It will be interesting to see the market reaction to these pieces.

Here are a few more "modern pieces" by Bob that I obtained from Su on a SOR basis a few years ago and sold.

An interesting sale. The old style pieces sold quite well with few unsolds. One  of the very big ones went for £1500 and 2 more for £1000 or more. The rest of the old style went mostly within estimates.
            Different for the more modern style ones like Studio illustrates above. A fair number of unsold, with most of the rest going at the low range of the estimates. The Robert Washington figure studies sold well.

the widow could have sold it to me directly for more money but she rolled the dice in auction

hi Dantheman, I viewed your 'pearl diver' piece in Sworders and i think it was the best of the plaques, very Hockney like, Sworders give a date as mid 80's for this piece.

I'm sure he was influenced by the Hockney swimming pool,

I have mixed feelings about the worthiness of the later potted Washington pieces in my collection , as Philpot rightly pointed out these pots are out of their time frame, i have two pieces very similar and while they are excellently potted and decorated they don't seem right for their date somehow, it's like having a pot with a crack ,no matter how much you try to hide it grates every time you look at it.Robert Johnson Washington  - Page 2 P1060010

I think if it was displayed with Staite Murray + his pupils pieces then it would be fine but I know what you mean.
