Austin Osman Spare Evaluated On…Antiques Roadshow!?

According to Lashtal Paul’s FB feed of April 16:

“Austin Osman Spare’s ‘Self Janus Combined’ was featured on BBC’s Antiques Roadshow this evening, with assessment by art expert Rupert Maas. Reference made to Spare’s brief relationship with ‘warlock and very nasty piece of work’ Aleister Crowley. Maas notes that AOS ‘loses out in the market these days’ as a result of all the ‘frankly kooky stuff.’ However, he has a ‘devoted group of followers among which I would number myself.’ Valuation of £4,000 to £6,000 which seems a little low, based on recent performance.”
