Blog Week 34

With only a few weeks to go until the Frogman’s next visit to the gallery on 19th September, we were delighted to launch his two 2019 special edition show frogs yesterday.

The two special releases are the fabulous ‘Royal Mint’ and ‘Sovereign’, both edition variations of previously released popular sculptures and available exclusively in the UK to coincide with his UK visit. Both editions are in exclusive patina colours and make a stunning pair.

The largest of the two sculpters is ‘Royal Mint’, available now at £999 and from a very low edition of only 50 worldwide. We expect this to be an incredibly popular statement piece so don’t delay if you’ve fallen in love already.

The accompanying sculpture is the super cute ‘Sovereign’ which is an edition variation of the popular ‘Cosmos’ bronze but finished in a wonderful gold patina. This sculpture is available from and edition of just 125 worldwide and priced at only £279.

Both sculptures are available individually but we also have a small number of matching edition numbered sets for anybody who doesn’t want to break up the dream team. As numbers are strictly limited, pre ordering before the exhibition is recommended to avoid disappointment.

Sweets & Treats from Kerry Darlington

Yesterday also saw the release of the latest, and most hotly anticipated, unique edition from the imaginative Kerry Darlington.

Taken from a worldwide edition of 195, this Charlie and the Chocolate Factory themed edition includes all the 3D detail that has made Kerry Darlington so popular over the last ten years. Again with demand so high and supply so limited, contact the gallery now or click here to secure your copy.

Fabian Perez unveils portrait at Althorp

Last weekend was a milestone moment for artist Fabian Perez who had the great honour of unveiling a stunning portrait commissioned by Earl Spencer of his wife, Lady Spencer.

The presentation of the painting was undertaken at the Althorp Estate to great critical acclaim. It is an honour for us to have worked with such a talented artist for over a decade and we look forward to welcoming him back to the gallery next year. In the meantime, we have a number of stunning original paintings by Fabian Perez in the gallery now along with a great collection of limited edition prints so we do encourage you to call in and take a look in person.

New Original from Geoffrey Key

The latest original painting available from Geoffrey Key is also now available to view online or in the gallery and is the fabulous ‘Mill Town’.

Executed in 2003, this superb example is featured in Geoffrey’s ‘Signature’ book, a testament to the artist’s affection for this particular painting. This amazing piece will be joined next week by another earlier work by the artist so we do encourage collectors to call in and take a look in person.

Theodore Major

Finally this week, the works of the late Appley Bridge artist Theodore Major continue to be the hot ticket in the gallery as small numbers of paintings are slowly being released from the artist’s estate in anticipation of a major new book by Michael Howard scheduled for release in early 2020.

Two original oil paintings are currently available to view in the gallery including ‘Men at Night’ featured below. If you are interested in purchasing a rare Major oil painting, do contact us at the gallery and we would be happy to discuss your requirements.

We also had the great pleasure to deliver one of Major’s masterpieces to a client home this week and were allowed to take a quick snap of it in situation to share. It is always a delight to see where the paintings end up so if you have a piece that you have purchased that you would like to share, please do send us an email with a photograph and would be happy to showcase them on our collectors homes segment of the website.
