TANTALLON CASTLE (year unknown)
A work by Thomas M. M. Hemy that was sold by Lyon & Turnbull, of Edinburgh, at an auction held on Jul. 12, 2007. A signed watercolour. 28 x 45.5 cm. in size. Sold to a bidder on the auction floor. As per a now long expired e-Bay 'liveauctions' listing.
Just one bid it would seem - for GBP 200.
BELL ROCK (year unknown)
This listing may well prove to be quite incorrect. We do know that a work by Thomas M. M. Hemy of this name was sold by Richardson & Smith on Apr. 12, 2001. An oil on canvas of 62.5 x 74.7 cm in size, as reported years ago by Artprice (or maybe 63.5 x 74.7 cm). Signed. It sold for GBP 1,100. (Thanks to Antiques Bulletin!)
What I did not have was an image. But lo and behold, sitting in my files for a great many years, unrecognised but identified as 'Hemy' is the image that follows. I have no idea where it came from all those years ago. I think that it may be 'Bell Rock'. But is it? Can anybody clarify?
Now Bell Rock is most famous for its ancient lighthouse, located 12 miles off the coast of Angus, Scotland. We know Thomas was familiar with the area since one of his works showed a sailing ship passing that lighthouse. Here. I cannot find, via an image search, any images that match the image below.
