This autumn we were due to hold a solo show for one of our most exciting young contemporary artists Valeria Duca. In spring this year she travelled to her native Moldova, to witness at first hand the wave of Ukrainian families that had sought sanctuary there in an effort to escape the Russian onslaught. Deeply effected by her experiences, Valeria felt driven to paint a series of works in response. We will be auctioning the resulting seven canvases over the next few weeks to raise money for Médecins Sans Frontières, a charity working tirelessly to change lives for the better across the region.
Please do watch Valeria’s short film describing her motivations and her experiences with the Ukrainian refugees in Moldova:
The collection of seven paintings will be offered through an online timed auction and all works will be available to view on request at our Pall Mall gallery until the close of the auction. Seventy Five per cent of the total selling price of each painting will be donated to MSF.

Bidding is now open. To place a bid, please click here to register for an account.
Setting up an account is a straight forward process through the auction website and requires the usual registration details.
You will then be able to access your 'Client Zone' and complete the verification steps which are required for bidding. This is a very quick process which involves submitting your address and verifying your phone number and a card. There is normally an administration sign up fee of £3.99, but we are waiving it for the first hundred registrations.
