1 Heywood Hardy ARWS RP RE RWA

1842 - 1933

Stepping Out

Signed

Oil on Canvas

24 x 18 ins / 61 x 45.7 cms

Heywood Hardy was a painter and etcher of animals, portraits, genre and sporting subjects.

He was born in Chichester, on 25th November, 1842, son of the artist James Hardy, Sr. (1801-

1879) and younger brother of James Hardy, Jr. (1832-1889).

After a short time with the 7th Somerset Volunteers, Hardy borrowed some money from his

brother and travelled to Paris. In 1864 he entered the Beaux Arts to study under the battle

artist, Pielse.

He returned to England in 1868 and found his work was in great demand. He was often

invited to country estates to paint portraits, sporting pictures and animal studies. Hardy

continued to enjoy commissions for portraits, animal studies and hunting scenes, but he

decided to concentrate on painting genre subjects.

From about 1870 his career flourished and he was elected a member of a number of societies

including The Royal Society of Painters and Etchers, The Royal Institute of Oil Painters and

The Royal Society of Portrait Painters. He exhibited 46 paintings at the Royal Academy

between 1864 and 1919 whilst also exhibiting at the Royal Society of British Artists and the

British Institute.


2 Sidney Richard Percy

1821 - 1886

Sidney Richard Percy Williams was the fifth son of the artist Edward Williams. He was born

in London and began his career when his elder brothers were already established artists.

Percy’s very early work was signed 'Sidney Williams' but he was only 20 when he adopted the

use of ‘Percy’ as the name under which his paintings were to achieve a greater popularity

than those of any other member of the Williams family.

When Percy married in 1863, he and his new family settled in Buckinghamshire. Their

Regency home, Hill House was ideally placed for the study of the English wooded landscape,

as it looked across the Misbourne Valley to the beech woods and beyond. Percy reached the

peak of his popularity as an artist during the years he spent at Hill House and was able to

support the extravagant tastes of his wife - maintaining a carriage and employing an army of

servants.

As well as the Lake District Percy was very fond of the Welsh countryside which he painted

often and he also produced a number of Scottish landscapes. His paintings have a marked

sense of design and his clarity and detail reflect his great interest in photography. He

exhibited at the Royal Academy, the British Institution and the Royal Society of British Artists,

Suffolk Street.

3 Fredrik Marinus Kruseman

1816 - 1882

Born in Haarlem in 1816, Kruseman showed an early talent for drawing. Between 1832 and

1833 he attended the City Drawing School and he studied painting with Roosenboom.

He would have come into contact with the great artist Schelfhout during this period, as he

was a regular visitor to Roosenboom’s studio. In 1833 Kruseman made his debut at the

Exhibition of Living Masters in The Hague.

Kruseman moved to Kleve in 1836 and it was here, under the informal tutelage of

B.C. Koekkoek, that he was now inspired to paint realistic landscapes and to give expression

to the feeling that the landscape evoked in him. He learned how to paint trees and how

to indicate skate tracks in the snow by applying white paint and then scratching it off whilst

wet with the sharp end of a brush. In 1841 the artist moved to Brussels where he was to

remain for most of his life. The salons and coffee houses there were natural meeting grounds

for artists and amongst others Kruseman met Verboeckhoven here with whom he

collaborated often.

During the fifties and sixties Kruseman gave ruins and castles greater prominence in his work,

more for Romantic effect than for accurate topography. Winter landscapes made up about

two thirds of his work and during the later fifties his art came to full fruition. He introduced

his first coral-like tree branches and the depth of his panoramic landscapes became more

marked. His cool grey-blue tones gave way to a much warmer palette. This particular example

is among the finest of the oeuvre. Kruseman worked well into the late seventies and

eventually died in Saint-Gillis near Brussels on 25th May, 1882.

