Painting sells for double its valuation.

A PAINTING by the Liverpool-born artist Tom Edwin Mostyn almost doubled its estimated price at a sale of Victorian & British Impressionist Art held at Christie's London.

The colourful work, called Fete Champetre, sold for pounds 11,875, against its original estimate of pounds 6,000-8,000.

The painting, described as "a romantic vision of Spring", went to an anonymous buyer.

Mostyn was born in Liverpool and trained at the Manchester Academy of Fine Arts.

A spokeswoman for Christie's said the sale was "a very good result against its original estimate."

A total of 90 paintings and works on paper were included in the sale with the top lot being The Derby Day, by William Powell Frith, which achieved pounds 505,250
