Sothebys to sell RCA secret postcard by Gillian Carnegie

An RCA secret postcard by Gillian Carnegie will be auctioned on 13 February 2013 by Sothebys in London. The card featured in RCA secret 1997 and is a classic early painting by Carnegie, a former student of the college, who was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2005. The estimate on this card is £5000 to £7000. A lot of money for something that cost £30 at the time but well worth it in my view. Click here to view the lot.

In other news the college have said the deadline for artists to return their finished cards to the college is valentines day, 14 February 2013. How romantic. The college will doubtless get more anonymous cards on that day than Johnny Depp.

Finally some early contributor news. Anita Klein (2011 card pictured) revealed to her twitter followers that she has again donated 3 cards to the sale. Anita supports the sale every year with beautiful cards. This year is clearly no exception.
