Early Tennis Painting
It can't possibly have escaped your notice that we're in Week Two of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships and that today Andy Murray takes on Feliciano Lopez in the quarter-finals. So what better time for Bonhams to promote its London auction of a Lucas Gassel oil painting depicting a Renaissance palace with a game of tennis being played (detail shown)? Its estimated value is £70,000 to £100,000, a lot less than Wimbledon prize money. Click the title link to view the full painting and to read about the early history of tennis.
Good luck, Andy.
