Once again, we are exhibiting at the prestigious 20/21 British Art Fair at The Royal College of Art 9-13 September (stand 33a) Some pictures, never shown before, will enliven our stand.
They represent the same criteria as before, full of expression, wonderful colours and of course, good composition. Among this is a very early work by Anthony Whishaw RA, which has been hanging in my home for numerous years as well as a later work which was part of a series called Las Meninas. He used a restricted palette for both.
Another painting, never exhibited by the Boundary Gallery, by Timothy Hyman, RA entitled Dr Faustus at the Fortune Theatre, shows his passion for the theatre . It was exhibited at the Nottingham Castle Museum in 1987.
Our featured artist for this Newsletter is ALBERT LOUDEN with new body of work. This well known Outsider artist ‘s works feature in museums dedicated to Outsider Art (Lausanne in Switzerland and Bègle in France among others). The term Outsider Art is the English equivalent of Art Brut in France and describes art created outside the official art scene, including self taught artist such as Louden who never went to art school. His output is truly original, interesting and challenging.
We are also displaying top quality works by Mark Gertler. As you probably know, in a recent auction of Edgar Astaire’s collection at Christies, his paintings / drawings were sold at record prices that are a testament of their real worth.
This work was executed following a visit to Paris
when he was greatly inspired by Picasso.
We are bringing some works of Olga Lehmann (1912 – 2001) on the 75th anniversary of the Blitz (that started on 7th September 1940 and lasted 57 days).
She featured the difficult times (with the permission of the War Office) but also the happier ones during this period. Her vibrant watercolours of Christmas and New Year’s Eve celebrations in underground stations and other types of shelters indicate the spirit of that period of adversity. The Imperial War Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum hold several of her works.
It’s is worth mentioning that the primary school next to a bombsite in St John’s Wood painted by Olga Lehmann will hang in their new exhibition space this autumn. It was wonderful to discover this location
As you can see, there are exciting new works as well as established top quality paintings and drawings.
We really look forward to seeing you.
