Marine Pictures

Sales of Maritime paintings and Works of Art have been part of the auction calendar at Bonhams for over 30 years.

Traditional 19th century seascapes, ship portraits and topographical views make up this strong category and international marketing ensures the highest possible prices.

Modern and contemporary works are also popular; in particular we are seeing outstanding prices for works by Montague Dawson, John Steven Dews, Stephen Renard and Henry Scott.

We are proud to be market leaders in this field with world record prices for John Steven Dews, £169,250 (inc buyer's premium), and Derek George Montague Gardner, £61,250 (inc buyer's premium), in September 2012 in Knightsbridge.
