PAINTINGS: Woolley and Wallis hold four quarterly auctions of oil paintings, watercolours, prints and miniatures, ranging from the 16th to 21st Centuries. We sell studio collections as well as single works of art, and offer free sale valuations at our Castle Street salerooms. This year has seen our record-breaking paintings sale in the summer with the sale of a painting by Cornelis Springer for £160,000 and a portrait by George Romney for £130,000. The sale total of £570,000 was the highest total for a picture sale ever at Woolley and Wallis.
