A collection of maritime paintings by modern-day Cornish artist Terry Bailey is going under the hammer at Dorset auction house Charterhouse.
Auctioneer Richard Bromell commented on the pictures, “They come from a Somerset deceased estate, and were collected over a number of years by a retired Royal Navy Fleet Arm officer who had a huge love of the sea and sailing ships.”
Terry Bailey is best known for his paintings of yachting scenes, both historical and contemporary. Born in Manchester in 1941 he moved to the West Country in 1970.
He has won numerous awards, appeared in many magazines and his pictures are for sale not only in the UK but also in America.
Included in the collection of pictures by Terry Bailey there are watercolour drawings titled Deliverance off St Mawes, August Sailing off St Mawes, and Off Carrick Nath Point St Mawes, which are estimated to sell from £200 to £600.
The sale of pictures, books, maps and antiques takes place on July 27.
