WORK by popular Northern artist Helen Layfield Bradley is set to make top prices in the September sale at 1818 Auctioneers in Kendal.
The autumn catalogued auction of fine art and antiques includes a collection of paintings from the estate of a local collector.
The star item is likely to be a watercolour entitled April – Grandpa went to see a farmer at Fell Foot which was featured in her first book And Miss Carter wore Pink.
It is expected to fetch between £15,000 and £25,000.
The artist was born in 1900 at Lees, near Oldham, but was a frequent visitor to the Lake District.
She lived for part of her life at Lindale, near Grange.
One of the pictures on offer is an oil on board depicting the Cartmel valley in the evening with an estimate of £1,200 to £1,800.
There are two small paintings of the Lake District measuring 4in by 4in which are expected to fetch around £200 each.
Numerous prints and books are also included in the sale.
The artist exhibited at Abbot Hall Art Gallery in Kendal in 1970 and retrospectively in 1989.
