19th Century Art at Trinity House


In the West, the 19th century witnessed major social and technological upheavals, spurred in large by the Industrial Revolution and correlating trends: urbanisation, frequently poor working and living conditions, and territorial expansion by emerging global superpowers. In this period, artistic patronage shifted increasingly towards the capitalist bourgeoisie and national academies, with a rising profile for art dealers and critics. The hub of Western artistic activity was Paris, and the French Academy and Salon represented the establishment, favouring Neoclassicism at the beginning of the century and later Romanticism.

Social and political commentary appeared in the history paintings of Théodore Géricault […]

George Stubbs: The man behind the horse


George Stubbs: The man behind the horse

Early Life

Born in Liverpool in 1724, George Stubbs was the son of leather-dresser John Stubbs and wife Mary. In his early years George worked […]

The Life and Work of Alan Davie


Undeniably Alan Davie is one of Scotland’s most internationally recognised artists, and 5 years after his death we take a look at the life and work of the great modern artist.

Throughout his life, Davie obsessively drew and painted, producing paintings of startling originality, and vitality. Combining imagery derived from different world cultures with a love of music and language, Davie’s paintings are a complex yet joyous celebration of creativity that combine the expressive freedom of abstraction with a wealth of signs, symbols and words.

Pencil artworks at Trinity House


This National pencil Day we take a look at the history of the pencil and explore some fantastic pencil drawings at Trinity House.

Often considered a secondary form to oil paintings, pencil drawings were rarely seen as anything but a starting point for the creative process, and were rarely shown or displayed. However, as times changed and a more democratic approach to visual arts developed along with the changes in society, drawings slowly reached gallery spaces and were sometimes displayed along with the developed studies in other materials.

Artists such as Pablo Picasso, Egon Schiele and […]

Andy Warhol: 6 Things you didn’t know


As a pioneer and central figure of Pop Art, not only did Andy Warhol influence numerous artists, but he also left his mark on Hollywood. However there is a lot more to the artist than his signature look and colourful screen prints.

Andy Warhol is best known for creating iconic Pop art paintings of Campbell’s soup cans and Marilyn Monroe in the 1960s. The legend of Andy Warhol only continues to grow over the years, and his impact on the art world is difficult to overstate. Here are some eccentric facts […]

Modern British Art at Trinity House


In an era characterised by industrialisation, rapid social change, and advances in science, the mid-20th century welcomed a search for new modes of expression in art that better reflected the realities and hopes of modern societies.

Given the recent growth of the Modern British art market, we have selected three highlights from our collection. These works by Mary Fedden, Peter Lanyon and Sandra Blow showcase the variety and breadth of Modern British art and explore why it is so appreciated today.

Salvador Dali: 6 Things you didn’t know


Salvador Dalì is one of the most iconic artists of the 20th century, however there is a lot more to the artist than his surrealist art work and trademark moustache.

Eccentric, divisive and visionary are just a few words to describe Spanish artist Salvador Dalí, and it’s hard to say if there are any number of words that could encapsulate his complex extravagance. With a colourful past and an extensive body of work, there’s so much to learn about the surrealist painter. Discover 6 interesting things about Salvador Dalì that you […]

The colourful life of Beryl Cook


refusing to paint the sinister aspects of life, Beryl Cook’s depictions of happy, flamboyant, and extroverted characters have become instantly recognisable and highly sought after.

Born in Egham, Surrey in 1926, Beryl was one of four sisters. Unfortunately, her parents separated when she was young and her mother and sisters moved away from her father to Reading. It was here, at the age of 10,  that she met her future husband, her next door neighbour John Cook.

Beryl attended school in Reading, however she left at the age of […]

Newlyn School Artists at Trinity House


Introducing our collection of work from the Newlyn School Artists.

Based in the fishing Village of Newlyn, adjacent to Penzance Cornwall, the Newlyn School was an important chapter in the history of British impressionism. The area’s spectacular scenery has attracted visiting artists since the early 19th century, and in the 1880s, numerous British painters began to arrive in Newlyn, many of whom had trained in Paris or Antwerp. In Newlyn they found a similar source of inspiration, but closer to home and with a direct rail link to London.

The Life and Work of Édouard Leon Cortès


Edouard Léon Cortès was a French Post-Impressionist artist of French and Spanish ancestry. Born into a family of artists, his father, Antonio Cortés Cordero, was a painter at the royal court of Spain. In this artistic atmosphere, Cortès showed exceptional talent early on, and decided at a young age that he was destined to be a painter.

