A rare work by celebrated international artist Andy Warhol will feature at the upcoming Gormleys Fine Art online auction on Tuesday, July 21 at 7.30pm. The featured piece by Warhol, called Cow (FS II.12A), is one of only approximately 100 signed copies of the 1979 screenprint, printed on wallpaper, and it will join the works of several well-known Irish artists in Gormley’s third online auction of the year.

This auction will also feature a number of works from leading Irish artists such as James Humbert Craig, Charles McAuley, Markey Robinson, and Neil Shawcross.

James Humbert Craig, born in Belfast in 1877, is still remembered as one of the most accomplished Irish artists of the last century almost 80 years after his death in 1944. His work emits an idyllic serenity with the landscape of rural Northern Ireland captured in all its romantic beauty, bathed in golden light. The auction on July 21 will feature The Loop, Cushendun, a stunning lakeside scene by Craig.

Charles McAuley, another renowned Antrim artist, will also be featured as his piece Potato Planting, which is a scene of rural farm labourers working in the fields. Reminiscent of the Impressionist painter Jean-François Millet’s 1857 work The Gleaners, which hangs in the Musee d’Orsay in Paris, the scene is an Irish take on an old French tradition, full of movement and expressive brushstrokes.

Four works by the ever-popular Kenneth Webb will also feature in the auction, and they will hope to emulate the success of several works by the renowned landscape painter in the previous auction held by Gormleys in June.

Gormleys have integrated a new Irish-made app, ArtVisualiser, across their website gormleysauctions.com which uses augmented reality to allow users to visualise a selected piece of artwork on a mobile phone or tablet.

“The app displays the art at the user’s location in real-time – allowing the user to view how the art will actually look in situ,” said Gerard Gormley.

“Potential buyers can browse and bid on the work of Irish and international artists from the comfort and safety of their own homes.”

Information and extensive images of the upcoming lots can be found at gormleyauctions.com and viewing of particular pieces in the auction can be arranged by appointment only.

Live bidding will take place online and over the phone from 7.30pm on July 21.
