» Listings for June 2013

  1. Welcome to guest artist Alice Maw who will be exhibiting some of her acrylic works on Ranchi Art & Antiquarian Books' website and offering them for sale through the Shop.

    Alice is a Contemporary working artist based in Scarborough North Yorkshire who offers a wide range of interesting works which I'm sure will be of interest to visitors to this website. Please access her works through the Contemporary Acrylic Category in the Shop from where you can link to her guest artist's page.

    Please watch the page as more of Alice's works are put on display.

    Ranchi Art & Antiquarian Books wishes Alice the very best for her association with this site.

    Any questions to Alice or regarding her work can be addressed through this Blog or the Contact Us page.

  2. Note that the recent offering by Canterbury Auction Galleries of watercolour described as "Shoulder length portrait of the artist's wife Amy, 15" x 11" in ebonised frame and glazed" did not reach the reserve. I feel that the estimate of £400-£600 was a bit too high and probably dampened interest. The painting was a very similar study to my Mediterranean Maiden which can be viewed on this link although from a slightly different angle and both are signed G. Barbaro. Be interesting to see whether this one is re-offered.
