Blog Week 27
Despite the sunshine making a welcome return this week and the lure of Wimbledon on the television, the serious art collectors have still been out in force again this week. James Lawrence Isherwood has continued to be a big hit from far and wide with a lucky couple picking their favourite painting to be shipped over to Philadelphia in the USA – a truly international Wigan artist.
As well as several of Isherwood’s paintings moving on to wonderful new homes, three new acquisitions have also been made this week from a long standing private collection and will be on show in the next week or so. We are so pleased with these new previously unseen paintings, we have shown a sneak preview of ‘School Street, Wigan’ as a little taster.
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by Kerry Darlington
The hottly anticipated latest release from Kerry Darlington has also come into stock this week after a few leaked images of the progress of the painting in the preceeding weeks. ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’ follows on from Kerry’s previous sold out editions, many of which are now changing hands on the secondary market at a premium to their original issue prices.
We are delighted to have been able to secure two copies of this in demand edition so if you would like to own one, please do let us know asap to ensure that we still have it.
Original Paintings by Andrei Protsouk
Demand for original works by US based artist Andrei Protsouk continues also with two original paintings selling upon arrival this week from a new collection of artworks. With Protsouk’s larger paintings fetching tens of thousands, these new smaller paintings, which are available for less than £1000 each, are proving a big hit. We still have three small originals available so do click here to see the work of this exciting figurative artist.