In his youth, Cortès trained at his father’s studio, and was also given advice and encouragement from his brother, who was also an artist and other local artists. Before undergoing his formal education at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, […]

Looking Back at the Artist William Orpen on his Birthday


This November we take a look at the life of painter Sir William Orpen, one of the most prolific war artists of WWI.

William Orpen was born on 27th November 1878, in Stillorgan, Ireland. He had a privileged childhood, and grew up with his parents and siblings in their large family home, with extensive grounds containing stables and tennis courts. Both his parents were amateur painters, so it was no surprise when Orpen enrolled at the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art, at the age of thirteen. During his six years at the collage, Orpen won […]

Naive Art at Trinity House


Despite being seen as an outsider art, the Naive art movement has produced some excellent artworks and we are delighted to share our collection of Naive art at Trinity House

Before the 20th century, in its most basic sense naive art was any form of visual art created by a person who lacked the formal education and training a professional artist undergoes. Naive art could easily be dismissed as art that’s created by people who don’t know what they are doing, however that undermines the raw creativity found within artworks of this movement.

Characterised by a childlike […]

Sir Kyffin Williams: The Man Behind the Landscape


Born in Llangefni, Anglesey, on 9 May 1918, Sir Kyffin Williams became one of the most defining Welsh artists of the 20th Century.

Best known for his depictions of the Welsh countryside, shepherds and their sheepdogs, livestock, and small villages, Kyffin Williams grew up on the island of Anglesey, situated on the north coast of Wales. With its beautiful sweeping hills and stunning coastline it is no wonder Williams became so inspired by the Welsh countryside.

Williams was educated in Shropshire, at Moreton Hall School and later Shrewsbury School. However, during his time at […]

The Lost Artwork of 9/11


Along with almost 3,000 lives, it is thought that over $100m of artwork was also lost on the tragic day of September 11 2001.

The day of 9/11 is one that not only shook the United States, but one that shook the world. It saw the loss of almost 3,000 lives and two of the worlds most iconic buildings wiped from the New York skyline and reduced to rubble. However, tens of thousands of records, irreplaceable historical documents and works of art were also lost in the attack. And over a decade later, it is still […]

The Life of Humanitarian Photographer Lisa Kristine


19th August marks World Humanitarian Day and World Photo Day, so it only seems right that we take a look at the astonishing life of Humanitarian Photographer Lisa Kristine.

Kristine has spent the last 30 years documenting the most beautiful people, cultures and landscapes. She seeks out communities that are often undiscovered by the western world, and captures fascinatingly beautiful portraits of these indigenous cultures.

Restoration begins on Banksy mural hidden for over a decade


Last week restoration work finally began on an early Banksy mural, that had been accidentally painted over in 2007.

The mural, which resides inside a former Glasgow nightclub, was painted by the elusive artist in 2001, as part of the ‘Peace is Tough’ exhibition. It features a full length Mona Lisa partially framed, a gun-toting monkey sporting a tutu and the words “Every time i hear the word culture I release the safety on my 9mm”, which sits between the two.

Unbeknown to many of the party goers, this early work by Banksy has sat behind […]

Looking Back at Christopher Nevinson on His Birthday


Not only is Christoper Nevinson famous for his landscape paintings but he is also one of the most famous artists of WWI

Born in Hampstead, North London on 13th August 1889 Christopher Nevinson initially studied at the Slade School of Art, where he befriended Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, the leader of the Italian Futurists, as well Percy Wyndham Lewis. As a result Nevinson became one of the first British artists to show an interest in Futurism and Cubism, and his work was included in the Dore Gallery’s 1913 exhibition, ‘Post-Impressionists and Futurists’. However, this was short-lived as Nevinson […]

Jeremy Houghton: Wildlife, Wimbledon & War Heroes


Broadway’s own Jeremy Houghton has achieved great success over the years and this year is certainly no different.

It’s hard to believe this successful artist nearly didn’t pursue a career in art at all. In the early 90’s Jeremy was studying for a degree in law, at the University of Exeter, after following advice to get a ‘proper job’. However after spending most of his time at university in the back of his camper van which he used  as a mobile studio, he soon realised he would only be truly happy doing what he loved. He finished […]
