Mrs. R.J. Sainsbury is the title of this 1940-41 portrait by British artist Wyndham Lewis. I had gone off into a side corridor from the main spaces at this point.
Close by are works by the same artist, Stanley Spencer. Landscape With Magnolia, Odney Club is from 1938.
Marsh Meadows, Cookham was done in 1943.
Here we have a view of the garden courtyard from above.
Two portraits are side by side. Both date to 1917 and are by the same artist, British painter Augustus John. They even have the same title: A Canadian Soldier.
Today I finish with a sculpture that always reminds me of Tolkien. It feels like Orc armour. Jacob Epstein created Torso From The Rock Drill from 1913-16.
Wonderful. It is nice that you are able to take your time and really look at the art. I so miss going to the Galleries around Tucson.ReplyDelete
I don't think I tell you enough how much I enjoy your blog. Thank You.
You have a good range of British artists. I can't wait to get back into an art gallery again.ReplyDelete
Great choices as always.ReplyDelete
The courtyard is an inviting place. Come sit and ponder it seems to say.

The sculpture does have a fantasy like aspect.ReplyDelete
Such a contrast in the 40's art.ReplyDelete
I like the way you contrast the courtyard angles with the magnolias and the marshland. Excellent.ReplyDelete
