Mystery surrounds the apparent withdrawal from sale of a Cornish painting by disgraced entertainer Rolf Harris. 

The painting, “Figures on the Beach,” depicts a tranquil cove in Cornwall. Limited edition prints are still on sale for nearly £700, but the original – which on Monday was advertised for nearly £1,200 – appears to have been withdrawn. 

Whitewall Galleries said it could not comment on the disappearance of the painting from its website. Harris is thought to have painted the scene early in his career, in the 1950s or 60s.

Harris  was found guilty of 12 counts of indecent assault against four victims between the 1960s and 80s. One of those abused by the 84-year-old was aged seven or eight at the time.
