This page represents the known major work of the artist Desmond Jones.

 

Valuations
The valuations have been made by the artist's daughter, following discussions with professional artists and valuers, comparing the artwork of Desmond Jones with his contemporaries currently on the market and considering his importance as a professional artist historically. The suggested values are given as a guide, since the paintings which were sold by Desmond were private commissions, the family do not know what he sold them for and the true value of his work is as yet untested on the market, which is very exciting!

 

Special Auction & Exhibition in 2017
Many of the Desmond Jones collection of paintings are to be auctioned at a very special event in Richmond in 2017.
Please refer to the Auction page for details of the auction event. There is also going to be a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the art at a pre auction Exhibition.
                     A large number of charities local to Richmond Borough, where Desmond trained at Art College, have been approached to see if they would like to earmark one of his works to receive a % of funds from the amount raised for that work at the auction. The paintings which have been earmarked by a charity are marked with a
CYAN block in the "For sale?" column of the catalogue below. There is a "Lot No" table next to the "Cat No" for each artwork, which refers to in what position it will be sold at the auction.
