Property from the Remarkable Collection of Antoinette and Patrick Murphy

Launch Slideshow

In September’s Made In Britain Sotheby's is delighted to be offering a selection of works from the collection of Patrick and Antoinette Murphy.

As a brewer for Guinness, Patrick travelled all over the world – from London and Paris, Tokyo and New York to Ghana and Malaysia – acquiring artworks wherever possible, whilst Antoinette set up the Peppercannister Gallery in Dublin. Patrick also served as a Chairman for the Arts Council Committee in Ireland, advising on purchases which still hang in many State premises. In his role, which saw him meeting and getting to know many of the leading artists of the period, Patrick helped establish the seminal ROSC art exhibitions, seismic events that introduced international artists including works by Pablo Picasso, Roy Lichtenstein and Mark Rothko to many Irish audiences for the first time.

Here we take a closer look at some of the highlights from the collection.
