Gareth Harris has been in touch with a brief update on the Procktor murals from Langan’s Brasserie (the murals are currently in storage, having been removed from the restaurant). He has written the following update for The Art Newspaper:

“More news on Patrick Procktor’s striking views of Venice painted across the walls of the upstairs room at Langan’s Brasserie off Piccadilly in London. The newly restored murals were unveiled late 2012 but we heard earlier this year that the sweeping panorama of La Serenissima is to be sold at Christie’s, a move which enflamed the late UK artist’s devotees including the London-based artist Alessandro Raho. The Art Newspaper understands that the murals may initially be offered privately to institutions and collectors (the auction house apparently hopes that the work can remain complete). Watch this space.”
