David Lay is privileged to have known some of the great British sculptors and artists of the St Ives school. At Lay’s we have sold some of their finest works. David’s extensive knowledge enabled him to immediately spot this gem of a work by John Wells hidden in a cupboard whilst doing a routine probate valuation. We sold it for £26,000.
We also sold a small maquette for a much larger work by Dame Barbara Hepworth for £60,000.
