ThursdayA watercolour with charcoal and pencil of two Circus Ponies which yet could only have been done by Laura Knight. The estimate is ten to fifteen thousand pounds but it must have been a fairly normal price once because its original purchaser sounds reassuringly ordinary: Mrs Rogers, 10 Cervantes Court, Green Lane, Northwood, not someone who would spend thousands and thousands. Lovely to think of it sitting snugly on a wall in Northwood.
