  • Raymond Sheppard

    Raymond Sheppard showed an early interest in both art and nature and aged 15 enrolled in the Elementary Course of John Hassall's Correspondence Art School where he was complimented on "his remarkable understanding of the correctness of drawing”.
    Sheppard's talent for drawing wildlife gained recognition with the success of the first of his three books for The Studio Publications How to Draw Series. How to Draw Birds, published in 1940, not only ran to four reprints during WW2 but a further two reprints afterwards in 1948 and 1955 - a remarkable feat for a 27 year old artist.... Learn More

  • Walter Bonner Gash

    • Published on the occasion of an exhibition at the Manor House Museum and Alfred East Art Gallery (19 February - 2 April 2011)

    GashWhile Gash's oeuvre is full of the period charm that might be expected from the decades that bridge either side of the Edwardian era, his pictures consistently offer something more substantial. His genre paintings bring to mind those of Charles Spencelayh but they display a less predictable and less laboured narrative. As a landscape painter he painted en plein air with relish; he excelled in themedium of pastel. According to his daughter, portrai... Learn More

  • Archibald Ziegler

    Ziegler was born in London in 1903 and studied at the Central School of Arts and Crafts. He subsequently (from 1927 to 1930) studied at the Royal College of Art under William Rothenstein, whom he recalled as ‘a lively and inspiring Principal'. The late 1920s was a rich period to attend the RCA : the likes of Bawden, Ravilious, Mahoney, Sorrell, Bliss and Freedman had already completed their formative studies and, in what was to prove the golden age of the Royal College of Art, their influence can be seen in Ziegler's early work. Later on the influence of his fellow Jewish artist... Learn More

  • 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

  • John McKenzie

    It is rare for a creative artist to work in the privacy of his garden shed, in a challenging medium, and almost entirely for his own pleasure, but such a one was the slate-carver, John McKenzie. His day job was working as a steward in the Petty Officers' Mess aboard H.M.S. Condor, the Fleet Air Arm Training School at Arbroath, Angus, on the east coast of Scotland.
    McKenzie's work is totally unpretentious, but it reveals a cultivated familiarity with the carvings of ancient Babylon and Mesopotamia, as well as classical mythology, suggesting that as a boy he had haunted Kelving... Learn More

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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
