A Dealer's Eye|30 MARCH - 29 MAY

"My apologies for the rather pompous title but after much discussion with my colleagues it was decided that ‘They’re my pictures, I just want to be alone with them’ and ‘Nothing to see here please move on to Philip Mould next door’ would probably send the wrong marketing message. Anyway, while feeling the reluctance to part with any of my precious charges, I am aware of the need, in these straightened times, to actually offer some for sale. After all, I’ve been reminded, that is the Panter & Hall raison d'être. Apparently. So here we are, forty-six original works from the vaults, all carefully chosen, acquired over a couple of decades and in some cases only recently cleaned and framed before the current crisis shut the off-line world down." - Matthew Hall © Panter & Hall View E Catalogue

Alan Davie CBE RA HRSA (1920-2014)

British painter, graphic artist, poet, musician, silversmith, and jeweller, born at Grangemouth, Stirlingshire, son of a painter and etcher. Davie studied at Edinburgh College of Art, 1937–40, and after serving in the Royal Artillery, 1941–6, had his first one-man show at Grant's Bookshop, Edinburgh, in 1946. He then briefly worked as a professional jazz musician (he plays several instruments) before spending almost a year (1948–9) travelling in Europe. This gave him the chance to see works by Jackson Pollock and other American painters in Peggy Guggenheim's gallery in Venice, and he was one of the first British painters to be affected by Abstract Expressionism. Other influences on his eclectic but extremely personal style are African sculpture and Zen Buddhism. His work is full of images suggestive of magic or mythology (some based on ancient forms, some of his own invention) and he uses these as themes around which—like a jazz musician—he spontaneously develops variations in exuberant colour and brushwork: ‘Although every work of mine must inevitably bear the stamp of my own personality, I feel that each one must, to be satisfactory, be a new revelation of something hitherto unknown to me, and I consider this evocation of the unknown to be the true function of any art.’ After his return to Britain in 1949, Davie settled in London, where he worked until 1953 as a jeweller. By the mid-1950s, however, he was gaining a considerable reputation as a painter (he has had regular one-man exhibitions at Gimpel Fils Gallery since 1950), and in the 1960s this became international. His many awards have included the prize for the best foreign painter at the São Paulo Bienal of 1963 and first prize at the International Graphics Exhibition, Cracow, in 1966. Retrospectives were held at the Barbican Art Gallery, London (1993), and Tate St Ives (2003). Since 1971 he has spent much of his time on the island of St Lucia and this has introduced Caribbean influences into his imagery. Sold Works Sold Work Post 2019 Sold Work Prior 2019

Alan Kingsbury

Silver Teapot with Postcard and Mandarin

£5,850

Alan Kingsbury RWA (born 1960)

Born in London he was producing works in oils from the age of nine. He studied psychology and art history at university. In 1983 he accepted an internship at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice. Subsequently, as a cataloguer of modern paintings for Bonhams Auctioneers, he viewed many thousands of paintings and gained a real understanding of detail and effect. In 1986 he moved to Venice and painted outdoor oil sketches in varying light conditions. From 1986 he turned to painting full time, working initially in Italy, then Scotland and since 1991, West Cornwall.  He has held numerous solo exhibitions over the last thirty years and has exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts, The New English Art Club and the Royal Society of Portrait Painters. He is an elected Academician of the Royal West of England Academy. For over twenty years his work was characterised by imaginative figure paintings but currently he engages directly with subject matter that he loves and concentrates on large scale still life, interior and landscape compositions in a fluid and painterly style.  Alan is an artist who manages that rare balance in painting, his works appear simultaneously classical yet utterly contemporary in effect. In recent years he has worked towards perfecting large scale still-lifes, each characterised by daringly fluid paintwork and a refreshing economy of style. The subject matter is carefully chosen and each painting is prepared over time with meticulous attention to the balance and harmony of composition. Only when the artist is completely satisfied with all elements of an idea will he approach the canvas, often completing a painting in a bout of uninterrupted activity lasting a single day.  Thus a maximum level of energy is maintained in the finished work, stretching the limits of brushwork with a directness and clarity that excites the eye. ‘In Alan’s paintings the seductive use of dash and bravura remains on a grand scale; his familiar deftness of brush and confident paint-laden strokes seem to have found their optimum canvas size. His work has evolved from subtle, contemplative, domestic set pieces to creations of light, colour and drama that are palatial in conception. I am pleased to say that his paintings have lost none of the other-worldly charm and quiet wit that is so much an extension of Alan’s own personality. Now that twinkle in the palette’s eye is expressed through style and composition not the narrative content as in the past. When standing in front of an original Kingsbury there is no room for disappointment. He is a perfectionist in paint who has mastered the art of making that perfection appear child’s play. Life crackles through his brush and injects such energy into each work that standing in a room of these sumptuous examples of the modern Baroque is a positively life affirming experience. For me, Alan is undoubtedly one of the great figurative painters of his generation. In an age where the London commercial art scene is annually suffocated by the numbing homogeneity of the latest Florentine graduates, Alan’s paintings and talent scream integrity and substance.”  Matthew Hall   Exhibitions E Catalogues Sold Works Alan Kingsbury: Twelve Paintings - 2016 Alan Kingsbury: The Charms of Life - 2015 Alan Kingsbury RWA Alan Kingsbury: The Ionian Sea - 2011 Alan Kingsbury - 2010 Alan Kingsbury - 2009 Alan Kingsbury: Twelve Paintings - 2016 Alan Kingsbury: The Charms of Life - 2015 Sold Work Post 2019 Sold Work Prior 2019

