Posted On 07/02/2023
“Island”, a series of 13 unique one off rugs or wall hangings designed by some of Ireland's best known artists and designers, was auctioned by Whyte’s last Sunday, 5 February. Each piece was hand tufted by Ceadogán Rugmakers at their studio in South East Wexford. Whyte’s conducted the timed on-line sale free of charge in order to maximise the proceeds for The McVerry Trust and For The Birds. The total hammer price for the 13 works was €156,000, and every one sold.
The highest price achieved was for Seán Scully’s Wall Fez which made €85,000. Other notable results were for works by Dorothy Cross at €19,000, Alice Fitzgerald at €9,500 and Gottfried Helnwein at €9,000
