signed, dated and numbered 'D139' (lower right)

with The Redfern Gallery, London, December 1944.

see Alan Peat and Brian Whitton, John Tunnard: His Life and Work, Scolar Press, 1997, p.168 for reference to this work.

During World War Two, John Tunnard worked as a coastguard on The Lizard peninsular and this deeply influenced a number of his works of this period such as Mirage painted in 1944.

Tunnard plays with space, introducing semi-transparent forms, intersecting planes and biomorphic elements in Mirage, akin to some elements of Naum Gabo's constructive work. Notably some of these forms give the impression of wartime wings and rudders on the beach.

see Alan Peat and Brian Whitton, John Tunnard: His Life and Work, Scolar, Press, 1997, p.191 for reference to this work.

By the late 1950s Tunnard had developed an interest in space exploration and supersonic flight, at the height of the international space race, which had begun in 1957 between the USA and The Soviet Union. Solitaire for Space Travellers shows his development and interest in playing with vast distances, night and day, and static and slow moving objects.

Duncan Grant (British, 1885-1978)
Still life with the white jug
signed (lower right) and with initials (to reverse)
oils on board
59.5cm x 38.5cm.

Collection of Paul Roche.

The white jug shown in this painting is probably the same one that appeared in many of Vanessa Bell's and Duncan Grant's paintings, the earliest example being its addition in about 1918 to an abstract painted in 1914, now known as 'The White Jug'. A photograph of the jug at Charleston appears as plate 63 in Omega & After by Isabelle Anscombe.

Paul Roche was a British poet, novelist, Professor of English and noted translator of Greek and Latin classics. He was a habitué of the Bloomsbury Group and was particularly close to Duncan Grant, who he met in 1946 and whom came to live with him and his family until Grant's death in 1978.

Harris won the BP Portrait Award in 1993 and the noted art critic Brian Sewell championed his work for many years writing 'Harris fits quite happily into the many strange English traditions of romanticism, tinged with mystery, or even mysticism, yet is unmistakably original and no man's slavish imitator'. (Art Review, 1993, p.19). His work has been classified as skinhead pre-raphaelitism.

62cm x 75cm.

By descent through the artist's family.

City Art Gallery, Stoke on Trent, Raymond Coxon Retrospective, April - June 1987, no.30.

Raymond Coxon was a painter for over 75 years, producing diverse art work which became collectable in artistic circles. His work was bought by figures such as Maynard Keynes, Sir Michael Sadler, Sir Edward Marsh and Henry Lamb, and his artwork now hangs in many museum collections.

Coxon studied at Leeds College of Art (1919-21), where he became a close friend of the sculptor Henry Moore. Alongside Moore, Coxon visited France in 1922 and met Malliol and Bonnard. He went on to study at the Royal College of Art (1921-25), under Sir William Rothenstein and taught at Richmond School of Art (1925).

In 1927 Coxon and his wife, together with Henry Moore and Leon Underwood formed the short-lived Independent Society.

His first one man exhibition took place in 1928 with the London Artists Association at the Cooling Galleries. He went onto have one-man shows at the Leicester Galleries (1936, 1940, 1947 and 1960), was a member of the London Group (1932), the Chiswick Group (1938), and became an official war artist seconded to the navy in the Second World War (1940-45).

Perhaps some of his most notable work, alongside his landscapes, were his portraits of his friends including Henry Moore, Ceri Richards, Vivian Pitchforth and John Piper.
