Portrait Up For Auction

A rare chalk and Pencil portrait belonging to a William Gibbons client will go for Auction at the famous Irish Auction House Adams in Dublin on April the 30th. The rare portrait is of Sir Roger Casement by Yorkshire Artist Sir William Rothenstein (born in Bradford) who became president of the Royal Academy. Rothenstein was notable for his sketches of famous people.

Sir Roger Casement was hanged for treason in Pentonville Prison in 1916 for landing arms for the Irish Rebellion from a German Submarine. The portrait will be of particular interest to Irish Patriots and fans of Rothensteins work. Please contact Kieran O'Boyle at Adams for further details.
