Even so, no one painted the West Cork landscape like Crozier, who was born in Scotland but became an Irish citizen in 1973 and lived near Roaringwater Bay from the mid-1980s until his death in 2011 Collums field (Fallen Tree) (Lot 11: approx. € 6,000 to € 9,000) was sold for € 11,000 at de Vere’s Irish art auction, which ended on March 30th.