4 Charles Joseph Frédéric Soulacroix

1825 - 1889

A Stirring Conversation

Signed

Oil on Canvas

34 x 26 ins / 86.3 x 66 cms

Soulacroix was born in Montpellier in France on 6th July, 1825. He enrolled at the Ecole des

Beaux-Arts in September, 1845, studying with the sculptors A.A. Dumont (1801-1884) and

E.J. Ramey (1796-1852) and the German painter P. Cornelius (1783-1867). The artist won

awards for both sculpture and painting and he made his debut at the Salon in 1849.

Soulacroix painted a number of history paintings and he also decorated the dome and six side

chapels in Notre Dame Cathedral between 1863 and 1865 at the request of Monseigneur

Haffreingue, the Bishop of Boulogne-sur-Mer.

In July, 1852 Soulacroix married Giacinta Diofebo in Rome. He worked there after his

marriage and also in Parma, Pisa, Livorno and Florence. During his time in Italy he perfected

his best known subject matter, scenes depicting 18th century costumed figures. Soulacroix

excelled in painting figures enjoying the fashionable salons of Paris and Florence. He

demonstrated his technical skills by painting elegant furniture and the fine silk and satin

fabrics of dresses and wall coverings.

This particular painting depicts three sumptuously dressed women enjoying afternoon tea, a

ritual central to the vibrant salon culture of the period. The salons of Paris allowed

fashionable women to gather and refine their taste and knowledge through conversation.

The elaborate satin gowns, fine china adorned with Japanese motifs, silk covered walls and

Louis XV ormolu furniture are all marks of the very best taste they sought to refine.

Soulacroix’s paintings were very popular among the society he depicted and brought him

considerable success during his lifetime. He continues to be regarded as the master of his

genre today. The artist died on 9th May, 1889 in Florence.

A Pair of Oils on Board

9 3 /4 x 6 ins / 24.8 x 15.2 cms

Antonietta Brandeis was born in Miskowitz, Austria in 1849. She studied under Karel Javurek

in Prague before moving to Venice to become a pupil at the Academy.

The development of international tourism in the 19th century meant that many more people

were travelling to the beauty spots of Europe. Venice was a very popular destination for these

travellers and the demand for paintings of Venice grew. This demand resulted in an influx of

artists to Venice all of whom produced topographical views of the city and its environs.

The presence of painters from Austria, such as Eugene de Blaas and F.R. Unterberger is not

surprising in view of the fact that Venice was under Austrian rule for part of the century.

Brandeis was another such artist.

Her paintings were enormously popular and provided visitors with exquisite mementos of

their time in the city. She painted the famous landmarks in intricate detail and captured the

light and vitality which are the essence of Venice. Brandeis also went to Rome and Florence

and painted there although her depictions of Venice are the most prized.

8 Adelsteen Normann

1848 - 1918

A Norwegian Fijord

Signed

Oil on Canvas

25 x 38 ins / 63.5 x 96.5 cms

Adelsteen Normann was born on 1st May, 1848 at Bodo, Norway. He started his working life

in business, but gave this up before he was twenty and went to Düsseldorf to study painting.

Normann loved his native Norway, but knew he would receive a better artistic training in

Germany. He worked in Düsseldorf from 1869 to 1873 with the well known charismatic

Russian professor Eugen Ducker, who encouraged him in his imaginative treatment of

landscape.

Normann was almost exclusively a landscape painter. Under the influence of Ducker it was in

Düsseldorf that Normann produced his most inspired Norwegian scenes. It was the fjords

that fascinated Normann most, and he was preoccupied with trying to recreate their

atmosphere. He loved Norwegian rural life and the harmony this seemed to have with the

surrounding landscape. Paintings of fishermen, peasants and small villages set against the

snow are typical of this. He was also very interested in the effect of the sun and moon on the

snow, the feel of the snow at night and its different appearance and feeling during the

various seasons.

Normann’s work was very much appreciated during his lifetime. He exhibited in Berlin,

Vienna, London, Düsseldorf and Munich. He also exhibited at the Salon de Paris from 1882,

where he received an honourable mention in 1884 and the bronze medal in 1889.

