‘IT WAS ONE OF THOSE MARCH DAYS WHEN THE SUN SHINES HOT AND THE WIND BLOWS COLD; WHEN IT IS SUMMER IN THE LIGHT, AND WINTER IN THE SHADE.’
– CHARLES DICKENS
As an art dealership in the Cotswolds, we always have businesses in mind and are excited to share our new offering with businesses. For more information please explore our Gallery News. March may be named after the Roman god of war but in reality, it is one of the happiest months on the calendar. Flowers are budding, Spring officially begins and the clocks move on. We are delighted to now have a date in the diary of reopening our galleries, on April 12th. We look forward to bringing the works which we share with you online to life, as they will be displayed, lit and ready to be appreciated in the flesh!
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, Sunday 14th March (in case anyone needs a little reminder…!) we have put together a selection of pieces with women as the main subject. You may have already received the link to the exhibition page on our website to this, however, if you have missed it please click the link below….

Signed ‘J. Cavailles’ (lower right)
‘Jeune Fille au Gilet Vert, 1941’ by Jules Cavaillès is a painting which in the flesh sings with colour. He was an artist who expressed the ‘joy of living’. The decorations of his interiors are a reflection of childhood memories, imbued with a distinctive provincial Napoleon 111 character. These interiors are marked by a kind of maternal warmth, an invitation to adopt an unhurried approach, to quote Delacroix, Jules Cavaillès’ paintings are a ‘feast for the eye’.
He exhibited widely and won several prizes, and his paintings are represented in major collections worldwide such as the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, and the municipal art galleries of Albi, Marseille, Montpellier, Toulouse, Chicago, Helsinki, Tel Aviv and Zurich.
ART DEALERSHIP COTSWOLDS, WITH BUSINESSES IN MIND…
Sometimes it’s nice to have a little more time and with that in mind, we have a new feature for 2021. As an art dealership in the Cotswolds, we are increasingly dealing with businesses and we understand the ebb and flow of liquidity.
We are excited to offer all businesses and limited companies in the United Kingdom an opportunity to acquire artwork with up to 3 months of interest-free credit, with the artwork delivered upon completion of paperwork. We will be sharing information in the coming weeks.
SENIOR SALES DIRECTOR LONDON | TRINITY HOUSE

I wanted to recommend to you a book which explores the life and works of Dorothea Sharp. Influenced by the work of the Impressionists, the clarity of light, her unusual use of colour, and her free brushwork all combined to emphasize her significant role in the development of twentieth-century British art. Her works are now exhibited in museums throughout the world.
‘ROCKPOOLS AND SUNSHINE’ BY HELEN ENTWHISTLE
Here is an artist who dipped her brush into sunshine and painted the most joyous canvases, toddlers with chubby arms, newborn lambs in golden wheatfields and lazy days by the seaside. She painted the sound of laughter, the cry of seagulls, the crashing and splashing of children in turquoise waves on golden sands and earthenware jugs overflowing with blousy flowers.
For this reason, her paintings have proved continuously popular and have as much resonance today as when they were first painted. This book is a really fascinating read and breathes life into this remarkable artist who became one of the most popular and hugely collected female British artists of the 20 century.
