Forgotten Modern Master to be Auctioned by Christie's A work by Sir Claude Francis Barry is being offered by Christie's on the 15th of February which I would urge any art collector or investor to consider purchasing
News-Antique.com - Dec 11,2010 - Described by Simon de Burton in the Financial Times as "a contender for the title of greatest artist you've ever heard of” – Sir Claude Francis Barry, the overlooked British Modern master, is about to receive the recognition he deserves with a retrospective exhibition to be held at the Royal Museum of Cornwall from the 15th of February 2011. A work by Sir Claude Francis Barry is being offered by Christie's on the 15th of December which I would urge any art collector or investor to consider purchasing. This may be the last chance to acquire a Barry painting before prices go up as a result of the upcoming retrospective.
