As per my post in May the artist Beryl Cook sadly passed away.

On July 2nd 2008, Bonhams of London held an auction of British artwork and the Beryl Cook Originals for sale broke the previous world record amount for her work!

‘Granny with her Pet Mouse’ by Beryl Cook:

‘Granny with her Pet Mouse’ has set the new record and sold for a whooping £69,600 Sterling.

And another original: ‘Dolphin’ reached £66,000. Bare in mind the previous record was £28,800 that is quite unbelievable. It means all her Originals, Limited Edition artwork, including lithographs and silkscreens, will now be even more of an excellent investment for her collectors.

Many feel Beryl Cook, before she died, was Britain’s most popular artist and the most instantly recognisable in the UK, I suspect this will remain the same for many years to come.
