Read 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.

When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
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.
For example:
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.
