Sporting Art, Wildlife and Dogs WEDNESDAY 25 APRIL 2018, 10am

As a nation of animal lovers, it is no surprise that paintings of animals have long been a very popular area of collecting for the British Public. Be that pictures of our own domestic animals, or scenes that echo our nostalgia for the English Countryside and traditional sporting pursuits, we have adorned our houses with them for centuries.

Sworders' first specialist auction of Sporting Art, Wildlife and Dogs will be conducted on Wednesday 25 April 2018. The sale will encompass oil paintings, watercolours, prints and sculptures from the 17th Century to the present day. The different categories within the sale ensure a varied content, from traditional 18th and 19th Century hunting and equestrian subjects, to racing pictures, ornithological and wildlife art, also including paintings of dogs. For collectors it provides an eclectic mix of styles, genres and price points from the mid hundreds upwards in a variety of mediums to suit any home including work by the finest animal artists of the present day.
