FIRST TIME ON THE MARKET FOR FINE JOAN GILLCHREST PAINTING

A fine unseen painting by one of the great artists of the St Ives School from the 1960s, is to be sold in Plymouth.

From the 1950’s Joan Gillchrest  painted the hard life of Cornwall's rugged Penwith peninsula, with its fisher folk at sea in all weathers, alongside farmers and holidaymakers. Her naïve style of art has become very popular.

Now collectors have the opportunity to bid on a fine painting of Mousehole. The owner is the granddaughter of the artist and the painting has never been seen on the market before.

Measuring 73cm x 43cm, it comes up for auction 28th September with a guide price of £6,000 to £8,000.
