Auction Value Pitfalls

“Auctions can eat up 50% of the value” 

Many of our clients are looking to avoid the high cost of selling at auction and so find selling to our specialist gallery a more favourable option.

William Edward Greengrass  [1892-1970] – Biography 

He was born in 1892 in Hertfordshire and went on to study at the Grosvenor School of Modern Art in London under the linocut artist Claude Flight.

Greengrass, after originally producing wood engravings moved on to linocuts where his subjects were based on dynamic movement of sporting events and the human form.

At one time he was employed by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London as an assistant keeper.

His linocut ‘The First Fence’ was illustrated in Claude Flight’s, book of ‘Lino Cutting and Printing’ in 1934.

William Greengrass exhibited at the Redfern Gallery in London in linocut exhibitions with other Grosvenor school artists.

How did Greengrass sign his works?

Signs work :’W.E.Greengrass’

Did he work in other media?

He worked mostly in linocut and wood engraving.

Where did he Sell?

He sold direct, at art dealers and exhibitions and we have also seen London gallery labels and provenance from auction houses.

Some linocut and wood engraving print titles we are looking for include Low tide, Tea under umbrellas, Hurdlers, House breakers, Christmas, Windmills and Balloons and Rugby.
