  • Charles Cundall (1890-1971)

    The first book to appear on the 20th century British artist Charles Cundall, this publication examines aspects of Cundall work done at home in England, abroad - Cundall made numerous painting trips to the continent, but also to the United States - and during the war. Well illustrated, the book also includes a chronology and a reproduction of a text by William Gaunt dating from the 1960s and commissioned for a book on Cundall that never came to be. Learn More

  • Evelyn Dunbar

    Pallant House Gallery (3 October 2015 - 14 February 2016)"

    Longlisted for the Berger Art History prize 2016

    In January 2013, Dunbar's painting ‘Autumn and the Poet' (1960) appeared on the BBC Antiques Roadshow, leading Ro Dunbar, a relative of the artist, to explore the extraordinary hoard of over 500 paintings, drawings and studies hidden in the attic of her Kent home. The unrecorded works were identified with the help of the artist's nephew Christopher Campbell-Howes... Learn More

  • Frank Brangwyn

    This publication - which has been made possible entirely through the generosity of Tigger Hoare - was prompted by the discovery of a complete set of Brangwyn's Stations of the Cross, painted in oil, which originally hung in St Michael's Abbey, Farnborough. The participation of the Diocese of London has added a dimension which Brangwyn himself would have relished. Although brought up a Catholic, his faith was a strong belief in Christian values rather than an adherence to one particular creed and he told a friend that ‘Life here is nothing without God. The time comes when one has... Learn More

  • Frank Brangwyn

    During his lifetime Brangwyn made large donations of his works to museums in the United Kingdom and abroad, including the Victoria & Albert Museum, the British Museum, the William Morris Gallery, the Albertina in Vienna and the Gruuthuse in Bruges. As a result of this munificence, substantial drawings by Brangwyn, especially his celebrated large sheets in red and black chalk, only rarely appear on the market.
    Milestones in the collecting of Brangwyn drawings include the Christie's sale of William de Belleroche's collection (1961), and Edgar Horn's sale of Edgar Peacock&#... Learn More

  • Alan Sorrell

    Alan Sorrell's early ambition was to be a painter of imaginative narrative pictures, often in the form of mural decorations. In this he was successful, creating throughout his life evocative compositions influenced by much that he had seen of Italian Renaissance painting, but filtered through his own version of a vigorous northern European, English tradition. It is an important aim of this publication to demonstrate that the archaeological and historical ‘reconstruction' drawings and paintings of the later part of his life are also important works of art which, if they were...

  • British Murals & Decorative Painting 1910-1970

    The murals that were produced in this country in the twentieth century remain as one of the great inventive achievements in modern British art. Highly original in their approach to design, balancing varying degrees of modernity or tradition, they demonstrate the creative drive of their makers and contain singular expressions of the aesthetic, personal and social concerns that typify the ages from which they come. Some are celebrations of simple human pleasures, perhaps to decorate a refreshment room, an ocean liner or a dining room.
    Others are intended to be the highest expressions of... Learn More

  • British Murals & Decorative Painting 1920-1960

    British Murals & Decorative Painting 1920-1960 is illustrated with a series of specially commissioned photographs that record some of the least-known but most remarkable murals in Great Britain. The majority of these have never been reproduced in colour before.The book is divided into two sections. Part one seeks to define mural and decorative painting within its historic context. Alan Powers' survey of the major events and significant dates describes the background out of which the mural revival of the early twentieth century emerged and the role played by its main patrons, artists...

  • Victor Moody

    Victor Hume Moody created timeless images of an Arcadian idyll at a time when most artists had turned their backs on the classical tradition. The centuries old heritage of Western art was too inspiring and too valuable for him to simply abandon. Over a working life of nearly 70 years he tirelessly researched and worked to revive traditional painting techniques. At the same time he
    created a unique fusion of classical figure composition and the pastoral English landscape.
    Since Victor Moody died his work has been widely seen and his reputation has steadily risen. The Harris Museum... Learn More
