With the gallery shut and our activities necessarily circumscribed, we thought it was a good time to sort through our racks and find drawings and watercolours that, for one reason or another, have not seen the light of day. This online exhibition brings together a group of drawings which celebrate British landscape of every form, this selection includes works from the seventeenth through to the nineteenth centuries and encompasses early topographical views, spontaneous plein air studies and fantastical views. We all hope that this exhibition offers you some distraction and sincerely hope that good prospects are just around the corner.
Amongst them, many priced well under £20,000, are works by the artists of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, who made Britain the leading school of landscape painting. The exhibition includes works by Thomas Gainsborough, John Linnell, Cornelius Varley, William Mulready and John Constable. The selection of four Constable drawings is particularly exciting, of them, two are remarkably dated on two consecutive days in October 1817 made on two consecutive pages of a sketchbook, they have been brought back together here for the first time.
We hope that drawings grouped together here offer something for collectors at a range of levels with opportunities to acquire some rare and interesting works by significant figures at tempting prices.
Because of the current situation the drawings are not available to be viewed in the gallery, but we are happy to supply condition reports, additional photographs and descriptions. And we look forward to welcoming you back to the gallery in better times.
Please call or email us if you have any questions.
