Art TibetRead more ...
Art plays a vital role in Tibetan culture, and has long been a powerful tool for social change. So it seems fitting that to commemorate 60 years of our work artists have so generously donated their art to support Tibet Relief Fund.
This is the first of two Art Tibet auctions showcasing artwork from a diverse pool of established and emerging artists including Tenzing Rigdol, Lydia Corbett, Alan Cotton and Simon Pearsall.
We are also delighted to include an exquisite etching of Potala Palace by Jean-Pierre Burkhalter. This piece was donated by Joanna Lumley and is extra special as the etching is from a photograph taken by Joanna’s grandfather Colonel Leslie Weir in 1930.
This auction really is a unique and exciting opportunity for you to buy a special piece while also funding our work with Tibetan communities.
Art Tibet will run from 10th to 24th September, so plenty of time to bid. The second auction will follow later this year.
Items do not include postage/delivery. Once the auction has ended we will contact you to arrange the most suitable and convenient delivery method.
Happy bidding, and good luck!
PS If you miss out this time, don’t worry - a second, bigger Art Tibet auction is coming later in the year with a special piece by Antony Gormley. Sign up for our emails to stay informed: www.tibetrelieffund.co.uk
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
