Artists for Bibi - an auction in aid of Arthur Machen's great-great-granddaughter

Arthur Machen's great-great-granddaughter Bibi (Beatriz) Farmer-Maia needs specialist medical treatment for a rare condition. 

Artist Tessa Farmer, Machen's great-granddaughter, has organised Artists for Bibi, an, auction of work by contemporary artists,  to help fund this.

The auction also includes a unique Machen association item, a painting presented to him by his fellow-actors in the Benson Company, 'David Garrick between Tragedy ad Comedy' (after Joshua Reynolds). The picture was on display in Arthur and his wife Purefoy's home for some years.

Please do take a look at the wonderful array of art available: the auction is until 23 June.
