Works of art by internationally-recognised contemporary artists are set to go under the hammer in Surrey next month.
With works from the likes of Andy Warhol, Sir Peter Blake and Fabian Perez all for sale, the auction house said it is expecting “great interest from art lovers and collectors all over the country, and internationally.”
A signed oil by Argentinian artist Fabian Perez, a study for Man At The Red Sign, has a pre-sale guide of between £3,000 and £5,000. Perez’s father ran a number of illegal nightclubs and brothels, and Perez grew up surrounded by women.
