The Auctions

 
 
 

Our inaugural event is The Sculpture Auction, taking place not at a showroom but at Aynhoe Park on the cusp of the Cotswolds on Thursday 5th October 2017, being the private home of James Perkins. We have chosen James’s home as it perfectly mirrors how we feel auctions should be – appearing entirely normal from the exterior yet once you step inside you are immersed in an entirely alternate experience. It beautifully stages each of the sculptures for every single one of our guests when they arrive for the previews on Wednesday 4th October and the sale day itself the following morning.

We are encouraging every artist to be creative in what they submit. The collection consists of rare, limited editions and one-off pieces, as well as commissions being offered too and below are a selection of the pieces each artist is presenting at the Auction. Our thinking is that if we give the artists an open book as to what they include, they can truly flex their creative muscles and step outside of perceived boundaries of what they should produce for sale.

The Auction will immerse every guest in the world of art and theatre, so far removed from the traditional concept of auctioneering that once the Butlers re-open the doors of Aynhoe Park at the conclusion of the day, they will know that they have been part of something truly extraordinary.

The investment potential is matched only by the beauty and significance of the sculpture presented.