Alastair Michie RWA FRBS (1921-2008)

The eldest son of Anne Redpath, possibly the most famous Scottish woman painter of the twentieth century, Michie was born in St Omer, France where his father was working as an architect. When the 1930s recession led the family to return to Hawick in Scotland, Michie attended the local high school where he won a scholarship to study architecture at Edinburgh College of Art. War service in the RAF interrupted his studies and he became one of the youngest pilots to receive his wings, serving with distinction as a night-fighter pilot in reconnaissance aircraft over Germany and occupied territory. Reluctant to return to his architectural studies after the war, Michie worked as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer. He had a successful career as a fashion draughtsman for leading magazines in London, before moving to Dorset in 1950. A visit to the 1962 Venice Biennale had a dramatic artistic and professional impact. It was there that Michie first encountered the work of the American abstract expressionists:  Robert Motherwell, Franz Kline and Mark Rothko. The experience drove him towards painting and particularly abstraction. His new artistic philosophy was confirmed at a meeting with Rothko at an exhibition of paintings by his friend John Plumb at the Axiom gallery in London in the late 1960s. His first solo exhibition of his new work was held at Edinburgh's Traverse Theatre in 1964. These large acrylics, richly coloured and sensuously textured, linked him not only to the American painters he admired, but also to the Edinburgh school of colourists. That same year he also exhibited Gold Relief 21 at the Royal Scottish Academy, and was a finalist in an Arts Council open painting competition.  He exhibited widely in Britain and abroad and in 1972 a major show in São Paulo led to the modern art museums of Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo purchasing work. His sculpture was shown at the Barbican Centre in London in 1981. Peter Davies concluded his excellent obituary of Michie in the Independent as an artist who ‘belonged to a generation of later modernist artists who shared an optimistic but never naïve world-view conditioned by an understanding of human nature gained during wartime. A sophisticated, urbane man with a quiet, wry sense of humour, he overcame a strange mix of privilege and disadvantage to pursue a difficult career.’ This small collection of Fashion illustrations were purchased directly from the artist’s family. They cover an exciting period of British fashion from the ascent from post war austerity to the swinging sixties: a fascinating potted timeline plotting the evolution of women’s design from the ‘New Look’ to ‘Hippy Chic’.

Alberto Morrocco OBE RSA RP RSW RGI (1917-1998)

Alberto Morrocco was born in Aberdeen, the son of Italian immigrants. Precocious talent as a draughtsman secured him entrance to Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen at the tender age of 14 from where, following graduation, he briefly toured pre-war France and Italy. The avant-garde of the twenties and thirties, in particular Braque and Picasso, consequently had a lasting influence on Morocco’s life and art. Following war service as a conscientious objector in the medical corps, Morrocco spent the rest of his professional life in Dundee, as Head of the School of painting at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art. Under his skilled direction, the School adopted a characteristic approach to teaching, with the emphasis on observation and drawing. As a teacher, Morrocco was erudite, witty, passionate and hugely respected by his students. Following his retirement from teaching in 1982, Morrocco painted vigorously, producing what is often thought to be his most exciting work. The University of Dundee awarded Morrocco an honorary doctorate in 1980. He painted all its Principals and, in 1977, the Queen Mother as Chancellor. Spanning thirty years, these portraits are a perfect illustration of how skilfully he adapted the conventions of the formal portrait to the expectations of a contemporary audience. Morrocco was awarded the San Vita Romano Prize and both the Guthrie and Carnegie Award of the Royal Scottish Academy, where he was elected Fellow in 1962. In addition to the degree from Dundee University, Morocco was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from Stirling University in 1987. He served on the Scottish Arts Council and the Royal Fine Art Commission for Scotland and was appointed OBE in 1993. Morrocco is remembered as a much loved figure in the Scottish art world, both his personality and painting having dominated the scene for nearly half a century.

