Welcome to my mid-summer newsletter (number 4) which will be suitably brief as I have no doubt that the sunshine beckons!
R B Kitaj
Don’t forget that the wonderful prints by iconic and influential artist R B Kitaj will be on show and for sale from Wednesday 7 August. All pieces are either signed or initialled by the artist and are priced from £450 to £1,250.
Jewish American-born Kitaj adopted Britain as his home from 1959 and subsequently, along with his long-time friend Hockney, became an integral part of the creation and development of the Pop Art movement in this country. His work is often complex, full of symbols and always powerful. He cut a tragic and dramatic figure and ended his own life a few days before his 75th birthday in 2007.
In addition to the recent retrospective shows at the Jewish Museum in London and Pallant House in Chichester, The British Museum has a considerable body of his works in its permanent collection, as does the Tate and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, to name but a few.
Derrick Greaves’ screen-prints – disappearing quickly
We are delighted to have three screen-prints by Derrick Greaves in stock at present but if you like them be warned, they are disappearing very quickly indeed – we started with six!
They are all very reasonably priced between £450 and £650 (including frame) and look wonderful when hung.
- Our feature potter is the wonderful Jean-Nicolas Gerard, whose freely-thrown pots are wonderful and full of wonky integrity
- Our usual mixed bag of artistic goodies will, as always, be available downstairs should you wish to have a rummage and go in search of inspiration for your next purchase
- Wednesday 2 October marks the first day of our Bruce McLean show
Feel free to drop by for a chat to discuss your particular artistic wants and needs and we will endeavour to provide those perfect pieces for your walls: remember our gallery may be small, but our stock reach is vast!
