Judging by the number of viewing and condition requests at the recent Lincoln Fine Art Auction, it was clear that potential buyers had focused in on five lots.

Edward Hersey (born 1948) is a well respected artist, represented and shown in many galleries. His works are influenced by the British landscape and country farm buildings. A typical example offered at the auction, titled Wuthering Heights Haworth, West Yorkshire, attracted multiple bids eventually selling for £1,600.

Henry H Parker (1858-1930) is another traditional landscape artist. He studied at The St Martin’s School of Art, London. The picture offered at auction detailed a view of Doeford Bridge, Clitheroe. It had been consigned by a local collector and benefitted from a provenace label, to a London gallery. It saw the hammer fall at £1,000.

From the same period was a view of Moel Siabod from The Bryncoch by the Cambridge artist David Bates (1840-1921) which sold for £850. As well as his landscape works, the artist painted porcelain at the Royal Worcester works, specialising in floral subjects.

Nottinghamshire artist William Eddowes Turner (1820-1885) is best known as an animal painter. Racehorse Pepper Box in a stable aside a pug dog attracted a number of bids, passing the winning post at £600.

Finally an 18th-century Italian School painting on panel depicting a study of five ladies, each in thoughtful pose, left no one in any doubt with a bidder making their mind up to bid £850.
