Leicestershire, for centuries, has had country sporting pursuits at it’s very heart. With it’s rolling landscape, and impressive country houses hosting members of Royalty to partake in the Sports.
Little wonder that some of the most prominent artists whose careers relied and focused on country pursuits, have long standing associations with the County. This auction will look to celebrate this long associated parallel of Sport and Art, and give sellers and buyers an unique opportunity to reach new collectors and admirers in the context of the Leicestershire County Show which Gildings are proud to be supporting as Leicestershire’s leading Fine Art Auctioneers.
