Kray painting for auction tomorrow.

Seven paintings by Ronnie Kray dating back to the early 1970s are to be auctioned by Mander Auctioneers of Clare, near Sudbury, UK on 26th July. The paintings were produced while the notorious gangland leader was in jail on the Isle of Wight.

James Mander, of Mander Auctioneers, said: “These paintings are part of an important piece of modern social history. I am particularly pleased to have these for our next auction, since the opportunity to see this many examples in close proximity enables us to really begin to get a feel for their work, which can be very dark at times. Having such good provenance and being fresh to the market is also an important aspect of this small collection.”
