LONDON.- Bonhams announces the launch of Blazing a Trail: Modern British Women to be held in New Bond Street, London on Wednesday 29 September. It is part of a series of innovative sales at Bonhams during 2021 which have already included Ecole de Paris, The Mind’s Eye: the Surrealist sale, Picassomania and The Male Form.

The cross-category sale will be curated by Bonhams Director of Modern British and Irish Art, Christopher Dawson, who said: “The idea behind Blazing a Trail is to shine a light on the outstanding female artists of the 20th century, too many of whom remain overlooked and undervalued. The sale will include significant artworks by both established and lesser-known names to give a clearer picture of the century and the pioneering women who shaped some of its major movements, as well as those blazing a trail for the future.”

Works already consigned include:

• Fisherman by Prunella Clough (1919-1999). This newly discovered work was probably painted between 1946 and 1951 when Clough made frequent visits to Southwold, on the Suffolk coast, where her parents had acquired a second home. It was here that her fascination with depicting fishermen began and many of her finest pictures from this period are of this subject. Estimate: £20,000-30,000.

• These Feelings Were True by Tracey Emin (b 1963). The complete set of eight lithographs, 2020, five printed in blue and black, three printed in black, on Somerset Velvet Warm White paper. Estimate: £40,000-60,000.

• Revision of January 10 by Bridget Riley (b 1931). Estimate: £50,000-80,000.

• White Tulips by Anne Redpath (1895-1965). Estimate: £20,000-30,000.

• Picking Flowers by Dorothea Sharp (1874-1955). Estimate: £20,000-30,000.

• Giraffe by Kendra Haste (b 1971). Estimate: £30,000-50,000.

• Opportunity by Evelyn Dunbar (1906-1960).This newly discovered work is a reminder of the talents of an artist whose early death and innate modesty contributed to a neglect of her achievements. Estimate: £5,000-8.000.

• Portrait of Miss Harold Taylor by Doris Zinkeisen (1898-1991) Signed and dated 1933. Estimate: £3,000-5,000.