Alex Uxbridge (born 1950)

Alex Uxbridge had already enjoyed a successful career in art publishing before he entered the Byam Shaw School of Art in his late thirties. Since graduating in the early 1990s he has painted and exhibited professionally without break and we are delighted to introduce his new work to our collectors at Panter & Hall. Having grown up in Anglesey at his ancestral home, Plas Newydd, his Welsh roots run deep. His paintings of the area have a Welshness about them though, very far removed from the palette knife of Kyffin Williams that has so come to define and dominate the national style. He still works from a remote cottage on the island and the few Snowdonia paintings in this collection beautifully capture the majesty and isolation of the mountain passes. As with many British painters before him, Alex regularly takes that well-trodden path to the Mediterranean countries and the extraordinary light they offer. By contrast, his paintings there are lit up with the evident pleasure he derives from the area. His brushstrokes lighten along with his palette, and his style adopts a post-impressionism reminiscent of the later Bloomsbury works. His paintings are gentle, light of touch, beautifully composed, and infused with a poetic lyricism that belies the confidence of their construction.  So many painters have sought out the Mediterranean light over the last century or so, the draw of the sun-drenched olive groves and terracotta roofs has seduced thousands from the impressionists onwards. Alex’s paintings are certainly deeply embedded in this line and I think he stands as worthy an heir to that tradition as any one painting there today. Alex is an artist who clearly relishes the challenge of committing a subject to canvas and has the talent and experience to pull it off.

The empty kitchens and bedroom views, seen through a tall shutter or a garden door, have a contemplative quality. Human absence adds to the sense of each room’s abandonment, a peaceful refuge from the midday sun awaiting a new arrival. These delightful, restful paintings have an intimist quality that evokes the later works of Bonnard.In all a very enjoyable collection of paintings from an artist who clearly relishes the challenge of committing a subject to canvas and has the talent and experience to pull it off.© Panter & Hall View the E Catalogue from this LINK MAIN GALLERYPanter & Hall11-12 Pall MallLondonSW1Y 5LUMonday to Friday: 10.00 AM - 6.00PMSaturdays: BY APPOINTMENT ONLY Sundays: ClosedClosed Bank Holidays+44 (0)20 7399 9999enquiries@panterandhall.com

Alexander Milligan Galt RGI (1913-2000)

He was born in Greenock in 1913, the seventh child of a Clydeside brass founder. Living off the frugal earnings of his father’s labour he enrolled at the Glasgow School of Art in 1930.  Several other students would tease him over his poverty and often he was forced to make his own paints and use his hair to make brushes.  While at Glasgow he befriended David Donaldson and Bill Crosbie, both contemporaries at the school.  Donaldson who later became Queen’s Limner in Scotland and Head of the School of Art wrote that he was overawed by Galt’s draughtsmanship “…he could draw like an angel….and …could out Orpen Orpen”.  Many of the Glasgow art teachers referred to Galt as “the human camera”.  On graduation he won the Torrance Award for life painting and his diploma work toured the art schools of Scotland as an example to other students. In the 1930s he befriended the sculptor Jacob Epstein and his reputation began to grow apace. His painting ‘The Stable Boy’ was purchased by the Caird Museum bequest in Greenock and it was this work that drew the attention of the critic James Agate. Agate’s patronage proved invaluable to the young painter and led to introductions to Rex Nankivell at the Redfern Gallery and the patron Sir Ulrich Alexander, Keeper of the Privy Purse. The award of the Carnegie Scholarship in 1938 enabled Galt to travel to Paris.  He took rooms for two years in Montparnasse meeting the resident artistic community through his friend the padre Donald Caskie.  Caskie later distinguished himself as the war hero ‘the Tartan Pimpernel’.   Forced to return to Scotland with the onset of war he began to teach at Greenock high school before being called up for service in the RAF.  Returning to civilian life in 1945 Galt took a job as part time tutor at Glasgow School of Art before being appointed as art master to Greenock high school.  In the austerity of post war Glasgow Galt struggled to keep his family; it is an indication of the high esteem his fellow artists held him that when he felt obliged for economic reasons to resign from the Glasgow Arts Club the committee refused to allow him to leave, forgoing his membership fee. Despite his popularity amongst his peers Galt was single minded in his pursuit of art. Although an elected member of the Royal Glasgow Institute he eschewed the accompanying social life, preferring to lose himself in his painting, the sound of opera reverberating around his studio. He was active until his death in 2000, winning his last prize at the RGI at the age of 81.

