Liss Llewellyn are delighted to present ‘Autumn New Works’.
In this, our latest announcement of new acquisitions, we are thrilled to offer for sale a selection of museum-quality works, sourced from artists’ estates and private collections.
The selection features a number of striking portraits, including David Jagger’s (1891-1958) The Silk Scarf (a portrait of film and stage actress Irene Dineley), an early Stanley Spencer (1891-1959) portrait of his artist brother, Gilbert, as well as a sensitive portrait by Hilda Carline (1889-1950) of her mother, Anne, in profile, shortly after Anne herself had taken up painting. Other works show recreational activities – or apparatus relating to them, such as John Bulloch Souter’s (1890-1972) Still Life of Fishing Nets, Evelyn Dunbar’s (1906-1960) illustration for a gardening manual, or David Evans’ (1929-1988) sprawling watercolour of the Natural History Museum in London.
Evans’ work is among a number of postwar British works to feature, and this group also includes Kenneth Rowntree’s (1915-1997) playful picture of Notre Dame Cathedral, as well as Frank Auerbach’s (1931-) etched portrait of fellow artist and printmaker, Jake Tilson.
