    Collected 14 Mark Enslin originals in the 1980s when I traveled on business and lived in South Africa. They range in framed size from 78 inches wide by 50 inches high on canvas to 14 inches wide by 10 inches high on wood. All originals. All signed and dated. For scale, the top of the fireplace mantle is 76 inches wide. More detailed pics available.

    As the preference, to minimize the pain and logistics of selling individually, I would prefer to sell the collection as a whole. For me there's a couple of things to consider, I was offered $20000 for the collection by an art broker, "potentially more" if I gave them to him on consignment. While I took A LOT of grief at home for not taking the offer, I was put off by the idea that the deal was simply to generate $ for the broker and not for the enjoyment of them on display in a home, lodge, hotel etc. I'm not saying that money is not important, but there was that consideration. I have $20,000 invested in them, and have had 30 years of enjoyment - so they owe me nothing. So $20K plus shipping would take the lot.
