Having a land conservationist as my other half means that we are very close to nature. Living in beautiful rural Suffolk also helps but it is having a walled cottage garden at our gallery that probably gives us both the most pleasure.  Even as I write, Jane is at the garden centre and she will surely come back with some new plants. She has been outside nearly all morning and is most at home doing some gardening, listening to the birds in the trees and soaking up the lovely sunshine. For my part, I have been giving the gallery a good spring clean and also changing the cut flowers which we always display in the gallery. Today, we have roses and tulips mainly as well as some oriental lilies. Four vases to be exact. Flowers is something we are passionate about and that is probably why we decided to always ensure we have in stock a good choice of artwork by some of Britain’s greatest flower painters. Currently, we have five Cecil Kennedy’s, one Harold Clayton, one Katherine Church and one by Edward Seago. To compliment the British work we also have three French paintings, two by Marcel Dyf and one by Eugene Murer who was a friend of Camille Pissaro and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. So a real choice for that lover of flower paintings. Well worth a drive out for the day so why not come and take a look in rural Suffolk at our gallery in Long Melford.

When Jane and I first opened our gallery we didn’t know who Clive Madgwick was - this is a very sad admission I have to say! But when we were asked several times about his work and whether we could get some we decided to investigate who he was and how to find his work. He was a local man from the dentistry profession but his love of painting eventually took over and he quit being a dentist and became a full time professional painter in 1972. He painted a variety of subjects including rural and farming landscapes, village houses, churches, city scapes such as London, Rome and Venice and even still life and nudes. We have now sold 30 works in the past twelve months and demand for his work has been phenomenal with his most popular subjects of local Suffolk landmarks having a shortlist of buyers waiting patiently to capture the personal ownership of that elusive Clive Madgwick scene. We are therefore not only keen sellers of his work but keen buyers too!

Spring Morning at Chelsworth, Suffolk by Clive Madgwick, Oil on canvas, 19 ½ x 29 ½ inches. Please see Modern British section of our website.

I am always excited to see new works arrive at the gallery but I have been particularly taken with a pair of paintings that arrived a few days ago. Edgar Hunt is a well-known British artist noted for his very detailed depictions of farm yard animals especially those of Chickens, Rabbits and Donkeys; but he is not quite so well known for his paintings of Mallards. Whilst not actually rare, they are certainly much harder to come by and we are delighted to have a great pair dating from 1950. In perfect condition, one shows eight birds taking off from a river bank and the other shows their return. It appears that Edgar was capturing the birds leaving in early morning and then returning as the day started to fade and he has captured the day magnificently. Housed in beautiful original frames they are ready to hang and can be found under the Modern British section of our website.

As new gallery owners for the past eighteen months, Jane and myself haven’t had too much time off! In fact, very little to be honest. Not only did we renovate a lovely old building before we got started but we have also busied ourselves creating a range of stock to suit a wide variety of art tastes. Not really contemporary I might say, but more traditional works from the 20th Century and some from each the 19th and 21st Century as well. As I say, we hadn’t had much time to ourselves so when a special invitation arrived we got rather excited. The VIP invitation was from Jenny, the Director of The Munnings Museum at Dedham. It was for their forthcoming new season opening on the evening of Friday 31st March and on view was a special exhibition of Sir Alfred’s river paintings. Not only were we invited but Jenny asked if she could borrow a painting from our stock to put on show, an early work by Munnings from 1909 of the River Dove in a Suffolk landscape. We have had this beautiful painting just a few months and thought how wonderful for it to be re-united at Dedham for a few days. So along we went, with painting in hand. The evening turned out wonderful too, lots of people, some fine canapes, some lovely wine and one or two colleagues we knew from the art world to catch up with. Not only was it the beginning of a special exhibition but it was a special evening for all who attended. The works of Sir Alfred Munnings are now firmly entrenched in the hearts of the many visitors who care to visit the museum each year. It is a special place, a historical museum where you are sure to have a warm welcome. Thank you Jenny and all your colleagues for a great evening. We wish you great success for the season! The River Dove Suffolk landscape by Sir Alfred Munnings currently at the Munnings Museum, oil on canvas, 20 x 24 inches.
