life study of raspberries, peaches and white flowers on a marble ledge’, oil on canvas, estimate £4,500-£5,500
- ‘Still life study of flowers in a basket by a pair of Royal Doulton vases’, oil on canvas, estimate £4,000-£5,000
- ‘Still life study of mixed fruit, basket and bowl’, oil on canvas, estimate £3,000-£4,000
- ‘Still life study of raspberries in baskets with flowers’, oil on canvas, estimate £3,000-£4,000
- ‘Still life study of peaches and grapes, on Norwich silver salver’, oil on canvas, estimate £2,500-£3,500
- ‘Still life study of flowers and apple with Grecian urn on a marble ledge’, oil on panel, estimate £1,200-£1,500
Stannard remains very popular in the saleroom, as the works are very attractive, luminous and appealing,” said Keys director and head of fine art Kevin Lines.
“Although we often see individual works by her in our bi-annual East Anglian Art Sales, it is rare to have six such quality works in one sale, and we expect to see interest from both private collectors and dealers.”
Keys Auctioneers and Valuers East Anglian Art sale takes place on Friday 30th October on the auction house’s live online bidding platform KeysLive, and at www.the-saleroom.com. The full catalogue is available at bid.keysauctons.co.uk.
