Artist's Resale Right ("Droit de Suite"). Artist's Resale Right Regulations 2006 apply to this lot, the buyer agrees to pay us an amount equal to the resale royalty provided for in those Regulations, and we undertake to the buyer to pay such amount to the artist's collection agent.

Lot Essay

Central to Jewels' work is her strong sense of Cornish identity. The hills, beaches and houses around her home of Newlyn were a constant source of inspiration and the honest clarity of her works strives to convey her connection to the land and its inhabitants.
