Well it is Easter...hasn't the first three months of 2018 gone fast....almost as fast as we have been working on acquiring new works by Clive Madgwick to satisfy the demand from the local community and from farther afield! Clive's fan base stretches overseas and we have clients wanting specific subjects from right around the globe. Of course, in the USA his work is still considered 'fine art'. There are some stand out works from the new arrivals, one is a very nice 18 x 30 inches painting of the Water Meadows in Sudbury! Yes, I did say that, and yes it does have water in the scene, a large work and beautifully painted, in perfect condition. We have the original sales receipt from 1991. The second stand out work is a 20 x 30 inches painting of Long Melford Green & Holy Trinity Church in evening glow, a superb painting dating from 1990. We have also just acquired a lovely early watercolour of the High Street, Lavenham, dating from 1971, it still has the original frame so this is a real piece of nostalgia and comes with a newspaper cutting too. If you live in Bildeston then you may like the painting we have of the Market Square, this one measures 12 x 18 inches; or maybe you might be tempted with a snow scene, we have a great one of Westminster in London measuring 20 x 30 inches and another with Pheasants by an old gate. All up we have over thirty works in stock and we are open all through the long bank holiday weekend. So why not pop in and take a look?Read More

Edouard Cortes was a French post impressionist painter who became famous during the 1950's and 1960's for his Parisian paintings. He is known as 'Le Poete Parisien de la Peinture' or 'The Parisian Poet of Painting' because of his diverse paintings in a variety of weather and night settings. He was born in 1882 and lived a long life passing away in 1969. In the book by gallery owner, David Klein, Cortes is quoted as saying ' Art, literature & music is the bridge that spans time, love, hate, peace, war, beliefs, and whatever else there is that divides people....Art is the essence that really matters as time goes by'. We are therefore extremely proud to display his works in the gallery and presently we are handling the sale of five wonderful paintings. We have an early work from 1905 of Porte St Martin, a later work of the same scene, a work depicting the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Elysees, plus a charming pair of small paintings showing the Place de la Republique and Boulevard St Denis. This small pair and the scene of the Champs Elysees with the George V metro in view (from 1937) are extremely sought after because of their size. All five paintings are beautifully framed and ready to hang. Our gallery also stocks a fine selection of paintings by Eugene Galien-Laloue and Antoine Blanchard so if Parisian scenes tick your box then we are a must visit. Come to leafy Long Melford in Suffolk right on the border with Essex for a little bit of Olde world English charm. Please visit and go to the European section for our full selection of French paintings.

The Arc De Triomphe & Champs Elysees by Edouard Cortes

We have always been very privileged to handle works by the artist Cecil Kennedy. He is regarded as one of Britain's finest 20th century painters of detailed floral still life subjects. His wife would arrange the flowers in fine vases and then Cecil would set about capturing what he saw onto canvasses in incredible and meticulous detail. His work has always been in high demand and his paintings are therefore in collections all over the world. So we are very fortuitous indeed to have four beautiful examples of his work on display in our gallery and for sale at this current time. Two canvasses are a good size 20 x 16 inches but we also have two larger works, one of 30 x 25 inches and the largest being 36 x 28 inches. Without doubt, if you are a collector of fine art and like floral arrangements then these four examples are a must see and you never know you might even be tempted to purchase one and be the proud owner of a Cecil Kennedy original painting! We also stock fine floral works by Harold Clayton and Marcel Dyf so we have a real choice for any discerning buyer. Check out the Modern British section of our website for more details go to

Snow & Ice, St Benet’s Abbey, Norfolk by Edward Seago

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 successful
