A spokeswoman for Sworders said: "Like many others throughout the world, Sworders are deeply concerned by the conflict that is developing in Ukraine.

"Sworders will be offering nine paintings by contemporary Ukrainian artists, many of whom were born, studied and still live in the areas of the country that have been most affected by the war.

"To show support for them and for all of the people of Ukraine, Sworders will donate all profit from the sale of these works to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal, which will provide food, water, shelter and healthcare to refugees and displaced families."
