Children & the Arts is the only charity in the UK that delivers quality arts experiences to disadvantaged children through national programmes. By partnering arts venues with schools and children’s hospices to create sustainable programmes and experiences, they give those children who are at risk of being left behind, a more fulfilled, creative and exciting education, whilst raising their confidence, educational attainment and aspiration. All works included in this charity section of this online sale have very generously been donated in full by the artists or galleries.
The condition of lots can vary widely and the nature of the lots sold means that they are unlikely to be in a perfect condition. Lots are sold in the condition they are in at the time of sale.
All elements appear to be present. The butterfly wings are structurally sound. There are a few superficial hairline abrasions in places to the brass side of the elements only visible under raking light. It is our view that the work appears to be in very good condition.
For further images or more information of the present lot, please contact a member of the Post-War & Contemporary department. The condition of lots sold can vary widely due to factors such as age, previous damage, restoration, repair, and wear and tear. The nature of the lots sold means that they will rarely be in perfect condition. Lots are sold in the condition they are in at the time of sale.
