Online mid-Summer Auction includes collection of Dr. Harry Blake

[Some highlights at the end of this post]

We are delighted to have been favoured with the Collection of Dr. Harry Blake, which will form part of our online mid-Summer sale to take place on Sunday, 14th June 2020.

Dr. Blake was a renowned anaesthesiologist who in the 1950s and ’60s lived and worked in Bahrain, where he was involved in the setting up and running of their first blood bank. During his time living there he built a collection, which included some very fine Persian rugs, fine art & furniture

Following on from the success of our first Live Online Auction in March and the subsequent timed auctions we have held in April, we plan to start the Summer auction season off with our second ‘Live Online Auction’ which will take place via 3 online bidding platforms The-Saleroom, EasyLive Auctions & Invaluable, and for those that cannot bid online we are accepting absentee bids and telephone bids.

The challenges that the restriction on movement have brought to our small family run business in West Cork have thought us how well we as a team can adapt to changing circumstances. We are no doubt lucky to be involved in an industry that fits in so well to the world of online business but we are also very aware that without the continued support of our bidders it would not have been possible to adapt and continue to do business during these challenging times.

We hope that our regular bidders & new bidders join us at 3pm on Sunday June 14th, if not to bid then to just sit and relax and find some distraction from the everyday by looking at some very fine art & antiques.

The catalogue will be available to view online from June 10th via our website www.hegartyantiques.com, through our online bidding platform on www.the-saleroom.com, www.easyliveauctions.com & www.invaluable.com

For bidders who do not feel comfortable bidding live online, they can as always call ahead and book a telephone line or leave an absentee bid with the auctioneer. We can also walk you through the process of registering if you call us ahead of time.

He studied at the Krakow School of Fine Arts, The Munich Academy and also in Paris at the renowned École des Beaux-Arts.

In the years between 1895 & 1902 he lived mainly in Berlin, working for Emperor Wilhelm II. He traveled a lot, spending time in Spain & Egypt. In his later years he traveled as far as the United States, where he completed portrait commissions.
