22-09-2012 : IS AN OIL PAINTING BOUGHT AT LOCAL AUCTION A LOST TURNER

An oil painting bought at a golf club auction for just over three and half thousand pounds is believed to be a long lost work by famous painter JMW Turner worth up to 20 million pounds.

Art insurers Hiscox are said to have put the multi million pound valuation on the masterpiece, entitled Fishing Boats in a Stiff Breeze.

Mr Weal came across the 13in by 10in painting at the auction in Wealden, Kent in 2004 where amazingly it was even catalogued as a Turner, even though it had a reserve price of just 700 to 900 pounds.

The record price for a Turner work is over 27 million pounds when Modern Rome Campo Vaccino was sold in 2010.

If you love paintings then surprisingly there are a number of works of art to be found on the canal system.

If you book a Canal Boat Holiday from Alvechurch Marina you can cruise the Coventry Canal and follow the amazing art trail.

Coventry has a five and a half mile long outdoor art gallery which runs alongside the canal making it Britains longest waterside art gallery.

Sixth form students from Hansworth have joined forces with the C and R T and HSBC to brighten up the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal.

There are a host of art galleries to visit in Britain and a Canal Boat Holiday gives you and your family an opportunity to visit them.

London is home to many galleries including The Tate Modern and Tate Britain, Saatchi Gallery, The Hayward and The National Gallery and can be reached from Aldermaston Marina.
