From Alex Katz to Andy Warhol: Gallery launches online fundraising sale with all profits donated to the NHS
The James Hyman Gallery is hosting an online fundraising sale of photographs, paintings and prints, with all profits donated to the National Health Service.
The NHS, currently at the midst of a crisis as all health workers valiantly tend to the thousands suffering from coronavirus, is desperately underfunded and overworked.
Now, in an attempt to help the cause financially, the James Hyman Gallery is selling work by artists such as Henry Moore, Bill Brandt, Andy Warhol, Eduardo Paolozzi and Marc Quinn and more with all profits being handed over to the NHS. The gallery has made work available to buy at reduced prices, ranging from £550 for an Alex Katz woodcut on paper to £22,000 for a Bill Brandt print.
As James Hyman’s wife, Dr. Claire Hyman, works as a surgeon for the NHS, James is looking to support NHS Hospital staff who are fighting Covid19 by providing funds for NHS Royal Free Hospital Covid19 appeal.
“As everyone pulls together at this time of crisis I have been thinking what I can do as an art dealer,” Dr. James Hyman, said. I do feel very helpless but want to do all I can to help. So the gallery has put together a selection of paintings, drawings, sculpture, prints and photographs, at reduced prices, and will donate all profits to the National Health Service.”
Dr. Claire Hyman, added: “As a surgeon working in the NHS, I know how tough it is for all the staff at the moment who are working incredibly long hours under immense pressure. James wanted to do something to help and this initiative as well as the generous support of collectors will be really appreciated.”
