Swindon is about to get its taste of "affordable art" as Swindon's local auctioneers, Kidson-Trigg at Highworth, are holding an unusual auction on Tuesday. This 300 lot picture auction is a dispersal sale of C20th, Traditional, Modern and Contemporary Art from Jarvis Hotels Ltd.

The Hotel group, many of which are local to the Swindon area, have purchased pictues over the last 15 years or so, mainly from London Auction Houses to furnish their portfolio of Hotels, and this consignment is now surplus to requirements. Pippa Kidson-Trigg, Auctioneer, comments," It is a genuine dispersal sale, everything has to sell, so pictures have inviting estimate prices, and we hope it will provide purchasers with the opportunity to enjoy and invest in affordable art amongst the infamous names of today's Contemporary artists such as Gerald Laing, (one of the original wave of pop artists), Clive Barker (one of the leading British Pop artists) and Sir Terry Frost RA (One of Britains most succesful C20th artists)".
