An eccentric view of the English countryside

Charles Duranty (1919-2006) was a poet who worked for a publisher, a job that he sometimes found a bit boring. So he set up an easel in his office and painted what he called “imagined landscapes”, inspired by the East Anglian countryside where he had worked as a land boy during WW2.

His landscapes are typically open countryside populated with tiny figures and steam engines.
Many of the titles are quite wonderful. Scroll down or go straight to his page for more details

Fish women and albatross men - more works by John Bellany

Rare works by Scotland’s favourite artist John Bellany, featuring classic images from the artist’s striking iconography has come to us courtesy of a close relative of the artist. They include a powerful ink drawing, titled Witch, three artist’s proof lithographs and three larger format limited edition prints.

Colourful churches rediscovered

We have just retrieved more than a dozen of Stan Smith’s lively watercolours and sketches of English country churches, from Saxon to Victorian, which make John Piper’s work look rather dull and boring in comparison. We have included them in an online exhibition together with some churches painted by three other leading lights of the gallery.
