THE countdown is on ahead of this year’s Incognito art sale in aid of the Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation, a novel initiative that has raised north of €1 million since it was developed in 2017.

Recognised as the largest online art sale in Ireland, the annual sale sees original postcard-size artworks offered by new and internationally acclaimed artists, illustrators and designers.

Everything is sold online for €65. However, the identity of the artist is only revealed after the piece has been received. Among the superstars to have taken part in the past have been Bob Geldof, Bruce and Pattie Springsteen, Bono, The Edge and Ronnie Wood, while high-profile artists have included Robert Ballagh, Tracey Emin, Helen Steele, Ruthie Ashenhurst, Abigail O’Brien and Maser, to name but a few.

From an equine perspective, one of the bright young artists involved in the 2024 sale is Anna Skelton from Ashbourne, Co Meath. An architecture student who enjoys creating art, both painting and drawing, she has been involved with the world of horses from a young age, and this is what inspires much of her artwork.

Incognito is the brainchild of Lucinda Hall, and this year’s sale will be launched on Thursday, April 4th. On that day, thousands of artworks by hundreds of artists will go on show and buyers will have three weeks to peruse and pick their favourite pieces before the sale goes live on Wednesday, April 24th.