9 Edouard Léon Cortès

1882 - 1969

Place de la Bastille, Paris

Signed

Oil on Canvas

13 x 18 inches / 33 x 45.7 cms

Cortès was born on 6th August 1882 into a family of artists and artisans. His family

originated from Seville but came to France in 1855 for the Exposition Universelle and never

returned to Spain. They settled in Lagny which is about 20 miles east of Paris as there had

been an artistic community there for many years. Cortès lived there for most of his life,

leaving school at the age of 13 to enter his father’s studio where he learnt to paint.

In 1899 Cortès was admitted to the Salon and his work was praised by the international

press. Although Cortès painted some landscapes and other genres his main interest was that

of portraying the Paris of the Belle Epoque. This period lasted between 1880 and 1914 and

saw the glorious rise of art, music, theatre, literature and industry. The Parisians were able to

enjoy the fruits of the rebuilding of the city undertaken by Napoleon III and Haussmann.

In 1888 the ‘Figaro Illustré’ devoted a special issue to this ‘spectacle de la rue’ calling the

boulevards the ‘true theatre’ of Paris. Cortès painted the boulevards and the famous

monuments of Paris and delighted in capturing them with many different lighting effects,

weathers and viewpoints.


10 James Edwin Meadows

1828 - 1888

A Summer’s Day

Signed and Dated 1880

Oil on Canvas

30 x 48 ins / 76.2 x 122 cms

A London landscape painter, James Edwin Meadows was the son of well-known artist, James

Meadows, Sr. and came from a family with a strong artistic tradition.

Despite being based in London, James Edwin Meadows travelled extensively throughout

Great Britain seeking inspiration for his landscapes, particularly concentrating on the

Southern coastline. He frequently painted views in Essex, Kent, Sussex, Surrey and the Isle of

Wight.

James Edwin Meadows exhibited at the major London Galleries including the Royal Academy

(1854-72), the British Institute and the Royal Society of British Artists.


11 Johannes Hendrik Eversen

1906 - 1995

J.H. Eversen was born in The Hague on 30th May, 1906. He was a descendant of the wellknown

19th century artist, Adrianus Eversen, who painted town scenes.

Eversen began his career as a portrait painter, under the direction of the artist W. Lampe,

working mostly in watercolours. He changed direction after attending the Heatherley School

of Art in London during the 1930s. There he began to explore the still-life subjects of the

17th century Dutch old masters such as Claesz and de Heem. Eversen carefully studied their

subject matter and began to incorporate oysters, wine flutes, cheese and fruit into his own

work, often using pewterware and wine bottles to enhance his composition. He enjoyed

painting different textures such as wood, porcelain and leather and his talent can be fully

appreciated in subjects which depict musical instruments or books. Eversen developed to

perfection the use of a single bright light source in his work. This gives the paintings a

dramatic quality and creates a feeling of realism. His paintings reflect a timeless serenity and

are always carefully balanced in colour, shape and texture.

The artist died in Arnhem on 30th December, 1995.

1815 - 1907

Good Companions

Signed

Oil on Canvas

30 x 50 ins / 76.2 x 127 cms

John Frederick Herring, Jr. came from a family of sporting and animal artists, which included

his father, who was a very famous painter of sporting and animal subjects, his two brothers,

Benjamin and Charles, and his uncle, Benjamin, Sr. His mother (a member of the Society of

Lady Artists) was also a competent painter and exhibited genre scenes at the Royal Academy

from 1852 to 1866.

