Landscapes

E. Grieg Hall : Thirlmere From The Dam : Watercolour : 1982 : 37cm × 27cm

One of many he created of the Lake District and North Wales.

J. H. de Berg : Winter Landscape : Oil on Wood Panel : 20'th century : 60cm × 49cm

After the style of Frederik Marinus Kruseman, this painting might have been created for a Christmas card, and is of a much higher quality than many such derivative images.

J. H. de Berg : Winter Landscape


John Foulger (1942 - 2007) : Loch Lomnond : Oil on Board : 1985 : 25cm × 20cm

A very private artist, this is typical of his often bleak and stormy landscapes.

Joop Smits (1938 - 2014) : Mountain Lake : Oil on Board : 20'th century : 23cm × 17cm

A small but very detailed image from this now collectable artist.


Keith McMean : Packhorse Bridge : Watercolour : 20'th century : 29cm × 21cm

One of half a dozen images sold during his first 'one-man exhibition' in Whitehaven.

Robert Ritchie (1934 - 2002) : Calby Beck Bridge, Duddon Valley, Cumbria : Oil on Board : 20'th century : 33cm × 22cm

Another painting of the Lake District, from this self-taught artist.

Seascapes & Coastal Scenes

Frank Hider (1861 - 1933) : On The North Devon Coast : Oil on Canvas : late 19'th - early 20'th century : 50cm × 29cm

A typical scene from this prolific artist, with his trademark strong greens and oranges, and lots of detail in the waves.

Frank Hider : On The North Devon Coast


Other Images

Laureuy(?) Pauchard : Fashion Drawing : Pencil & Chalk on Paper : 20'th - 21'st century : 24cm × 32cm

Purchased in May 2007 from one of the many Bouquinistes on the Quai de Montebello and Quai de la Tournelle in Paris, I have no idea if this is genuinely as old as the fashion it shows, or is a modern design based on older ideas; I assume the numerous staple holes would have held cloth samples in place.


Unknown : Woman In Blue Kimono : Oil on Board : early 21'st century : 39cm × 49cm

Similar to the paintings of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema and John William Godward, this is technically perfect and probably from one of the studios that churn out reproductions of classical images, but even the gallery I purchased it from knew nothing of its origins.


Joseph Smedley (1922 - ) : Pegasus : Gouache on Paper : 1940s : 36cm × 42cm

A stunning Art Deco design whose brilliant yellows seem almost luminous.

Joseph Smedley : Pegasus
