TRINITY HOUSE PAINTINGS | ART GALLERY COTSWOLDS
THE WORLD TURNS AND HERE WE ARE IN A BRAND NEW YEAR, HOPING AS THE COMING MONTHS UNFOLD WE WILL FIND OURSELVES IN A NEW LANDSCAPE.
We have all had to adapt in the past year personally and professionally. Our business is a personal one, with personal contact whether it be welcoming you to our gallery in the Cotswolds, travelling to your homes, or seeing you around the world at the art fairs…these are our natural habitats.
With the challenge of the past year, we have had to rethink how we can still connect to you in a personal way, and so we find ourselves here.
This is the first of our fortnightly newsletters which will tell you a little bit about what is going on in our art gallery in the Cotswolds and exciting new works which we have managed to find.
So make a cup of tea, even better grab a glass of fizz (forget dry January!) as we give you a flavour of our world in the last couple of weeks.

We have been slowly renovating our art gallery in the Cotswolds. This beautiful building which currently houses our Contemporary and Modern collections, No.35, Broadway. We have transformed the layout into five showrooms with the second floor housing the largest. Featuring a double-height ceiling and Edwardian chandelier in the stairwell it is the perfect space to showcase the quality paintings and sculpture.
ENJOYING OUR NEW ART GALLERY IN THE COTSWOLDS . . .
There are comfortable pockets throughout the whole building to relax with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, view and enjoy the paintings and take in the ambience. We are still tweaking certain aspects of the art gallery in the Cotswolds as we want the space to be a projection of our personality here at Trinity, which is warm and welcoming. The next phase is to develop the exterior of the building and the outbuildings…we will keep you up to date with our ideas as they progress!
DIRECTOR | TRINITY HOUSE
Steven has been involved in the arts industry since he was sixteen. His passion and knowledge of the art world have helped to successfully establish Trinity House as a leading art gallery and consultancy.
Paintings capture a moment, it fascinates me and I feel it is hugely beneficial to understand and delve deeper into the artist and the social and political environment they lived in. In my mind this breathes life into the painting, it creates another dimension, from black and white to colour and gives it life, as we discover the story behind the canvas.
We will be recommending a few fantastic books which will give a fascinating insight into the artists who we have the great pleasure in handling.
THE PRIVATE LIVES OF THE IMPRESSIONISTS
BY SUE ROE
In a vivid and moving narrative, The Private Lives Of The Impressionists shows how the early leaders of the group first met in the Paris studios, working closely together for twenty years.
Painting outdoors, meeting in cafes, they supported each other and shared emotional and financial difficulties.
Defying the hide-bound rules of the salon, they staged joint exhibitions and rebelled against artistic prejudice, moral tyranny and social hierarchy.
Often rejected by their horrified parents, they led volatile and precarious lives: their wives were servants, models, flower-sellers and, although their paintings today sell for millions, they were barely able to support their families.
This intimate, colourful, superbly researched account takes us into their homes as well as their studios and describes their love affairs and arguments, heartaches and dreams as well as their canvases and theories.
Over the years there were divisions and rows, but in the end, this constellation of talent shone through, giving the world a new, exhilarating form of art.
