Video of the Week: 'Greatest collection of 20th Century British Art ever to auction'

As we've reported, an auction at Sotheby's in London this week features works by some of the most famous artists Britain has ever seen, including Lucian Freud, Stanley Spencer, Patrick Heron and Henry Moore.

The pieces were collected by Wilfred Evill between 1925 and 1960. They have rarely been seen in public since a memorial exhibition for the late Evill at Brighton City Art Gallery in 1965.

Stanley Spencer's stunning 1935 painting Workmen In The House has been earmarked as the top lot, with a guide value of £1.5m-2.5m ($2.4m-4m). The sale is expected to make in excess of £12m ($19.5m) in total.
