On-Line Gallery | Staithes Group and Staithes Art Club Pictures currently in stock
We are always keen to buy etchings and mezzotints by Thomas Barrett. He was the 'Founding Father' of the Group, encouraging Laura Johnson and Harold Knight to visit the village and to paint there.
We only choose to by relatively early examples by Bowen, painted when he was still using a strong and undiluted pallette.
I challenge anyone to find me ANY artist, from any period, who can paint sun and shadow on the landscape and wind and moving clouds as well as Arthur Friedenson did! (Tom won't be pleased with me for doing this, but their are advantages to his being a technophobe - he mightn't see my challenge!)
Works from Harold Knight's Staithes period rarely come on the market.We are delighted to have four examples, two from one of his and Laura's visits to the artist's colony of Laren in Holland made while they were living in the little hamlet of Roxby on the moors above Staithes. It was in Laren that he and Laura became interested in painting interiors.
We are always interested in good Yorkshire paintings by Terry.N.B. We check all auctions.
