    The last two sales at rendells that i have attended have featured this watercolour and it has sold on both occasions, but i see that it is now again for auction at next weeks sale.I am sure that it was not listed as unsold on both previous auctions. Can anybody shed any light on this?Cheers

    It may well have been up for sale more times than that. It was at Rendells on 14 Oct 2005, lot 1595, estimate £2500, DNS. Next time in my list is Rendells 25 May 2007, lot 1923, est. £3000, but I don't have info on all Rendells sales. Which ones did you see it in?It's not the only work featuring again and again in Rendells sales. They have a rather peculiar attitude towards unsold works - the more you expose them, the better. In my experience, it works the other way round (just look at the Lenkiewicz falcons and his Venetian negress on eBay to confirm this).

    1st seen in sale early 2007 and if memory servers me correctly sold in the region of £4500 and again in march or april of 2007 when it reached in the region of £1500. At the Time I thought Someone has lost some money? But now its listed again? strange.cheers

    Dear gbl, you found the start of the thread. The watercolour as well as the thread is titled “The true source of Little Johns name”. The watercolour is aka “Study of a Man” , a Rendells euphemism