John was the first of three sons to help his successful father. He worked in both oil and

watercolour, but his oils are of greater interest and they have in the past often been confused

with those of his father. He exhibited extensively at the Royal Academy between 1863 and

1873 and also showed at the British Institute and the Suffolk Street Galleries. Herring married

the artist Kate Rolfe and spent the latter part of his life at Fulbourn near Cambridge


13 Charles Haigh-Wood

1856 - 1927

The Picture Book

Signed and Dated ‘93

Oil on Canvas

12 x 15 ins / 30.5 x 38.1 cms

Charles Haigh-Wood was born in 1856 in a home above a workshop in Bury in the north of

England. His father, Charles Wood, was a master craftsman who made picture frames. By the

1870s when Charles Sr.'s business was prospering, he diversified into picture-dealing, and the

family moved into a substantial new home.

While studying at the Royal Academy Schools, Haigh-Wood captured a great deal of

attention, and by 21 he was exhibiting at the Academy proper and was subsequently elected

a member. Following his election, he travelled and studied Renaissance masters in Italy,

before returning to settle in England.

His talent at painting portraits brought him many commissions but Haigh-Wood was best

known for painting drawing room "conversation pieces", or story-telling scenes of polite

society, which made him a popular genre painter in the late 19th century. His work was very

sought after during his lifetime and a number of his paintings were purchased by greetingcard

manufacturers for reproduction, which ensured both his fame and financial security.

Manchester City Art Gallery, the Walker Gallery in Liverpool and Bury Art Museum all have

examples of work by Haigh-Wood.


14 Louis Bosworth Hurt

1856 - 1929

The Highlands

Signed and Dated 1901

Oil on Canvas

24 x 40 ins / 61 x 101.6 cms

Born in Ashbourne, Derbyshire, Hurt became famous for his paintings of the Scottish

Highlands and his portrayal of Highland cattle. Some of Hurt’s early training was as the pupil

of another well-known Derbyshire artist, George Turner. Much of his work was done at his

home in Ivonbrook, where he kept his own herd of Highland cattle, although he made

frequent visits to Scotland. He also painted small landscapes during Snowdonian autumn

holidays, when he had a cottage at Bettws. Occasionally he painted views in the Southern

Counties, especially at Burnham Beeches, and a list of his sales documented in Benezit

suggests that he also visited France.


15 Henry Redmore

1820-1887

Haybarges, Morning Light

Signed & Dated 1874

Oil on Canvas

18 x 30 ins / 45.7 x 76.2 cms

The Humberside artist Henry Redmore is recognised as one of Britain's greatest marine

painters. His earliest works show the influence of the Scottish marine painter, William

Anderson (1757-1837) who resided in Hull for some time. John Ward (1798-1849), another

great marine painter from Hull, may well have taught Redmore.

Many of Redmore's works depict shipping in the Humber estuary, off the Yorkshire coast and

in the harbours of Whitby and Scarborough. He also visited the South West Coast of England

and pictures are recorded by him of Torbay and several other ports on the Devon and Cornish

coast. He travelled to Holland and Germany, with Hull playing an important role in trade

between Britain and the continent during the 19th century. The influence of the great Dutch

17th Century masters - Willem Van de Velde, Ludolf Bakhuysen and Jan Van Goyen - can be

clearly seen in many of Henry Redmore's paintings.

The serenity, stillness, sense of colour and above all, the high standard of draughtsmanship

account for the quality of his paintings, which are highly prized by collectors today.

The attention Redmore paid to detail shows that he was a careful observer of shipping

activity between the Humber and the continent, and this helps to create the unique

atmosphere achieved in his work.

Redmore exhibited at the Royal Academy and the Ferens Art Gallery in Hull has examples of

his work.


16 Charles Towne

1763 - 1840

Charles Towne was born in Wigan in 1763. He was trained as a coach painter and by the age

of 17 was set up in the town as a japanner and decorative painter. Towne also studied

landscape painting receiving instruction from John Rathbone, the 'Manchester Richard

Wilson'. In 1787, Towne exhibited his first landscape at the recently founded Liverpool Society

for Promoting Painting and Design. Towne also made copies of George Stubbs' two paintings

exhibited there, 'Harvesters' and 'Reapers'. By the 1790s, he was becoming an established

animal painter with a style based on his study of Stubbs.

