Champion Sale

Modern and contemporary art put in a strong performance in Tennants Auctioneers’ Autumn Fine Art Sale on 18th November, with works by Northern artists in particular attracting the interest of bidders.

Sculptures included an imposing bronze by one of Yorkshire’s most renowned animal sculptors, Sally Arnup (1930-2015). The bronze is a powerful and naturalistic depiction of the head of Morris, a champion Swaledale ram. Arnup is known for her life-like and tactile bronzes that capture the spirit of her subject, and her work is becoming increasingly recognised. Morris sold for £4,500.
