Such an unusual and interesting sculptural piece by Bill Belcher who made art in boxes. This 1966 example is called Belfry and is very different to his usual work due to it's large size. Black is such a great colour and very en vogue in the world of interiors at the moment.
Art is all about simplicity, a few lines, a few swirls... But to make it work you have to be good. And the semi-abstracted realism of Norma Jameson is beyond good.
This is a great example of a 1950's image by an artist whose individual style is easily recognised. John Preston Goddard took simple images and landscapes adding his own twist to the subject matter.
This is one of the earliest works by the collaborative artists Cornford & Cross.
I firmly believe that artists produce some of their finest work at Art School when their mind can range freely without the need to impress or be commercial.
This fascinating piece from their time studying shows all of these facets.
Doreen Heaton was a young art school student at Corsham College of Art when she met and fell in love with the charismatic Polish painter, Peter Potworowski.
Peter (a veteran of the first world war Uhlan Lancers fighting against the Germans, a student of Ferdinand Leger in Paris and a member of the Capist group (Polish colourists) of artists) arrived in Britain in 1943 after the fall of Poland. In 1949 he was made professor of painting at Bath by the brilliant head, Clifford Ellis. There he worked along side the likes of William Scott and Peter Lanyon.
Within a few months of Peter's arrival Doreen had moved into his apartment and when he moved to Pickford it is assumed she accompanied him there. In the 1950’s Doreen and Peter travelled in the Mediterranean, both painting extensively. In 1958, Peter was invited by the Polish government to come back and be Professor of painting in Poznan for 1 year, but they never left, staying until Peter died in 1962.
