Raymond Sheppard Auctions

I thought, as two very interesting pieces have come up for auction, I'd add a few pieces that are currently on sale. Although I do carefully list anything that comes up for auction for Frank Bellamy (on my other blog) but I haven't done the same for Sheppard as there are frequent appearances of many types of his artwork. I may add them as and when they turn up from now on...let's see.

The two colour pieces above (Tiger and Raccoon) appear to me to be for publication rather than the usual sketches, but I have no idea where!

The three colour pieces below all come from M. D. Hillyard (Mary Dorothea Maitland Hillyard) books published by Blackie and Son in the 1930s and 1940s about a family and their travels, predominantly in a caravan. I'll blog more on these books in due course
