Cecil Maguire RUA, 1930 - 2020

Cecil Maguire was born in Lurgan in 1930 and graduated from Queen’s University Belfast in 1951. Following a career as Senior English Master in Lurgan College, Maguire retired in 1981 to concentrate on painting full time. In 1967 he became an associate of the Royal Ulster Academy and began exhibiting at the RHA in 1971. Cecil Maguire now lives and works for a great part of the year in Roundstone, Co. Galway, where he feels very much at home in an area which has always been the inspiration for much of his work - an area of tranquility and ever changing landscape. His work is part of many public, private and major national collections including The National Self Portrait Collection and The Ulster Museum, and The United Nations Headquarters, New York.

    Thereafter in increments of €2,500

    Enter your Maximum Bid, i.e. the highest amount youre willing to bid for a particular lot in the auction. The system will automatically raise your bid, only as much as is needed, for you to remain the highest bidder and only up to your chosen Maximum Bid, which does not include the buyers commission (VAT Inclusive) payable on all lots.

    Please note that all Maximum Bids are confidential and are not disclosed. The system will endeavour to purchase your lot at the lowest hammer price, as is permitted by other bids or reserves, if any, and subject to the Terms and Conditions of Sale, and the auctioneer disclaims responsibility for any failure, for whatever reason, in this regard.

    The system will advance your bid automatically, on your behalf, only when required, up to the maximum you have chosen. This means that you may win an item for less than your maximum bid, but it also means that you can be outbid if someone else enters a higher Maximum Bid. If you are outbid for a lot, an email will be sent to you to notify you and to invite you to increase your Maximum Bid. Please note, if a bid is received in the final minute of a timed auction, the clock resets back to sixty seconds, in order to give other bidders an opportunity to respond.
