Markey Robinson, 1918 - 1999A primitive painter, a colourful character, a man of great complexity - these are all descriptions which have been used to describe Markey Robinson over the years. Born in Belfast in 1918; Markey Robinson is regarded as one of the great Northern Masters. In a sixty year career, Markey’s unique and vibrant paintings fully demonstrate his genius for composition. His signature style and his range of themes are readily identifiable - rural landscapes, women in shawls and sad looking clowns. His work has been seen far & wide, as far back as 1956, Markey exhibited work at the Salon des Independants in Paris and he is represented in many public and private collections around the globe. Art Historian, Susan Stairs in her biography on Markey probably summed him up best when she said of him, ‘there is a genius in our midst’.

Enter your Maximum Bid, i.e. the highest amount you’re 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 buyer’s 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.
