A very healthy art auction

One charity auction that has caught our eye is the PiH Contemporaries sale which took place at Bonhams, Knightsbridge, on 28 May. PiH stands for Paintings in Hospitals, an important charity that places works in UK healthcare facilities. All of the participating artists, from Catherine Yass to Ben Rivers and Maggi Hambling, have agreed to donate 100% of the sale price to the good cause. Over 2,000 artists are represented in the PiH collection including Gillian Ayres, Ian Davenport and John Hoyland. Above, Jonathan Huxley's appropriately titled Plink Plonk Fizz, 2011
