D COMO’D’Y (2001) Etching 26.5 x 22.5 cm (10.43 x 8.86 in) 16 of 16
Barry Flanagan’s etchings are included in a benefit auction supporting Bedales School, an independent boarding school in Hampshire. The three works, Composition with Salamander (2010), Reading (2010) and D COMO’D’Y, (2001) have been donated as part of the event. The Bedales school’s ethos is to nurture enquiry and individually in its students and the auction hopes to raise funds for new facilities including a new art studio, a design workshop and to provide a full Arts Scholarship for talented students in their final years. Flanagan’s son and daughter studied at Bedales and Flanagan was a keen supporter, with previous artworks donated to the school such as the sculpture [Field Day 1 Mirrored, 1988].
The auction ends at 10pm on 25th November 2014 more information on how to support can be found on the Paddle8 website.
