Canadian Art


DECEMBER 5 - 10

Our final Canadian Art auction of 2020 again demonstrates Waddington’s ability to find the best works from private collections that are fresh to market.

This auction presents the opportunity to bid on an impressive selection of works from the Painters Eleven, including two works by Walter Yarwood that have been in the same collection for decades, as well as a large and striking Alexandra Luke acquired directly from the artist’s family, available at auction for the first time. George Pepper’s Ottawa River Boathouses is a superb example of the artist’s work, and in excellent condition – a rare, high-quality find also making its debut at auction.

Rounding out the auction is a selection of sculpture and other estate gems, including a large canvas by Peter Clapham Sheppard, and two striking winter scenes by Stanley Francis Turner.
