EDINBURGH.- Local specialists from international fine art auction house Bonhams will be on hand in Edinburgh on Thursday 6th March and Glasgow on Thursday 13th March to offer expert advice and complementary valuation services. With expertise in Old Masters, 19th Century and Modern paintings and prints, the specialists look forward to discovering what kind of appealing pictures they might find.

Masterpiece Month is a series of picture valuation days that will be held throughout Bonhams regional network. Bonhams specialists will be available at the above locations, on the aforementioned dates, to offer free and confidential auction valuations; where appropriate, home visits can also be arranged.

Bonhams have held a number of valuation days in Scotland over the years, and the results speak for themselves: A painting by Sir Alfred Munnings, ‘The Fair’, found at a valuation day in Scotland, sold at our 19th Century European, Victorian & British Impressionist Art sale on January 22nd for £182,500; Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s ‘Les oliviers de Cagnes’, also sourced in Scotland, is estimated to sell for £250,000-350,000 at our Impressionist sale in June.

Bonhams is one of the leading auction houses in the world with over 57 specialist departments and a team of world-renowned experts who offer confidential advice on all aspects of buying and selling art at auction. We have had great success in sourcing material in Scotland in the past, and we hope that it will continue as we look forward to offering our services in Edinburgh and Glasgow in March.
