TRINITY HOUSE PAINTINGS

TRINITY HOUSE SUMMER NEWSLETTER 2021

Well the heat arrived, we wanted it, but I’m not sure we were all prepared for it! For a view of cool water and parasols, we head to Cannes in Southern France where this beautiful, pointillist piece by Jean Vollet is set.

Jean Vollet creates a world of paradise. The influence of Seurat, combined with Renoir and Pissaro, are visible in the paintings of Vollet, and their balance and equilibrium, their serenity, are typically French. There is a precise technique in Vollet’s landscapes. Here, a multitude of tiny, blue and red coloured dots are blended to create movement and depth. Rather than mixing the colours on the palette beforehand, the close proximity of small dots of colour seems to blend in the viewer’s eye. His creative originality is demonstrated by his ability to combine tones of colour: here he mixes blue, red, yellow, orange and white to reproduce the vibrancy of a summer’s day, shimmering with colour and light. Vollet cleverly has blended the pointillist techniques of Seurat with the carefully applied study of light of the Impressionists, creating a sun-filled landscape filled with joy.

Born in Montayral, France on 29 June 1935, Jean Vollet studied art at the École d’Arts Graphiques in Bordeaux before moving to Paris in 1962. There he devoted his time entirely to painting and began to display his work in 1964 at the Salon des Independants. He has since successfully exhibited in Paris, New York, Tokyo, Beverly Hills, and Cannes.

If you are venturing out to the Cotswolds, do come and take full advantage of our air-conditioned galleries and a cool glass of champagne whilst viewing this beautiful work.

AUDIO CLIP

“Broadway and much of the land about it are in short the perfection of the old English rural tradition” – Henry James

Henry James, an American writer who settled in England, was a frequent visitor to the Cotswolds. James described Broadway in 1889 as a ‘very old English village, lying amongst its meadows and hedges, in the very heart of the country, in the hollow of the green hills of Worcestershire.’
The village is a centre for the arts steeped in history with a unique heritage of a world-famous colony of artists, writers and musicians collectively known as the Broadway Colony who worked and visited the village during the late 19th century.

SUMMER BRINGS MUCH TO CELEBRATE;

UPCOMING EXHIBITION: MARCEL DYF SEPTEMBER 2021

Marcel Dyf was born on 7th October 1899 in Paris. He is an artist celebrated for his paintings of figures, flowers and still life subjects and his beautifully atmospheric landscapes. These he executed with his distinctive loose style that imbues the subjects with such a natural feel. He exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Francais, The Salon d’Automme and the Salon des Tuileries.

In September, we are excited to exhibit online a selection of oil paintings from this widely collected artist who was admired and recognised as a disciple of the Impressionists.

EXPLORE MARCEL DYF

Celebrated since the 1960s, David Hockney has forged a unique style that blends Pop, Cubism and Realism. Over the years his practice has evolved in time with new technologies, and his many talents include painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, stage design, and digital image-making.

We have had the privilege of handling his work and are delighted to share with you this vibrant etching ‘My Pool and Terrace’. To give you an insight into this fascinating artist, ‘Hockney’s Pictures’ is a stunning volume, charting almost fifty years of an extraordinary artist’s creativity across a range of media. ‘Hockney’s Pictures’ is the definitive retrospective of one of the most popular artists of the twentieth century.

“HOCKNEY’S PICTURES PAPERBACK – ILLUSTRATED, 18 DEC. 2006” DAVID HOCKNEY

The pieces are selected and organized thematically by David Hockney himself, tracking his lifelong experiments in ways of looking and depicting.

Including more than 300 illustrations, accompanied by quotes from the artist that illuminate the passionate thinking behind the work, ‘Hockney’s Pictures’ shows the evolution and diversity of Hockney’s paintings, drawings, watercolors, prints, and photography, confirming and reinforcing his position as one of the world’s most popular living artists.
