The Richard Green Gallery is pleased to announce the return of the ‘50 paintings under £50,000’ exhibition, a wonderful opportunity for buyers to create a collection with confidence, to be held in January at 147 New Bond Street, London. Featuring an extensive range of subjects, periods and styles including landscape, portraiture, marine, sporting, still life and genre painting from the seventeenth to the twentieth century, including realist and impressionistic techniques from figuration to abstraction, this exciting exhibition offers the chance to purchase excellent examples by well-known masters at affordable prices from £12,500 to £50,000. Each beautifully framed and in superb condition, this carefully curated selection of paintings derives from stately homes, some deaccessioned from public institutions and others purchased or gifted directly from the artist, with previous owners including Jean Yves Mock, Sir Geoffrey Millais, James Hugh Smith-Barry (1748-1801), Marbury Hall, Cheshire and Francis Seymour, 5th Marquess of Hertford (1812-1884).
The illustrious list of art works includes an elegantly arranged, luminous flower-piece by Antoine Monnoyer, a sensitive and refined portrait of William Eden, 1st Baron Auckland by Tilly Kettle, 1763-4, and a charming scene of canine mischief by the master of the dog portrait, Arthur Wardle, as well as watercolours by Archibald Thorburn, the finest bird painter Britain ever produced. A shimmering, painterly still life of flowers and grapes by Jean-François Raffaelli is paired with a portrait by Paul-César Helleu, epitomising the charm and elegance of the Belle Epoque. A beautiful ‘pochade’ seascape by Sir George Clausen and a stunning domestic interior, a tour de force of Anna Airy’s compositional complexity and bold impressionistic application of paint, exemplify early Modern British art, along with several works by Edward Seago, while Royal Academicians, Mary Fedden, Alan Davie and William Scott represent Post-War painting, the exhibition closing with a vibrant gouache by Bridget Riley. Whether looking to establish or enhance your art collection or simply to find the perfect present, ‘50 paintings under £50,000’ offers a wealth of choice at affordable prices.
