Lightness of Being by Chris Levine

Modern British art is having quite a moment right now and to celebrate Sotheby’s has put together an auction featuring some of the finest talents to come out of the British Isles over the last century. Lots start at £400 for tentative collectors but the real highlights come from names including L.S. Lowry, Barbara Hepworth, Banksy and Julian Opie. Patriotic British yacht owners (or art collectors with an eye for the iconic) can’t go far wrong with Chris Levine’s portrait of Queen Elizabeth II entitled Lightness of Being.