Towne was also very interested in the work of the Dutch seventeenth century landscape

painters. Artist W.S. Sparrow wrote that "his landscapes are minutely detailed and have a

Dutch mannerism; animals and figures are put in with diligent and affectionate care". His

landscapes were either romanticised versions of real topography or purely imaginary visions.

The lyricism of Towne's setting heightened the solid reality and presence of his animals.

On his first visit to London in 1796, Towne received favourable mention from Joseph

Farington, who noted that the artist had 'six months work bespoke'. Towne began exhibiting

at the Royal Academy in 1799. Although he spent the first decade of the new century in

London, where he became friends with George Morland and de Loutherbourg, Towne

achieved most in Liverpool, where he settled in 1811. He was elected Vice-President of the

new Liverpool Academy of Artists in 1812 and again the following year, and continued

exhibiting there and in Manchester until 1825.

Although Towne is best-known for his paintings of horses, especially hunters, he studied

every aspect of rural life and sport. He also won commissions to paint cattle, favourite dogs,

hunting and shooting scenes, and occasional pieces in the Grand Manner with such titles as

'Tiger growling over her prey'. His works can be found in the Walker Gallery, Liverpool.

17 Edward George Handel Lucas

1861 - 1936

School Board Assistants

Signed and Dated 1885-6

Oil on Panel

6 x 8 ins / 15.3 x 20.3 cms

Edward Handel Lucas was a painter of still-life, landscape and figure subjects. He exhibited

at the Royal Academy, Royal Society of British Artists, and Grosvenor Gallery and is best

known for his meticulous still life subjects with moralistic titles. His attention to detail was

such that his paintings rarely took less than six months to complete and very often longer.

Such is the scarcity of his work that his life story has remained totally forgotten until recently

when his diaries of newspaper cuttings were discovered.

Named after his father's favourite composer, Handel Lucas was hailed a child genius when he

first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1879 at the age of seventeen. From then on his work

appeared regularly at the annual Academy exhibitions and always drew notices praising his

consistent quality. “Mr. Handel Lucas... possesses in a more marked degree than any still life

painter I have met with, that genius which a great writer has informed us is an infinite

capacity for taking pains.”

By 1910, with the tide of fashion turning in favour of Impressionism, Handel Lucas found his

work became increasingly difficult to sell. Three years later, it was recorded that he was

working on a picture in an attempt to pay the rent bill of £60. The landlady would not wait

for its completion and the families were evicted. His work began to reappear at London

auctions in 1972, as did a demand for his highly detailed still life paintings. Geraldine

Norman wrote an article about Handel Lucas called 'Blowing The Dust Off A Forgotten Pre-

Impressionist' in The Times in 1972.


18 Walter Hunt

1861 - 1941

Rough and Tumble

Signed and Dated 1903

Oil on Canvas

20 x 30 ins / 50.8 x 76.2 cms

Walter Hunt was born in 1861 into a highly artistic family. His father Charles Hunt was a

painter of genre scenes, and his brother Edgar Hunt is well known for his portraits of

chickens, goats and rabbits. Walter Hunt is best known for his paintings of farmyard scenes,

particularly of calves, horses and dogs. His paintings achieve superb colour and are

meticulously detailed.

Walter Hunt lived at Wandsworth in London, and exhibited works at the Royal Academy

from 1881. In 1885 a painting entitled 'Dog in the Manger' was bought by The Chantrey

Bequest.

Paintings by Walter Hunt can be seen at The Tate Gallery and also in the Sunderland Museum.


19 Joseph Clarke

1834 - 1926

A Christmas Dole

Signed

Oil on Canvas

35 x 47 ins / 88.9 x 119.3 cms

Exhibited: R A 1889 no. 444

Joseph Clarke was born near Dorchester, Dorset. He studied painting in London under J. M.

