Gordon Howes (1938-2013)
American Studies / £19.36 - £39.31
A collection of fine gouache artworks by scientist and artist Gordon Howes, depicting tropical fish and American landscapes. The impressive level of detail, in particular to the fish studies is indicative of Howes scientific knowledge. This clearly impacts his artistic style, visible in his tendency towards photorealism.

We are pleased to present a pair of theatrical character studies by the great watercolourist John Massey Wright RWS (1777-1866), depicting the villain and the hero of a play (most likely from Shakespeare).  John Massey Wright was born in Pentonville, London, 1777 to an organ builder.

Rowland Suddaby (1912-1972)
A superb mid 20th century painting by the highly acclaimed British artist Rowland Suddaby depicting a dramatic coastline. Suddaby has captured the intensity of this jagged landscape through the use of hurried brushwork - indicating that this was painted en plein air. Further shadow and details have been added in black ink - again the mark making is energetic and instinctive, as Suddaby tries to capture the scene before the light changes. Multihued clouds on the horizon suggest an approaching storm rolling off the sea.
