Sir Jacob Epstein’s ‘Tulips’ from the collection of Gone With The Wind star, Vivien Leigh. Vivien was a passionate collector and patron, and more than twenty artworks are included in Sotheby’s September sale of her collection, including works by William Nicholson, Harold Gilman and John Piper. As she travelled the world – to Australia, to Ceylon (Sri Lanka), to Algiers in the midst of World War II, and to Hollywood – she took her favourite paintings with her to adorn the walls of her hotel and dressing rooms. #VivienAtSothebys #VivienLeigh #JacobEpstein
Jetting off from #Heathrow this summer? Recognised as one of the country's foremost living ‘naïve’ painters, Bryan Pearce’s on-going re-examination of familiar #views and #landmarks offers a profound, extraordinary experience of #England. Pearce’s artistic developments, his simple renditions of space, colour and light, evolve from a sophisticated understanding of #composition. In this synthesis of imagination and reality, he paints the world as he commands it. In this painting from 1970, he turns his hand to Europe's busiest airport. To be offered as part of our Made in Britain sale in #London in September.#SothebysModBrit #MadeinBritain #BryanPearce #StIves #Planespotting
