  • Mary Fedden’s is renowned for her unique perspective and great talent for finding beauty in the everyday. This piece was painted in 1946, the year Mary Fedden was able to resume easel painting after the Second World War. Her first solo exhibition followed the next year at the Mansard Gallery in Heal’s Department Store, where several of her still life flower paintings were displayed. Fedden developed her own style of flower paintings and still lifes, reminiscent of artists such as Matisse and Braque. She worked with bold palettes and simplified shapes, carefully orchestrating her still life compositions to draw out the extraordinary from ordinary objects. In fact, it was her constant progression and development throughout her career that makes her overall body of work so interesting; from her earlier pieces playing with colour, perspective, and patterns to her later work experimenting with light, texture, and crisper, cleaner lines.

    by Hajime Kato

    DIMENSIONS: (unframed) 51.2 x 63.8 in./130.0 x 162.0 cm SIGNATURE: Signed 'Kato' and dated (lower left) MEDIUM: Oil on canvas   “His style is filled with a brisk energy, like wind fairies dancing wildly in the transparent morning sun light.” (Shuji Takashina, professor Emeritus at Toyko University and Director of Ohara Art Museum.)   Kato’s mesmerising paintings are filled with sharp edged spindle-shapes that appear ready to slice open the air that surrounds them. Each of these shapes appears to be moving, creating a sense of speed and tension within the picture. The way the shapes interlock and overlap one another gives them a very sleek almost natural appearance, despite their bright, otherworldly colours. This creates a sense of euphoria for the viewer, as if they are floating in a boundless space, completely freed from our Earthly bindings.

  • Sir Alfred Munnings was a leading figure in the British art establishment in the first half of the 20th century and is one of the greatest equestrian painters in the history of British art. Although it was his horse portraits that brought him widespread acclaim, he was also a highly accomplished painter of pure landscapes. What sets Munnings apart from so many other artists of his era is his sheer ability as a painter, which is apparent in these landscapes, the freedom and spontaneity of his brushstrokes and his obvious enjoyment in the lusciousness of the paint itself combined brilliantly with his subtle and highly individual colouring.

  • Pont Mirabeau, Paris

    by Sir Herbert James Gunn

    In this striking view of Pont Mirabeau in Paris, the physical location plays second fiddle to the technical structure of the composition, with only a brief visual reference to Le Trocadero on the horizon. We have to remember that although we are now quite used to seeing pictorial arrangements like this in the 21st Century, when this oil on board was executed in 1913, his work was incredibly avant-garde, challenging much of the sentimental landscapes that were still being reproduced by the bulk of commercial Edwardian artists in Britain.
  • In his paintings Maufra stayed often quite traditional, but sometimes borrowed the more pointillisit technique of Pissarro or Sisley, and also took the strong colors and powerful drawing of the Pont Aven school. However, Maufra stayed an independent artist all his life, and dedicated his art to recording the beauty of nature.

  • This painting shows the photo-finish result of the St Leger race in 1848, held at Doncaster Racecourse. The composition of this work has a drama and intensity that is as true today of horse racing as it was in the mid-1800’s and is achieved by the strong, horizontal composition that sees the horses entering the picture plane from right to left in a ‘snap shot’ of action, with the frozen crowd emphasising this effect. The winning horse, Surplice is described as ‘the colt of his generation’, being a thoroughbred racehorse who won both St Leger in 1848 and The Derby Stakes. Painted towards the end of his life in 1848 this work represents his confidence as a painter and as an illustrator of sporting news stories.

    by Paul César Helleu

    Referenced in the archives of the Amis de Paul-César Helleu under the n° 4338. Authenticated by Mrs. Howard-Johnston in 1988. In this elegant drawing, Paul César Helleu has rapidly drawn this stylishly attired woman using his signature loose gestural draughtmanship. This looseness and ease of depiction suggests that the work was finished in situ, rather than through a series of studies, which is how Helleu preferred to work. Although this drawing was clearly composed rapidly, Helleu has taken careful care in depicting the sitter’s fashionable furbelowed dress and  hat with jaunty feathers. Additionally, he has delicately rendered her up to date makeup and hairstyle by judicious application of colour. Paul César Helleu has created an exquisite drawing of a society lady; his trademark.

    by Claude Venard

    Claude Venard is known for his powerful abstract compositions that explore the inner forces and underlying rhythms of subjects, rather than their outward appearance. This opens up the viewer to new perspective and way of looking by projecting spatial vistas into every part of the canvas, in accordance with an emotional rather than a physical order. Venard’s optimistic attitude and obvious enjoyment of life imbues everyday objects and his views of Paris with an undeniably French joie de vivre. The artist said of his approach to his paintings “One must be wary of works that seduce at first sight; I do not mean that ugliness is a virtue, but a painting should be powerful without the use of trite devices.”   DIMENSIONS: (unframed) 39.4 x 31.9 in./ 100.0 x 81.0 cm SIGNATURE: Signed 'Venard' lower left MEDIUM: Oil on canvas

    by Giovanni Battista Torriglia

    Torriglia’s work is renowned for the superb depiction of interior scenes featuring Italian peasant families. He studied in Florence, where he developed his particular skill of capturing the vibrancy of everyday Italian life. The intricate detail and vivid personalities evident in his figures makes Torriglia stand out from other 19th Century genre painters.   The cosy effect of his interiors contrasts with the glimpses of outer life which we are afforded and his animals and children particularly are portrayed with affectionate knowledge. The figures have a superb feeling of realism and their natural and believable poses underline Torriglia’s firm placing in art history.

He gradually became known for his technique of thick application of paint, applying layers to the canvas in a freer brushstroke, to create balanced compositions of animation and tantalising effects of light. We can see this in the painting Reflections, as he reflects the light off the water of a river, with subtle harmonies of ochre and green tones.
