Ronnie Wood artworks on offer at Chiswick Auctions

A pair of artworks by Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood will be amongst the highlights of an upcoming Chiswick Auctions sale.
The two works will be offered next month, in an auction of 20th Century and Contemporary Art and Design.

In addition to his music career, Ronnie Wood has long been renowned as an artist in his own right, exhibiting his work around the world and holding retrospectives at both the Modern Art Museum in Sao Paulo and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Fans will have the chance to bid on his 2006 canvas Spanish Minstrel, and the mixed-media work Head and Shoulders, each valued at £3,000-£5,000.

Topping the auction is a work by British artist Sacha Jafri, whose artworks have been bought by the likes of President Obama, Bill Clinton, Bob Geldof and Leonardo DiCaprio. His 2006 work Strolling Along the Banks of the Seine, numbered Artist Proof 2/6, comes with an estimate of £6,000-£8,000.

Other notable artists featured in the sale include Howard Hodgkin, Stuart Semple, Paul Henry, Takashi Murakami, Charles Morris Young, Gerald Laingn and Markey Robinson.
Along with contemporary artworks, the auction offers a selection of 20th century design pieces, ranging from a set of circa 1910 Tiffany Studios candlesticks to a modern Knoll Studio Tulip dining set by Eero Saarinen. Also up for grabs are mid-century modern chairs, Art Deco bronzes statues, ceramics, art glass and even vintage posters.

The Chiswick Auctions 20th Century and Contemporary Art and Design sale takes place on Tuesday March 3.
