Blog Week 17
We are always acquiring new and exciting artwork but the last couple of weeks have seen us source some of the finest works we have ever had the honour to offer. With visits around the region last week visiting the studios of some of our most sought after artists and viewing some fine private collections has culminated in many incredible paintings now being on show in the gallery.
Original Art from Geoffrey Key
It was great to meet up with Geoffrey Key last week and discuss with him the fabulous paintings that he has been working on. The most recent works have included a return to some of his most sought after subject matters which include his equestrian and harlequin series.
Such is the demand for these subject matters, we were thrilled to acquire a very large and stunning painting from this series which is one of the most breathtaking examples you will ever see. This incredible piece is accompanied by two beautiful landscape paintings which are also classic Key and are available to view in the gallery now.
New from James Lawrence Isherwood
Following on the Northern Art theme, we have also been blessed with some fantastic new works from the late James Lawrence Isherwood this week. Coming from both the Isherwood family and a distinguished private collection, some great examples are now on show in the gallery and online here. With Isherwood’s paintings continuing to sell every week I am sure that these new pieces will not hang around for long.
The new collection includes some classic Isherwood subject matter along with some extremely rare paintings. Perhaps the rarest is an incredible very early watercolour of Wigan Pier, one his most sought after subjects and a great addition to any collection.
View all available Isherwood paintings in our Isherwood gallery here.
Cityscapes from Tom Butler
Moving on to the more contemporary artists, our collectors have been loving the collage work from Tom Butler in recent months and we were thrilled this week to obtain our very first original paintings from Butler.
Two fabulous original works featuring both London and New York accompany his latest limited edition print, Silver City, which only two weeks after it’s launch is already nearing sell out status.
Rare Editions from Todd White
Todd White’s latest limited edition prints ‘Tainted Love’ and ‘Venice’ are selling quickly with only a handful of ‘Tainted Love’ still available to purchase from the worldwide edition of 135.
Along with the new editions, we have also recently purchased a number of previously sold out and unavailable limited editions including a pair of rare ‘On Again Off Again’ and ‘My Favourite Three Words’ editions along with the incredibly rare duo of ‘Sleep with Me’ and ‘Furious Desires’. As sold out editions, please note that we only have one of each of these editions which are available on a strictly first come first served basis.
