An Original Chris Ofili
Just imagine owning an original sketch by Turner prize-winning artist, Chris Ofili!
Ofili – who has work on permanent exhibit at Tate Modern – is known for his work with elephants and this signed doodle, sketched while a student at the Royal College of Art prior to his meteoric rise in the art world, is a drawing of a miniature elephant. This previously unknown early work may not fetch the £1.8 million that was paid for his Turner Prize exhibit in 1998 … but who knows?
This genuinely unique Lot also includes a beautifully-presented limited edition print from a watercolour, charcoal and pastel drawing for Ofili’s large painting – Study for Ovid-Windfall – which was exhibited at the National Gallery earlier this year.  The moonlit image is saturated with the intense colours of the artist’s Trinidadian home – a visual delight.

Original 1976 Logan’s run Shooting Script belonging to Jenny Agutter
Everything is perfect in the 23rd Century there’s just one catch …..
Logan’s Run a major sci-fi film made by MGM and released in the summer of 1976
Starring Michael York, Jenny Agutter and Peter Ustinov
The film won the Oscar for visual effects 1977
This leather bound version of the original script inserted with 16, 8×10 colour stills from the classic sci-fi film was given to Ms Agutter, on completion of filming, by the producers.  It is a unique piece which has remained in her possession since the 70′s.
“This is very much a collector’s piece” says Ms Agutter. “The film is about hedonistic society who were not allowed to live beyond 30years. 1Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a hereditary life shortening condition, those living with it are constantly fighting to have a full life.  I hope by selling this rather special script it will raise money towards research and care, making it possible for those with CF to have a long healthy life.”
