In 1906, the artist Alfred Munnings (1878-1959) painted this 16 x 12in (41 x 31cm) pencil and brown wash work of a young romantic couple. The work has not been seen publicly in over a century and is estimated at £12,000-15,000 in an East Anglian art sale held by Keys Fine Art Auctioneers in Aylsham, Norfolk, on October 27.
Labels to the verso state that it was exhibited by the Norwich Art Circle in May 1907, and includes a reference to Robert Burns’ 1795 poem O bonie was yon rosy brier.
A large archive of material relating to the Nuremberg Trials has been consigned to Toovey’s sale in West Sussex on October 31.
The material was collected by Leo Genn (1905-78), a barrister who worked with the British Army unit involved in the investigation and prosecution of Nazi war crimes. He became an assistant prosecutor at the Nuremberg Trials in 1945-46.
The archive comprises Genn’s original copies of the signed witness and prisoner statements, photos of the defendants, case files and other evidence. The majority focuses on the Belsen and Auschwitz concentration camps, including SS guard Irma Grese (1923-45) and the Nazi jurist and political theorist Carl Schmitt (1888-1985).
