Well where has the year gone? I don't know about you but the year has totally flown by and soon we will be celebrating the arrival of 2018. I wonder what the New Year will bring? It is a great time to reflect. In doing so we ask ourselves about the highs and lows of the present year. The highs surely has to include our two nonogenarians who bought paintings this year, both lovely people and we do hope to see them again soon. Also on this list must include the large numbers of people who have purchased the work of Clive Madgwick this year. We have sold around 40 works since the turn of 2017 and they are still selling well. So a big thank you to all the Madgwick lovers out there. On the low side, I haven't been too well lately and have been into hospital. Not just any hospital, but the 'great Addenbrookes Hospital' They are fixing me up and so soon I hope this will become a high point for 2018! There aren't too many other low moments but I do find it exasperating when folk leave a review on trip advisor about our gallery. Firstly, we don't subscribe to tripadvisor, secondly we are not an attraction or a 'thing to do'. But nevertheless some people seem to think that leaving bad reviews is a necessity. One kind fellow suggested he would like my business to fail, well what a lovely thing to say. Another wrote 3 bad reviews in one day because he was so mad he had been refused entry. Oh dear, surely I must let in all the time wasters, rogues, vagabonds and nasty people to ruin each and every day according to him. Nope, that won't be happening, we only let in people with a purpose and those we want to. People with a real interest in buying quality art. It is our prerogative. We are a high quality gallery and it will stay that way. If we allow everybody to come in we will become a 'browsing shop for the general public' and that I am afraid is not what we are. I am personally looking forward to the New Year and may 2018 be happy and successfulRead More

Due to the continued success of selling works by Cecil Kennedy we now have one new painting that has recently arrived. The work is called A Spring Bouquet. Measuring 20 x 16 inches the canvas is in wonderful condition and housed in the original frame from the 1960's. A great painting. We also have one new work by artist Harold Clayton called Flowers in a White Marble Vase which is dated from 1963. The painting measures 18 1/2 x 22 inches. Both of these charming works are ready to hang. These would make ideal birthday, anniversary or Christmas presents when you might be stumped what to buy!

The Famous Old House Gallery is now showing 17 paintings by this ever popular Suffolk artist. The latest to arrive are three great ones. We have a small painting dating from 1975 of Boxford Church looking from Butchers lane. There is the original price ticket on the reverse showing £36! I'm afraid we will need rather more than this princely sum today showing what a lovely investment these paintings have become. The second painting is a much larger scene of Honfleur Harbour in France. I have to say the colours are so alive it could have been painted yesterday and there is an enormous amount of detail in the scene including up to 50 people and around 7 boats. We have the original receipt from a gallery in East Sussex when the painting was last sold as a retirement gift in 1999. And lastly we have an 'Old Farm Barn' scene beautifully painted with a number of Cows in a rather wet field, dating back to 1981. So if you are looking for that elusive Clive Madgwick painting maybe we can help out. They do make great gifts for that special occasion be it birthday, retirement or just to surprise someone. See the Modern British section of our website to see all 17.Read More

We also have one titled 'Country Games' which measures 32 x 36 inches. The smallest we have is a sweet little painting called 'In the Orchard' measuring 8 x 10 inches.

Jules Rene Herve was born in 1887 and lived until 1981 and his impressionistic style is widely collected all over the world. With prices from under £1,600 up to £7,500 these are affordable pieces of French art by a hugely popular artist. See the European section of our website to view the full details.Read More
