In both she depicts her partner, Julian Trevelyan, standing in a street of white stone buildings reaching out toward a disembodied hand. In this iteration she has chosen to paint two cats rather than the dog featured in the 1980 version. This is an example of Fedden’s characteristic collaging together of imagery to form her compositions – she would make many sketches and pull from them to do this. MAKE AN ENQUIRY

She worked with bold palettes and simplified shapes, carefully orchestrating her still life compositions to draw out the extraordinary from ordinary objects. This delightful work Masque at Strawberry Hill held a particular significance to the artist at a time in her life. Mary’s husband, acclaimed artist Julian Trevelyan, had been commissioned by a collector and friend, John Iddon, to paint a picture of Strawberry Hill for him. Shortly after its completion Julian sadly died and Mary couldn’t part with the painting. Therefore, she painted two herself, one she sold to John and the other is the painting we have for sale.

He enjoyed this activity, he said, because of his 'exquisite appreciation of heads'. This work, Portrait of J. Louis Behrend, is a prime example of his keen attention to detail, as he focuses on his face, with his torso fading into the paper. Also, his gaze directly confronts the viewer, yet is soft. Spencer’s light use of pencil captures his subject’s gentle demeanour. MAKE AN ENQUIRY

The composition is of a vase filled with flowers and foliage, painted over a background of various hues of natural blues and greens. Born in Bristol in 1915, Mary Fedden is renowned for her unique perspective and great talent for finding beauty in the everyday. 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.

The piece is full of colour and character, ranging from blurred swatches of colour to crisp lines of detail to show the delicacy of the bird's feet. Fedden was an artist whose exquisitely executed paintings often take the form of a hybrid between a still life and a landscape. In these, a group of objects fruit, glasses, bottles, even cats – are depicted in fine detail in front of a striking background scene. These intriguing combinations illustrate the depth of vision, both in a figurative and literal sense, which Fedden portrayed in her work. MAKE AN ENQUIRY

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.

Hankey is notable for his paintings of French harbour scenes, figurative subjects and English country life. This painting is a wonderful example of this, as Hankey depicts the small, fishing-port town of Dieppe in France, reflecting the beauty he sees in everyday life. MAKE AN ENQUIRY

His delicate landscapes look back, recalling the tradition of romantic British landscape, realised in soft, hazy hues. Portraiture constituted his main source of income: his early sitters were mainly children but during his career he painted numerous aristocratic ladies, businessmen, politicians, military leaders and academics. These genres are, however, united by Nicholson's continual interest in the effects of light produced by oils - utilising the transparency of oils, Nicholson creates stunning yet subtle effects of darkness, shadow, reflection and illumination.

He formed the habit of spending the summer on a painting trip in various rural locations such as a cottage called St Ives in Kingston near Lewes, Sussex), or in Russian Poland with his wife’s family. His work at this time reflected his first-hand experience with recent French art during his travels on the continent. Oil paintings and watercolours of agricultural scenes of the South Downs or Poland provided motifs with which to explore his concerns with the effects of light and the use of colour. Philip Hendy (later Director of the National Gallery) claimed that Bevan was the first Englishman to use pure colour in the twentieth century and was the ‘real pioneer’ of the modern English school.

The Times’ obituary paid tribute to his exceptional mastery of the watercolour medium: ‘Sir William Russell Flint, RA, who has died at the age of 89, will be chiefly remembered as a watercolourist of remarkable technical skill. Though he painted also in oils and tempera and produced a considerable number of etchings and dry-points, his most characteristic works were watercolour landscapes and figure compositions, elaborately carried out and displaying great virtuosity, in the gradations of a wash and a special manner of enriching its effect by taking advantage of a grained surface paper’.

She stands opposite a Japanese lady in traditional clothing, who looks down at the two dogs in the foreground. The painting is representative of the elements that Henry learned throughout his career as a painter. The loose, expressive brushstrokes indicate the influence of the Impressionists upon Henry’s style. Similarly, the naturalistic use of colour and the idyllic subject matter demonstrate the departure from the saccharine Victorian style of painting, from which Henry and his group sought to remove themselves.

The artists were fascinated by the fishermen’s working life at sea and the everyday life in the harbour and nearby villages.

The morning room, which Nash used as a studio, looked over what became known as the 'Bird Garden' and has been described by Roger Cardinal as 'where it all began' (R.