Alfred Kingsley Lawrence RA RP (1893-1978)

Although born in Lewes in Sussex, Lawrence trained at King Edward VII School of Art, at the time part of Armstrong College a precursor to Newcastle University. He went on to study at the Royal College of Art under William Rothenstein. His studies were interrupted by the Great War and he joined up with the Tyneside Pioneers attached to the Northumberland Fusiliers as a subaltern. Even as a Pioneer he saw his share of the trauma of that war. He witnessed the action at Bray and the Somme and after the war illustrated the official account of his Battalion’s service. On returning to the Royal College he was awarded a travelling scholarship in 1922 and the Prix de Rome in 1923. His subsequent travel and study in Italy greatly inspired and informed his artistic practice. He enjoyed a reputation as one of the country’s leading figure painters and portrait painters. In 1927 he was one of eight artists commissioned to paint the ‘Building of Britain’ mural scheme in St Stephen’s Hall in the Palace of Westminster. He also painted murals for the Laing Art Gallery and the Bank of England. He is represented in the permanent collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Royal Society, the Imperial War Museum, the Bank of England, the National Portrait Gallery, the National Trust, the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and the Royal Airforce Museum. A portrait of Lord Plunkett is in the Auckland Art Gallery and a portrait of Sir William Rothenstein is in Royal College of Art Collection. Sold Works Sold Work

Alison Stockmarr

After originally training as a clothes designer, Alison Stockmarr decided to retrain at Colchester School of Art studying Textiles and 3D Design in order to persue her passion for art. Alison is a contemporary British Artist producing collaged 3-D artworks from old books and record sleeves, found ephemera and original photographs. Currently she creates collaged artworks that she defines in  distinct categories; Face Books, Picture Booksand Alphabetical Encyclopaedias, all carried off with her signature playfulness and semantic irony. Face Books are a collection of work poking fun at social media. By matching old photographs with suitably titled books, profiles are constructed, creating a library of invented friends of yesteryear. Apertures are cut into books with photographs and ephemera collaged within their pages. Narratives are composed to complete the picture! These assemblages of everyday archaeologies afford the viewer glimpses of stories or notions and her pithy profiles offer an alternative perspective of Facebook and the like. Her Picture Books are carefully considered illustrated bookart. Taking the original book title as her starting point she collages in detailed layers with found ephemera, creating 3-D dioramas. Alphabetical Encyclopaedias are a recent addition, where encyclopaedias fall open on a specific page and subject matter. Illustrated with collaged ephemera, imagery chases from one aperture, over the page and into the other. Each letter of the alphabet is to be illustrated. So far she has ‘A for Alphabet’, ‘B for Birds’ and ‘C for Children, seen and not heard!’. With her extensive library of Book Art and Collages, she now produces giclee prints and exhibits work nationally and internationally.

Alistair Little (born 1974)

After three years in the film and television industries Alistair turned to two dimensional art to train and work as a freelance commercial illustrator. Early commissions included an underground comic and graphic design work along with storyboard work for the advertising industry. Here he learnt the true value of a strong knowledge of draughtsmanship, and his ability to render credible accurate figure work is the backbone of his work today. In 2001, after four years almost exclusively working in markers and pencils he started experimenting with paint and hasn’t looked back.Alistair’s artistic influences are immediately evident. His great love of twentieth century cinema, particularly the Film Noir genre, dominates his style and his subject matter. His early experience in the film industry taught him the technique of capturing a wider story in the confines of one still image. Each of Alistair’s paintings burst with cinematic tension, his models are carefully posed and dressed to play a well-choreographed role within a cleverly lit backdrop. His use of chiaroscuro serves to heighten the drama, throwing his protagonists into half shadow or obscuring a face with a carefully tilted trilby. Through these images Alistair constructs an edgy narrative, showing the viewer glimpses of a seamy underworld peopled by morally ambiguous characters worthy of Raymond Chandler.

