The picture department is at Carter House, 6-10 Salt Lane, Salisbury, SP1 1EE


The department holds four annual international auctions of oil paintings, watercolours, prints, miniatures and sculpture, ranging from the 16th to 21st Centuries.  In June and December we hold specialist Modern British and 20th Century Art sales including prints, watercolours, oils and sculpture.  In September and March we hold specialist Old Masters, British and European Paintings sales including fine miniatures, prints and paintings.  We can sell studio collections and private collections as well as single works of art, and offer free sale valuations at our Salt Lane offices or we are happy to discuss items and give advice. 

A department highlight was the sale of a hunting scene by Sir Alfred Munnings KCVO, PRA, in 2014 which sold for £200,000 and recent highlights include sales of a painting by Allan Ramsay (£21,000) and three works by Russian artist Richard Karlovich Zommer (£20,000, £25,000 and £37,000)
