ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Our biannual Gladwell’s catalogue is a wonderful opportunity to showcase our latest treasures. This winter edition brings together historic Gladwell biographies of familiar artists, and yet, we make room for the new and talented too. Superb works of art have restorative qualities, we can look at them as an antidote to current political uncertainty.
We are living in an age where people have so much information to hand, more often than not at their fingertips. However, the fine art we present in our gallery is far more than facts, figures, and information, it is about beauty. The standards of beauty that we strive to protect have a firm base in human nature and we need to build them into our lives. If our need for beauty goes unsatisfied, so do we. Almost on a daily basis in the gallery we ask ourselves ‘what is beauty?’ On each occasion we do this looking at a painting and taking from it a personal viewpoint. We take great responsibility for taking care of the selection of works we choose for our gallery walls. In doing this we are encouraging our views on art to be those which prevail. Art is more than just an idea, it needs skill and creativity to be formed. Creativity is about sharing, it is a call to the world to see it. The way that we and our artists see it. We like to feel that we are in some way ‘custodians of beauty’, and we hope that this gives you a little glimpse of insight into the delight we get out of what we do for you, our clients. Three generations of my family have trained their eye, travelled, and made sense of what makes a good picture. From my grandfather and my father, to Glenn and I and now with our lovely team today, we are delighted to offer our interpretation of beauty to you all.
We look forward to welcoming you to Beauchamp Place a space where you can take delight in the undiscovered genius of Raymond Wintz, or the splendour of the French Master Lhermitte, or joy in the whimsical and evocative Helen Bradley, to name but a few.
We wish all of you all the beauty of this season.
With my best wishes,
