Removed from Portland Place, London

Collection of Richard Thomas Shannon (1931-2022) to feature in our February Fine Art auction.


R. T. Shannon was an academic and historian and a leading authority on William Ewart Gladstone. He was born in Fiji and studied at The University of Auckland, completing a PhD at Gonville and Caius, Cambridge. He taught Modern History at Auckland and The University of East Anglia and was appointed Professor of Modern History at The University of Wales in 1979.



His eclectic collection of furniture, pictures  and works of art embodies a deep-rooted understanding and passion for history and politics. Many of the present lots were acquired from London Auction Houses and antiques shops and all were beautifully presented in his central London residence a short walk from Regents Park. The collection will be sold in our forthcoming Fine Art and Antiques sale on the 14th and 15th February.