André Marchand (1907-1997)

Born in Aix-en-Provence he spent his youth roaming the surrounding countryside until his father's antipathy to his professed artistic ambitions drove him away. Settling in Paris he spent many hours touring the Louvre and making full use of the many free art academies in Montparnasse. In the 1930s he participated with Francis Gruber and Pierre Tal Coat in the group known as the 'Forces Nouvelles' and began exhibiting his paintings of Biskra in Southern Algeria at the Galerie Billet-Worms in 1934. In 1936 his friend Darius Milhaud introduced him to the gallery owner Pierre Colle who began exhibiting his works and the following year he won the prix Paul Guillaume.  He continued to work and exhibit throughout the war, participating in 'Twenty Young French Painters' at the Galerie Braun in May 1941. Marchand and many of his fellow exhibitors at this exhibition went on to form the Salon de Mai. This group, under the direction and presidency of the critic Gaston Diehl was founded in a café on the Rue Dauphine in Paris in 1943 in opposition to Nazi ideology and its condemnation of degenerate art. The same year Marchand married the decorator Yvonne Sjoestadt and began giving drawing lessons to the painter Françoise Gillot. In 1944 the collector Aimé Maeght invited him to work in Cannes and Saint-Paul-de-Vence and introduced him to Matisse and Bonnard. Maeght opened his own gallery in 1945 on the rue de Téhéran in Paris and a year later dedicated a large and critically acclaimed exhibition to Marchand. Picasso took umbrage to the success of Marchand's exhibition and, mortified, Marchand wrote “the falling out between us is complete”. By the end of the 1940s he was enjoying an international reputation and was invited to exhibit at the art bienniale of Sao Paolo in 1951 and Venice in 1954. A large retrospective of his work was held at the Galerie Charpentier in Paris in 1956. A thirty year retrospective was held at Réattu Museum in 1963. He died at Arles in 1997. © Panter & Hall 2015 Sold Works Sold Work

Andrew Scott George (born 1952)

A high realist style is characteristic of the work of artists who use egg tempera. The medium only allows the application of small amounts of pigment at any one time, building in layers of fine brush strokes over the traditional gesso ground.  As with the paintings of the renaissance artists who used this medium, egg tempera produces a rare luminosity. Andrew George is one such artist adept in using this medium. He paints the landscapes around his home in the Mendip hills of North Somerset, Dorset’s Coastline and the hills of Scotland. On first impression his paintings are finely detailed – they are incredibly well observed, often with each blade of grass given perfect realisation; and yet on closer inspection one notices passages of paint which are almost abstract, where the detail is more impressionistically suggested. Multiple perspectives lead the eye to a combination of vanishing points that provide a wonderful sense of space and distance. Andrew seeks the sublime in a landscape; many are rugged and windswept. The uncomfortable feeling of standing too close to a cliff edge, or the barren quality of a hillside moor, give the paintings an exciting visual edge. (Geoffrey Bertram, 2010)   Attended Edinburgh College of Art 1970 – 74 2000                 South West Arts, Exeter; Prizewinner 2000 and 09     Royal West of England Academy; Prizewinner   Collections Fleming- Wyfold Art Foundation, London Dorsey & Whitney, London The Leicestershire Collection, The Sherrier Centre, Lutterworth Sold Works Sold Work Post 2019 Sold Work Prior 2019

Andrew Squire (born 1954)

Andrew Squire was born in 1954. He originally trained as an architect graduating from Manchester University but for the last thirty years has been a professional artist and designer, based in Glasgow.  Andrew has travelled and exhibited widely, with residencies in Iceland, Canada, Nepal, and Tanzania. His paintings are deceptively simple drawing variously on the elemental space and light of the west of Scotland, the inner landscape of the subconscious, and iconic images of birds and beasts. Speaking about his art work Andrew Squires says "Following my growing commitment to ecology and sustainability, my artwork is continuing to make a steady move away from an anthropocentric perspective, towards geocentrism. Put plainly, and despite the subtext of the last 2,500 years of Western culture, humans and their doings are not the centre of the universe. The theme of much of my art work has been a contemplation of the boundaries of the tangible world and that which lies beyond, using a visual language of isolated iconic and archetypal images, often of animals and birds, carefully placed in their pictorial space."

In 1998 she settled in London, rented a studio in Parade Mews, Tulse Hill, exhibiting her work with various galleries around the country and had a Solo Show in Bergen, Norway at Gallery Urd. In 2006 Ann relocated to West Penwith in Cornwall.  She was invited by selector Fred Cuming RA to exhibit six paintings in the 2008 Discerning Eye Exhibition and won the Regional Prize for the West Country, the same year a painting was accepted into the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.  In 2009 her work was selected for the Royal West of England Academy Exhibition and was included in a guided commentary about the exhibition. Working predominantly in oil on canvas or board, Ann's painting is a direct response to her environment whether inspired by daily walks in the ever-changing elements of the Cornish landscape or by the quiet contemplation of flowers and everyday objects around her.
