As we sit here, metaphorically pacing the room in anticipation of the election results, I shall distract us with images of rich British men and hunters! This 19th c. beauty - "The Squire and the Gamekeeper" - is attributed to James Lobley and is expected to fetch GBP 20,000-30,000 at Sotheby's London on Nov. 19. Proceeds from the sale of the Sir David and Lady Scott collection go to benefit the Finnis Scott Foundation.
Please fix the economy and bring me a painting featuring a turnip, an Oriental rug and a shot gun. I'll never ask for anything again.
With warmest affection,
The Very Very Good Hollister
