Sotheby's Scottish Pictures Monday 15th April

This sale of 19th and 20th century paintings is to take place near Edinburgh at Hopetoun House. One lot of particular interest is The Lotus Flower (pictured), of an unusual beauty and elegance, featuring two Japanese women with lotus blossoms, by Edward Atkinson Hornel (1864-1933). It was painted in 1894: the artist was heavily influenced by Japanese culture and travelled there in 1893 with George Henry, a fellow Glaswegian artist, where they painted geisha girls and other Japanese subjects. The Lotus Flower is expected to fetch £30,000 to £40,000 ($42,000 to $56,800).