Leigh (1808-1860), who was himself the only pupil of William Etty, RA (1787-1849), the

celebrated painter of classical and historical subjects. Clarke specialised in depicting domestic

genre subjects of a tender nature which generally featured children and he also painted a

small number of biblical subjects. In 1857 at the age of twenty three he exhibited his first

painting at the Royal Academy and he continued to exhibit there for all but two of the

subsequent forty seven years.

Many Victorian painters sought to demonstrate their social conscience through emphasising

in their paintings the importance of family life and Joseph Clarke was no exception. Whilst

avoiding the overly sentimental style of some of his contemporaries, he frequently chose

subjects which sought to remind people of their good fortune in having a caring family at a

time when many children grew up as orphans in workhouses. Even in this painting, which

depicts such a happy family gathered together to celebrate Christmas, Clarke’s choice of title

refers to the ‘Christmas Dole’ - literally the tradition which may stretch as far back as the

Middle Ages of ‘the dole of the Christmas box’, when priests opened the church’s alms boxes

to distribute their contents to the poor.

Joseph Clarke enjoyed considerable success with his paintings, maintaining both a London

house and a home in the country for much of his life. In 1876 he was awarded a medal in

Philadelphia for his paintings ‘The Sick Child’ and ‘The Nest’. The Chantrey Bequest purchased

two of his paintings, ‘Early Promise’ in 1877 and ‘A Mother’s Darling’ in 1885.


20 Charles Euphrasie Kuwasseg

1838 - 1904

Sunlit Port, Italy

Signed and Dated 1868

Canvas

22 x 39 1 /4 ins / 55.8 x 99.7 cms

Born in Draveil, Charles Euphrasie Kuwasseg was the son of Austrian painter Karl Joseph

Kuwasseg. Initially he trained and worked with his father but after a while he became a sailor

and travelled the world. On his return to France in 1883, he began his formal artistic training

and studied under Durand-Brager and d’Isabey.

Kuwasseg specialised in painting landscapes of the Breton and Normandy coast, seascapes

of the North Sea and scenes in Italy. He collaborated with the artist Poilpot on a series of

different landscapes. Kuwasseg exhibited at the Salons des Artistes Français from early on in

his career and won a 3rd class medal in 1892 and he eventually became a professor of art.

Kuwasseg’s delicate yet confident style was highly valued during his lifetime and he was

regarded by his contemporaries as one of the finest artists of this genre. His paintings can be

found in the museums of Montreal, Pontoise, Rouen, Perigueux, Digne and La Rochelle.


21 Delphin Enjolras

1857 - 1945

La Belle Fleur

Signed

Pastel on Canvas

20 1 /2 x 28 1 /2 ins / 52.1 x 72.4 cms

Delphin Enjolras was born in 1857 at Courcouron in the Ardèche. He had a formal artistic

training studying under the celebrated teacher Gérome at the Beaux-Arts, and Dagnan-

Bouveret.

He painted some fine landscapes, in particular those hanging in the Musée du Puy, and the

Musée Calvet d'Avignon. However the majority of Enjolras' oil paintings and pastels depict

young ladies illuminated by lamplight. His subjects are often engaged in simple domestic

pursuits such as reading, sewing or flower arranging, although at times he sought a more

intimate portrayal.

Enjolras exhibited at the Société des Artistes Français, of which he became a member in 1901,

and at the Paris Salon from 1890. His work is represented in the Musée du Puy and Musée

d’Avignon.

1856 - 1926

Signed and Inscribed ‘Venezia’

Oil on Canvas

15 x 22 1 /2 ins / 38.1 x 57.1 cms

Rafael Senet y Perez was born in Seville on 7th October, 1856. He studied under Joaquin

Dominguez Becquer and Eduardo Cano de la Preda at the college of fine arts in Seville and

then under J. Villegas y Cordero. Senet then moved to Madrid where he continued his formal

education by studying the old masters in the Prado. In 1881 he went to Rome and then

travelled extensively in Italy, visiting Florence, Venice and Naples before returning to Seville at

the beginning of the 1890s. He settled there and aligned himself with a group of landscape

artists which had formed around the painter Sanchez Perrier.

