Landscapes and Luftwaffe raids lead de Vere’s latest sale
Sharply contrasting works by Paul Henry and Colin Middleton are sure to drum up plenty of interest
Surrealism leads at de Vere’s sale next week with Paysage des Rêves Mauvais, Colin Middleton’s prescient fantasy nightmare, 46×61cm (€50,000-€70,000). From the collection of George and Maura McClelland, it dates from 1940 when Germany had invaded France, prompting fears that Belfast could be the next Luftwaffe target. The following April, four bombing raids devastated the city.
