The Sunshine State (Florida 2016)

Once all the celebrations for Christmas have passed and we’ve rung in the New Year, I am pretty ready for Winter to be over.  I’ve had my fill of cosying up to a roasting fire with a glass of red wine with the wind and rain lashing at the windows. I am ready for sunshine […]

Artist's heaven

Tabby, ‘Gators and Palms

Our week in Naples at the Art, Antique and Jewelry Show, turned up some interesting highlights. We visited Palm Cottage, the oldest house in Naples built in 1895 and which is now a museum. We were surprised to learn that sand, seashells and water make hurricane proof building materials – when compressed they form “tabby” […]

Our exhibition sits alongside 22 carefully selected dealers aboard the megayacht ‘Seafair’ for the inaugural CONCEPT art fair.

19, Albemarle Street – A look back at a famous location

In 1964, Bill Patterson opened the doors of the W.H.Patterson Gallery at 19, Albemarle Street – a place that was to become our home for nearly 50 years. The site had a long and chequered history of which we are proud to have now played a significant part. From 1664 until 1683, Clarendon House was […]


Monet the Gardener (Our trip to Giverny)

A painter of flowers and the natural world is inspired by the beauty they see around them.  For others, planning and growing the plants in a garden are as much part of the excitement of committing them to canvas with paint. Claude Monet was one such passionate plantsman.  He was well informed about plant life […]


Walking into Jacob’s landscape

“Every painting tells a story, Marie-Claire ready for the artist’s brush to capture her in the French landscape.” Magnificent, gnarled poplar trees adorned with balls of mistletoe and reaching for the skies, winding riverbanks dotted with cows, sloping hills carpeted with wild flowers bobbing in the wind, long views punctuated by churches and villages. All […]

Claude Monet: Then and Now (Summertime on the Normandy Coast)

With its distinctive cliff- faces, pretty villages and splendid beaches, the Normandy coastline has been immortalised by the paintings of Monet and other impressionists. Early in February 1882, Monet returned to the Channel. He found the area around Dieppe too urban and settled on Pourville. He painted there for seven weeks. Enjoying the coast, he […]


Luxembourg settles me

2013 was such a busy year at the Gallery, to say the least! I wasn’t considering leaving London at all until late November last year. In pursuit of my plan by January I was already decorating my new home, yes in Luxembourg! I didn’t know much about this tiny country. I still don’t. Indeed I […]
