Geraldine O'Brien, 1922 - 2014

Niall Dolan (Nov 2007): “I will always remember with fondness my visits to Geraldine O’Brien in her beloved Parteen, and my abiding memory will be her wonderful laugh and good humour, as we walked through the gardens and into her studio which she told me with glee, has always been called the ‘piggery’.? I stood in the studio with Geraldine’s dogs about our feet, and it was a privilege to be there.? It was like stepping back in time. Here was the studio of a real artist, with her easel and paints, and what looked like hundreds of brushes, and paintings all around us, work dating back over six decades to the 1940’s, most of which had been undisturbed for years and years. A veritable treasure-trove”.

    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.
