Since we've got that #fridayfeeling , here's a really special first glimpse of our new acquisition 'Cannes, Le Port' by the French artist Charles Camoin.
Camoin was born in Marseille in 1879 and moved to Paris in 1898 to study art at the École des Beaux Arts under the renowned Symbolist painter Gustave Moreau. During this time he met Henri Matisse, Albert Marquet, Henri-Charles Manguin and Georges Rouault. In 1900 Camoin moved to Provence and struck up a long friendship with Paul Cézanne until the latter's death in 1906.
Around this time, Camoin exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants and at the Salon d’Automne with André Derain, Maurice de Vlaminck, Othon Friesz, Kees van Dongen and Louis Valtat. Together they worked in a room which became known as the “Cage des Fauves” and sparked the beginning of the Fauvist movement.
The art critic Bernard Dorival referred to Camoin as “the most Impressionist of the Fauves.” For more information about 'Cannes, Le Port' please contact us at email@example.com or visit our website (link in bio). #CharlesCamoin#Impressionist#Impressionism#Cannes#port#harbour#sea#sailinngboats#boats#France#modernpainting#modernart#PimlicoRoad#JohnAdamsFineArt
Repost from @johnadamsfineart using - A favourite from last night's #PimlicoRoad Summer Party was this elegant fashion illustration by the French artist Leon Benigni, who worked for fashion designers such as Jeanne Lanvin, Elsa Schiaperrelli and Cristobal Balenciaga, and worked closely with magazines such as @harpersbazaarus.
Thank you to everyone for coming and viewing our new collection! We hope you all enjoyed the evening as much as we did.
We have a real treat for you today: a first glimpse of 'Lemon Tree' by Antony Williams, painted in egg tempera.
Williams studied at Farnham College and Portsmouth University and has since won international recognition. Awards include the Ondaatje Award, the Carroll Foundation Award and the Prince of Wales Award for Portrait Drawing. His work has been featured in the BP Portrait Award Exhibition and is now held in collections such as the National Portrait Gallery. Williams has also undertaken prestigious commissions, including HRH The Queen.
The perfect last-minute Christmas gift for any contemporary art lover: Roberto Talignani's 'Leonardesco II'. .
Talignani is a contemporary Italian artist working in Parma. Inspired by equestrian sculptures from Classical Greek and Italian Renaissance art, Talignani seeks beauty in these traditional models and modernises them, adorning his horses with blocks of vibrant colour and decorative motifs which he has discovered in ancient monasteries, palaces and museums.
The Gallery will be open until 2pm tomorrow (Friday 23rd December) before closing for the holidays. We will re-open on Wednesday 4th January 2017! .
