King Charles becomes first monarch to have art sold at auction

Written by: | Posted on: | Category:

King Charles has become the first British monarch whose artwork has sold at auction, fetching nearly £5,800 at Bonhams.

The print is from an original painting that the king created at Balmoral Castle in Aberdeenshire in 2001. King Charles had 100 prints made from the artwork; the one sold through Bonhams’ Scottish Home Sale last Thursday was the 18th print in the collection, was signed ‘Charles 2001’ and came with a certificate of authenticity.

“We were quite flabbergasted to see the level of interest in this. We’ve had interest from all over the globe,” said Bonhams managing director May Matthews in a statement, noting that the King’s other prints usually sell for around £400 to £600.
