Chiswick Auctions is proud to announce an Artist’s Studio Sale of the works of James Arnold Martin 1931 – 2015, taking place on Wednesday 9th March.

All proceeds to benefit the British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK and all lots to be sold without reserve! 

We have been fortunate to have assisted with several distinctive artist studio sales over the last 20 years. By their very nature an artist’s studio sale is a unique and special event, and a moment to understand the innermost life and work of an artist. Some of the most innovative art pottery and paintings of the 20th Century came out of the studios of independent artists. They created unique, one of a kind pieces for nothing more than their own pleasure and enjoyment.

This collection includes pottery items alongside sketches, watercolours, paintings and sculptures by James Arnold Martin, and presents us with a most extraordinary previously unseen body of work.  His artistic output was various and prodigious and includes many wonderful works including topographic and architectural subjects.

All of the paintings, ceramics, drawings and ephemera being offered are from the Balham home and studio of James Arnold Martin, and at his request are being sold to benefit the British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK (British Diabetic Association) and without reserve.

Both sales will be available to view on Monday 7th 10am – 6pm and before the sales starts on Tuesday and Wednesday respectively. This is a chance to come and take a closer look at the collection in full.

Last week, we held a successful sale of 20th Century and Contemporary Art & Design. This HANS WEGNER for AP STOLEN, DENMARK, a 1950's model AP19 'Papa Bear' arm-chair and footstool sold for £6,000 incl Buyer’s Premium. The next sale of this kind will be taking place on Tuesday 3rd May. If you have any items to sell, please contact james@chiswickauctions.co.uk
