  • By the Reeds

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    We have here a calm summer’s day, the water is still and the air is cool. To the left a boat is anchored, just beyond the reeds. It is easy to imagine the artist, painting this beautiful sight before them, en plein air. The impressionistic style and subtle impasto has created a highly textured effect, and the artist has left small bits of the board exposed.  The clear glassy water beautifully reflects the open skies above, while the richer green colours of the reeds in the forefront pair perfectly with the tree lined background.

    The painting is wonderfully presented in a gilt frame with beaded moulding.

    This distinctly autumnal picture is imbued with a still melancholy. It features bold yet homely colours, tempting us to take an imaginary sniff of the earthly aroma. The bold lines and textured surface stand out within the hand crafted vintage effect frame.

  • The Reader

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    This painting perfectly captures that moment we describe as ‘enjoying one’s own company’. We don’t see the sitter, as perhaps they have been called away, interrupted, but will return shortly to continue reading where they left off. This painting exudes charm and character, and is a reminder of the precious moments we allow ourselves in our busy lives, to have some time to relish peace and quiet, to read or write, and enjoy a period of calm.

    Size: 38 x 47.5 cm (including frame)

    In good vintage condition. Some age spots are visible, which add character and charm to this vintage oil.

  • The Cottage

    Sold

    SOLD

    Free Shipping to UK, Europe and Singapore.

    The overall atmosphere and character of this piece imbues us with thoughts of bright summer days, when everything, including the landscape itself, is full of life and activity. The vitality of the brushstrokes, so many of them large, bold and strong, enlivens the cottages and their surroundings by conveying a sense of movement – the leaves on the trees and the blades on the grass flutter lightly in the summer air.

    Beautifully presented in a uniquely designed and complementary frame, this lovely oil painting transports us to a place far away, but yet somewhere homely and familiar, where we can put our feet up and watch the squirrels busying themselves running up the trees.

    Size: 30 x 35cm (including frame)

  • The Fishing Boats

    Sold

    The painterly technique in this work effectively conveys the spirit and movement of the sea and sky. Vibrant colours, and swift thick brushstrokes are the key features in this dramatic coastal landscape of fishing boats and bouys.

    A bright gilt frame with beaded moulding complements the palette of the painting excellently. This impressionistic and textured work of art will be a stand out feature in any interior.

    Size: 33 x 39cm (including frame)

    In good vintage condition.

  • Pasture

    Sold

    Many of us have fallen into a way of life that suffers from too much intensity, stimulation and distraction. Work is frantic, our email inboxes are clogged, and there is hardly time to reflect on anything.

    This beautifully calm and serene landscape with grazing sheep allows us the chance to resume contact with a more solitary, thoughtful self that otherwise eludes us. It draws out our peaceful side and encapsulates a value of gentleness. The unpretentious simplicity of sheep nestled within a cool autumnal meadow encourages a modest, tender hearted happiness, far away from the stresses of life.

    This confident yet sensitively hand-painted oil is wonderfully presented in a well suited gilt frame, and its classic style would fit in well with any interior. In excellent vintage condition.

    Size: 24 x 29cm (including frame)

  • The Clan

    Sold

    ‘-SOLD-

    This quotidien scene of simple objects is arranged as a still life of copper, bronze and silver vessels. There is no frippery to this picture, no gesture overplayed.

    Yet the physical solidarity and surety of the objects contrast starkly with the negative space and void beyond – the table and background seem to merge into an abstract hollow. This invites us to open our minds to wider meanings, and offers us the chance to think freely and more metaphorically.

    As opposed to just static receptacles, we could imagine this grouping as a family – perhaps as three siblings in a row. The two elder siblings perched on either end, standing tall and playing by the rules, while the youngest sibling in the middle, creative and seeking attention, playfully falls over, breaking the formal composition of the picture. Yet somehow the trio remain harmonious despite the disruption.

    As objects, they share similarities in their matter and purpose, but are still able to hold their own. Much like siblings, they are bonded by connections and similarities, but remain unique individuals with idiosyncratic characteristics worth discovering.

  • Summer Skies

    Sold

    ‘-SOLD-

    Despite its small size, this painting does not seem to be at all constrained by its borders. An expansive and panoramic view beckons us, and tiny details within the pastoral landscape invite us in to take a closer look. The artist has used swift and sweeping strokes of colour to paint the atmospheric sky, while maintaining a more restrained hand when painting the finer details of the tree-lined fields and sheep below.

    This beautiful composition is imbued with a sense of peace and tranquillity, while still conveying a sense of the passing of time. Its cool palette, well laid out composition and compact size make it a stunning yet practical addition to both classic and modern interiors.

  • The Holiday

    Sold

    SOLD

    This piece is most certainly one of our favourites. Delicately painted in creamy pastel tones, this textured piece is a holiday on canvas. Capturing a quiet back street in Continental Europe, the loose and painterly handling of the artist’s brush echoes the shifting colours and patterns of French Impressionism. A perfect mnemonic for a previous European vacation, or better still, a prompt to make the journey once again.

    Size: 46.5 x 36.5cm (including frame)

    In excellent vintage condition.
