A rare painting by Dundee artist James McIntosh Patrick has sold at auction for £15,000 to a local collector.

It was one of 11 of the painter’s works which went under the hammer at Curr and Dewar’s auction house in the city, along with a much sought-after copy of Alexander Crawford Lamb’s Dundee book.

The lots formed a treasure trove of Dundee-orientated items, which also included a carved wooden panel depicting General Monck, the 1st Duke of Albermarle, as he sacked Dundee in 1651.

The Lamb’s Dundee, one of only 16 in existence and printed on Japanese style paper, had been expected to sell for £1,000 and fetched more than twice that sum.

Steven Dewar, auctioneer and valuer, said: “The Lamb’s Dundee actually went for £2,300.

“We had some people who took a fancy to it and they both kept bidding. We are really chuffed about the price.

“The carved wood panel went for £120 which was about mid pre-sale estimate.

“We had 11 paintings and, although three did not sell, one of an Angus scene went for £15,000.

“Three of the watercolours went for £3,000, £3,200 and £2,000.

“We were really pleased with the result.”

Mr Dewar said the last Lamb’s Dundee sold 14-years ago when it fetched £1,200.

The book contains large lithographs of buildings and streets and an 18th Century map of the city.

James McIntosh Patrick was a Scottish painter who was based in Dundee for much of his life.

He is well known for his paintings of the city and wider Tayside.

The rare pieces were put up for auction by a collector in Fife and another in Dundee and were bought by Tayside collectors.
