The interest in Tessa Newcomb paintings has never actually subsided. Even her black and white prints regularly go for over £100 and her larger format acrylic on board paintings go for £2 – £3,000 at private galleries. This Tessa Newcomb original artwork is a great opportunity to invest in art that is only going to appreciate with age.
