A top price for Frederick Richard Pickersgill

In July 2019 Christies in London held the auction British & European Art: Victorian, Pre-Raphaelite & British Impressionist Art, which included the work Britomart unarming by Frederick Richard Pickersgill. The »bidding war« ended at GBP 75,000.00 (€ 82,345.01), 25% above the upper estimate. With this result, Britomart unarming is even the most expensive work of art by Frederick Richard Pickersgill that we have observed at auctions so far.
