Dolan's first timed auction puts Irish art in the frame

Purteen Harbour, Achill by Cecil Maguire at Dolan's.

Artists who are much admired and collected in Ireland feature at Dolan's first timed online auction which runs until January 25. 

There is a 1963 painting by Cecil Maguire of Purteen Harbour, Achill, which offers dramatic west coast views and is estimated at €6,000-€8,000. There is a similar estimate on Girls on a Beach in Pink and Blue by George Russell, redolent of easy relaxation during long summer days.
