Fr Martin Haigh's PaintingsRead more ...
We are thrilled to share that, with the permission of the monastic community, we are auctioning a select few of Fr Martin Haigh’s greatest works. All proceeds will go towards supporting the monastic community of Ampleforth through the Ampleforth Abbey Trust (registered charity number 1026493).
Curated with the help of the monastic community, this year's collection features a handpicked selection of 25 paintings which reflect Fr Martin's abiding passion and experimentation with different painting techniques and styles. Furthermore, for the first time ever, the auction will run completely online, making it easier than ever to purchase one of these prized paintings.
This year's auction will go live at 12:00pm on Wednesday, 22nd July, and will close at 5:00pm on Friday, 31st July.
Each piece will be sold as seen. Successful purchasers will be asked to collect their artwork from Ampleforth. However, couriers can be arranged by the buyer if preferable, the cost of which will be paid by the buyer.
Please note that copyright for the artwork will remain with the Ampleforth Abbey Trust and the Trust retains the right to withdraw any of the artwork from sale before the auction closes.Close.