The development of international tourism in the 19th century meant that a new type of

traveller visited the beauty spots of Europe. High on the list of desirable destinations was

Venice and paintings depicting Venice were increasingly popular as reminders of such visits

for the new tourist. As well as native Italian artists who mainly painted Venice, such as Rubens

Santoro (1859-1942), there were also many foreign artists who, like Senet, had a fascination

for the city. One of the most famous of these was the Peruvian artist Federico del Campo who

had also studied in Madrid like Senet before travelling to Italy.

Senet was involved in various exhibitions in Seville, Cadiz, Madrid and elsewhere and was

awarded several prestigious medals. His paintings of Venice were very highly regarded during

his lifetime and the prominent Tooth Gallery in London had exclusive sales rights for his work.

The artist was a great draughtsman and colourist and his work captures not only the exquisite

architecture of the city but also its unique atmosphere and beauty.

Alfred Arthur Brunel de Neuville was born in Paris and specialised in still life subjects and

paintings of animals, especially cats. The artist uses broad brushstrokes to great effect and

his use of colour is always warm and rich.

He exhibited at the Société des Artistes Français from 1879 and was elected a member in

1907. The museums of Beziers, Brest, Chateau Thierry and Louviers hold examples of his work.


24 Anders Andersen-Lundby

Signed

Oil on Canvas

30 x 45 ins / 76.2 x 114.3 cms

Andersen-Lundby was born on 16th December, 1841 in Lundby, a town near Aalborg in

Denmark. In 1861 the artist went to Copenhagen to pursue his artistic career. He stayed there

for several years living within the artistic community. Andersen-Lundby moved to Munich in

1876 where he exhibited his works virtually every year. For the most part the artist painted

winter landscapes often depicting late afternoon sunshine or dusk. His works are very

atmospheric and his technique became very impressionistic towards the latter part of his life.

Museums in Copenhagen, Munich and Trieste hold examples of his work.


25 Antoine Blanchard

1910 - 1988

Antoine Blanchard was born in a village near Blois on the banks of the River Loire in 1910.

His father had an important joinery business and was well known in the area. Perhaps it was

through watching his father carving wood and producing fine craftsmanship that the artistic

spirit was kindled in the young Blanchard. Soon his parents were actively encouraging

Antoine by sending him to Blois for drawing lessons. They realised that this would only give

him the rudiments and to achieve a successful artistic career he would need expert guidance.

For this reason he was sent to Rennes to attend classes at the School of Beaux Arts.

He studied for three years and developed a remarkable drawing skill, which was to prove

invaluable in later life. Sadly, Antoine Blanchard's artistic hopes were put aside when he had

to take over the family joinery business left to him by his father. He painted occasionally for

pleasure, but had to refuse many important commissions from art dealers as business

pressures were so great. He eventually retired from business and moved to Paris, where he

lived until his death. Antoine Blanchard took no interest in the aspects of modern life and

always depicted the elegance of life in Paris in the early 1900s.

Signed

Oil on Canvas

19 3 /4 x 25 1 /2 ins / 50.2 x 64.7 cms

Charles Garabed Atamian was an Armenian painter and illustrator of landscape and marine

subjects. The majority of his works are oil paintings and he often depicted beach scenes,

especially children playing in the sand.

Atamian was born in Constantinople, but predominantly worked and exhibited in Paris.

He exhibited at La Nationale from 1913-42, at the Independent Gallery from 1938-45, and

he was made an Associate of La Nationale in 1927.

Atamian’s work has always been very popular and in high demand. He captures not only the

luminosity of wet, sun-drenched sand, but also the charm of children playing in the 1920s

and 1930s.


28 Sir William Russell Flint RA

1880 - 1969

Vanity in the Wash-house

Sir William Russell Flint was born on 4th April 1880 in Edinburgh. He was the eldest son of

Francis Wighton Flint, the Scottish artist, under whom he studied painting and drawing.

