  1. Barbaro Market Scenes (Pair)

    Posted on

    Giovani Barbaro (Italian, fl 1890-1907). Pair of framed watercolours. Bustling Arabian market scenes. Signed, 30cm x 75cm.

    Paul Beighton's 23rd August, sold within estimate (£160.00 net). A good pair. Somewhat disappointing result probably due to current Mid-East situation which will inevitably affect the prices of Orientalist works - good time for buyers with long term views though. Another side of the coin is that with the extent of destruction these works will increase in historical value.

  2. Amy Barbaro watercolours sold.

    Posted on

    The pair of Orientalist watercolours depicting Egyptian Street Scenes sold at the Pyramid Society auction in the US for $12,000.00 which was a very good price and has certainly put Amy Barbaro onto the International Art scene. The question now is are there any more of her signed works out there - this sale has set a precedent. 

    Here are images of the two watercolours (by kind permission of The Pyramid Society) :
