As part of the Summer Fine Art Sale on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd July 2016, Tennants Auctioneers is pleased to be offering a strong furniture section, on day two of the auctions. The 175 lot section covers items ranging from a 17th century, Charles II oak refectory table, through to fine 19th century Florentine Pietra Dura table tops and Louis XV style tulipwood and ormolu mounted cabinets. Included in the impressive and varied line-up are four lots by furniture makers Varleys of Whitby, which we anticipate will command a lot of interest at auction, not just here in Yorkshire but across the country.
The popularity of prominent northern artists depicting industrial life in the North East is exemplified by the work of Norman Cornish (1919-2014). Cornish’s ability to translate human behaviour and interaction with a compassionate eye, and to give an insight into life in mining communities has made him one of our most important contemporary artists and a vital figure in the history of the North East. Tennants Auctioneers has a strong record of selling works by Norman Cornish, and we are excited to be able to launch this new exhibition in association with the Cornish Family and Beamish Museum.
