Todd White Exhibition 6th October
Our first Todd White exhibition and personal appearance since before the pandemic is almost a month away so we hope that you are as excited as we are to welcome him back.
There will be a number of new limited edition releases for the exhibition and we have also been sourcing some rare and previously sold out limited edition prints for the show as well.
The rare editions include edition number 1 of the awesome ‘Dead Man’s Party’ and edition number 2 of the beautiful ‘White Tie Affair’. If you like the idea of owning such a special low edition, do not hesitate and contact the gallery without delay.
If you are not already on the mailing list and would like an invitation to this fantastic exhibition and opportunity to meet Todd in person, contact the gallery now to be part of it.
L S Lowry Editions
Amongst our wonderful new arrivals of artwork this month are some incredible and rare signed limited edition prints by the late L S Lowry.
As Lowry’s editions continue to appreciate and are snapped up quickly by collectors, sourcing good quality examples of the best editions is tough. With this in mind, we are especially delighted to have been able to acquire perhaps the only example of Francis Terrace, Salford currently on the market.
Produced from an incredibly low signed edition of just 75, Francis Terrace is one of Lowry’s exquisite lithograph editions rather than the normal reproductions. As a lithograph, the original was produced directly onto a lithographic stone forming the master for each lithograph print, essentially making each example unique and explaining why they are often referred to as ‘original lithographs’.
In beautiful condition and now preserved with UV protective glass, this is a truly rare gem and a treat for any Lowry collector.
The second of the Lowry editions just in the gallery is one of his classic and sought after subject matters featuring Huddersfield. Incorporating all of the elements of the industrial north which made his work so popular, it is a truly iconic image.
The final Lowry edition entitled The Lonely House is a window into the artist’s pysche at the time. Although many of his most well known works feature the bustling industrial streets, he also painted a series of starker paintings including desolate landscapes and bleak seascapes which reflected the loneliness and suffering that was also a feature of much of the artist’s life.
The Lonely House is a fine example of this genre and taken from a lower edition this many with just 500 signed examples produced. All of these three pieces are available to view at the time of writing but given the scarcity of each are unlikely to be available for long.
New Editions from Chris Chapman
Chris Chapman’s limited edition prints continue to sell out upon release with such small editions of just 35 per piece. Two new releases are available in the gallery now include the comical Fruit Face and Fraud Monet painting entitled Monet & Merlot.
WANTED – Rare Frogman Sculptures
We have a number of collectors searching for our rare exclusive Frogman releases Josephine and Clementine. Both of these beautiful bronze owl sculptures were released as limited editions of only 15 each and now international collectors who were not lucky enough to secure one are scouring the globe in the hope of purchasing one. If you have an example of either of these sculptures and would like to sell it or part exchange it for another piece of art, please do contact us at the gallery.
The latest Mr Brainwash silkscreen edition is now available in the gallery and is a stunner. Queen Marilyn is from a small edition of just 95 signed copies and is certainly Warhol inspired with the Brainwash treatment.
