Within Mitchells quarterly Antiques & Fine Art Sale there’s always a wide and varied selection of traditional and modern art, to suit all tastes, styles and pocket. Given our location between the coast and fells the picture department consistently boasts a good selection of maritime and Lake District scenes. Local artists such as Edward H Thompson and Sheila Fell remain ever popular with buyers located throughout the UK.
Mitchells’ specialists have the ability to identify and value works of differing styles and periods, combined with attentive preparation and professional marketing have led to some exceptional results. We recently sold an oil painting of a frigate by Whitehaven born artist Robert Salmon (1775 – 1858) for £79,000 to an American collector bidding from Boston.
