On 18 February 2015, paintings by Deaconess Phoebe Willetts will be auctioned on the second day of a Fine Art Sale in Colchester, by Reeman Dansie. The sale will span fifty years from her time as a student at Birmingham Art School and the Royal Academy in the 1930s, through to her death in 1978. Half of the net proceeds will go to the Coalition to Stop the Use of Child Soldiers.
The early work includes life studies, still life and portraits. The later work is primarily in a unique style of figurative symbolism on peace and religious questions. The major paintings will be sold individually and others are in combined lots.