At the age of 14, he was apprenticed to a firm of lithographers, where he remained for

6 years. He was also taking evening classes at the Royal Institution School of Art.

In 1900, he came to London and was first employed to do medical drawings, later being

appointed to work on the ‘Illustrated London News’ from 1903-1907. During this time he

studied at Heatherley’s School in the evenings. He became interested in book illustration,

his first works being the illustrations to Rider Haggard’s ‘King Solomon’s Mines’. He took up

etching, which he studied at the Hammersmith School of Art in 1914.

As early as 1905 he was exhibiting watercolours at the Salon de la Societe Nationale in Paris

and in 1906, exhibited his first picture at the Royal Academy, where he exhibited regularly

until his death. He was made an Associate in 1924 after hanging only three oils, and a full

member in 1933. He was also made a member of the Royal Society of Painters in

Watercolours in 1917 and was president of the society from 1936 to 1956. He spent much

time abroad painting on the continent especially in Spain, France and Italy. Works in the

Victoria and Albert Museum, London; the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge; the Liverpool and

Cardiff Galleries and several other Scottish and provincial galleries represent him. He was

knighted in 1947 and died in London in 1969.

1910 - 1975

Un Baie en Bretagne

Signed

Oil on Canvas

15 x 18 ins / 38.1 x 45.7

Pierre de Clausade was born in Paris on the 15th April, 1910. Although he did not begin to

paint for exhibition until he was 31, the desire to express himself through painting had

occurred to him many years before. Clausade felt that, in addition to a thorough knowledge

of his craft, he must experiment - following the example of his contemporaries Braque,

Matisse and Picasso. After many years of trial and error he felt sufficiently confident to hold

his first exhibition in Paris in 1943. The exhibition was a phenomenal success and as a result

further shows were held during the following years in Paris, Rio de Janeiro, Boston, New York

and Jordan.

Pierre de Clausade exhibited regularly at the Société des Beaux Arts and became a member

of the Salon d’Hiver. Then his fame spread abroad and his paintings entered many

distinguished collections, including that of the Brazilian Ambassador and the Boston and

Minneapolis Museums of Fine Art. Despite this success Clausade continued to develop his

technique, striving for perfection and the satisfaction of his analytical nature.

Pierre de Clausade was awarded the great honour of the Medaille d'Argent by the jury of the

Paris Salon in January 1953.

Signed

Oil on Canvas

20 x 30 ins / 50.7 x 76.2 cms

Colin Burns is a renowned painter of landscape, sporting art and natural history subjects.

Born in Norfolk, many of Colin’s paintings depict views of East Anglia, the beauty of which

has inspired so many fine artists from the 18th century to the present day. However, he is

equally adept at capturing the highlands of Scotland and many other beautiful unspoilt areas

of England and Europe. This year Colin worked on a series of London views in celebration of

the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympic Games. He has held seven one-man

exhibitions in London and his work is represented in many important private collections, both

in Europe and America.

36 James Brereton

Born 1954

James Brereton was born in 1954. He studied at the Joseph Wright Art School in Derby.

By 1979 James was selling enough of his paintings to give up his job and become a

professional artist. His interest in ships and the sea was growing and this took precedence

over the wide variety of other subjects he had painted in the past. These marine works were

strongly influenced by the great marine painters Thomas Somerscales and Montague

Dawson. James sailed before the mast on the Sir Winston Churchill schooner belonging to

the Sail Training Association in the 1990s. This was an exhilarating experience which provided

him with much inspiration.

Currently, nearly all James’ works are of marine subjects and they are often painted on a large

scale in oil as he believes ‘the vast ocean is often best captured on a big canvas’. His largest

commission to date has been a pair of canvases measuring 65 x 87 inches, each of Omani

Dhows, which now hang in a fine palace. James has exhibited widely in England, including

showing at the Royal Society of Marine Artists in London.
