An interesting little drawing came in yesterday dated 1945. Two characters, a devil and a clown, from the Strauss operetta Eine Nacht in Venedig (A Night in Venice) which played at the Cambridge Theatre, London in 1944. A fascinating little drawing and, as usual, unsigned! The Art world can be so frustrating!
This fabulous 1950's expressionist beach scene is by Tony Bartl, a Czech refugee who came to England in 1947. He was heavily influenced by expressionist painters of the inter war period. His work is held by Lincoln Art Gallery,
