IF YOU HAVE a spare few grand burning a hole in your pocket, think of heading to Cork this evening. Morgan O’Sullivan’s auction house is hosting a large fine art auction at the Radisson Blu hotel in the city with works by Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst and a number of eminent Irish artists up for grabs.

Andy Warhol’s Speedskater print can be yours for anywhere between €10,000-€15,000 (or, at least, that’s the starting estimate), but you could bag a bargain with two other works of his looking to go for between the €5,000 to €7,500 range. Fans of the Brit art movement might go dotty for Damien Hirst’s Lepidine (€4,000-€5,500) or Cephalothin”(€6,000-€8,000), part of his spot prints and paintings period.

The good news is that, as well as a number of highly-prized works from the likes of Mark O’Neill, Gerard Dillon and Markey Robinson, there are also works tagged with an estimate of around €200.

See the full catalogue of the nearly 300 works going to auction at 6.30pm this evening (and even place an online bid if you fancy) at the Morgan O’Driscoll website>

Us? We’re thinking of pooling our cents in TheJournal.ie office for Graham Knuttel’s ‘Bank Robbers’ depicting some shady-looking suits sidling away from a burning bank building. Hmmm…
