Frank Egginton RCA, 1908 - 1990

Born in 1908, Frank Egginton is the son of Wycliffe Egginton 1875-1951 and the uncle of Robert Egginton. Frank first visited Co Donegal in 1930 and exhibited in the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1932 and the Royal Scottish Academy from 1936. During the second World War, he worked in Mackiesí Foundry in Belfast which was converted to produce military aircraft. In 1952, he held a joint exhibition with Howard Knee at the Victor Waddington Galleries, Dublin. An outstanding watercolour artist, Frank occasionally worked in oils, but watercolour was his true strength and always his first choice. His father, Wycliffe, was a member of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and he too was a very fine watercolourist. Frank lived much of his life in Dunfanaghy, Co Donegal and died in 1990.

    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.
