An exciting new acquisition, is a selection of works by the artist David Arbus. David, who has featured in the past as a ‘friend of the month’, has been known to me for over fifteen years and in that time he has lived in Kent, Somerset, the East & West coasts of the United States and Provence. In this space of time he has had numerous exhibitions and is currently working on a project which involves doing the illustrations for a series of ‘Editions Ouest France’ books.
For my store, I have chosen a variety of works in different styles, which reflect David’s versatility and skill. There are many more works within these categories, so do ask me for further details.
The other thing I should point out, is that I make no real profit on these works and he lowers his usual prices for me, so you actually get them cheaper (YES, you heard correctly!). David is a friend, and as such, I am delighted to help and encourage and also feel privileged to be able to display his work.
Contact me for further details, and note that these fine art works are one off’s and are large scale even without mounting and framing.
New in today is an ‘Oran’ vase by Rene Lalique. This large, weighty, wheel-cut, opalescent vase depicts large dahlias and foliage. It is signed to the base ‘R. Lalique, France, No 999’.
