Arthur Armstrong RHA, 1924 - 1996

Born in Carrickfergus, Co. Antrim in 1924, his family moved to Belfast where Armstrong attended Queens University. After two years he departed and spent 6 months at Belfast College of Art evening classes, where he met Gerard Dillon, also becoming acquainted with George Campbell and Daniel O'Neill. In 1946, he became a professional artist, but only surviving with clerical jobs, and in 1950 an exhibition of his work was held at the Grafton Gallery in Dublin. His work was also exhibited in Belfast in a Group Show in 1951 and in a solo exhibition in 1956. Armstrong first exhibited at the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1962 and up until 1995, contributed a total of 74 works at the RHA, becoming a member in 1972. He also taught painting at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin. In 1981, a retrospective exhibition was organised by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, covering the years 1950 - 80, and in 1988 a studio sale of his work was held in Dublin.

    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.
