Chadwick Bronze Lion II roars to £7,200
6th September 2018
Clevedon Salerooms September Specialist Sale saw yet again an increase in the number of internet bidders, proving that the formula of careful cataloguing, professional photography with multiple images and a condition report are key for bidders and what differentiates Salerooms.
A Lynn Chadwick (1914-2003) bronze lion II conceived and cast in 1986 in an edition of 9, with a provenance of being gifted to the Vendor direct from the artist was eagerly fought over. The 21cm long bronze realised £7,200. The geometric lines and stance of the lion with its open snout bearing a resemblance to field artillery. The king of the jungle roaring on the battle field?
Lots to look forward to.
