We are delighted that the Patron of our Friends group, Maggi Hambling has generously donated a painting from her celebrated 'North Sea' series. The painting will be auctioned through this website and the proceeds from its sale will go towards supporting the House
Maggi said 'I am a passionate lover of the House, for it is where, as a child, I first encountered great art. Since November 2002, the North Sea waves off our Suffolk coast have been my constant subject. I hope this painting may bring good fortune to a House full of inspiration.'
Bidding for Summer Wave ended at midnight on 12 July 2012. The winning bid was £3,500.
