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 […]

LS Lowry: 6 Things you didn’t know


LS Lowry was one of Britain’s most successful post-war artists, famous for his industrial and urban landscapes populated with ‘match-stick’ figurines.

Best known for painting industrial scenes of North West England in the mid 20th century, LS Lowry produced a number of fantastic works over the course of his career. Although Lowry was trained in academic drawing, he chose to develop his own naive style which has brought him widespread recognition. His mysterious, weatherless landscapes express a personal response to the world around him that never fails to bewitch the viewer.

However, the artist […]

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 […]

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 […]
