Hunting For Treasure

I often feel that when we acquire new works of art for the gallery, the thrilling sensation must be similar to that of our clients buying works for their collections. We spend hours, sometimes days, following leads, scouring private collections all over the world and, inevitably, hunting through auction houses both sides of the Atlantic. […]

Anthony’s Icelandic Adventure

It’s not often you find me far from the gallery, however, when an old mate of some sixty years standing invites you on a summer adventure I couldn’t say no. Him hailing from Colorado and me from London we met up in Iceland. Our plan had been to spend time on the island of fire […]

Hamptons 2017: Reflections

The Hamptons is always one of the most highly anticipated trips of the year: beautifully deserted sand dunes and high manicured hedges hide jaw-dropping multi-million dollar properties right by the Atlantic Ocean; lobster rolls flow from every shop and restaurant; and, from 4th July until Labor Day weekend, Long Island comes alive as THE holiday […]

Island of Jersey 2017: Reflections

Jersey shimmered this week under a hot sun. It’s glittering pink stone houses, sandy shores, washed by blue Atlantic waters, and fields full of abundant produce  set a beautiful scene for the arrival of Gladwell & Patterson on the Island. We all felt warmed by this convivial atmosphere and by the fantastic reception we received […]

Stewart Lees at Chelsea

Ever get coriander confused with cumin? Or wonder just what exactly curry powder is made out of? We often think that the fresh and fragrant herbs in Stewart Lees paintings might help you with these and many other culinary questions. The bright zesty greens of fresh basil or the tightly coloured variegated leaves of a […]

Martin Taylor at Chelsea

Low flying pheasants, deep green leaves on heavy ash tree boughs and golden honey colour stone houses and villages can only mean you are travelling through Northamptonshire. I was on my way to visit Martin Taylor in his studio just on the edge of the Althorp estate, just before the start of the Chelsea Flower […]

Paul S. Brown at Chelsea

The savoury subjects of Paul S. Brown’s paintings on Tuesday at the Flower Show were a delightful contrast both in subject and form. Vegetables, cookery, herbs and spices are all a theme of inspiration at Chelsea and this year BBC Radio 2 used them to great effect on their taste garden supported by DJ Chris […]

Peter van Breda at Chelsea

The River Thames is rushing past the Chelsea Flower show just outside the Bullring Gate. Flowing under Albert and Chelsea bridges it moves along timeless and deep. Summer sun bounces across the surface, sparkling and shimmering and perhaps just for this week the river’s surface captures briefly the colour and beauty of what is happening […]

Kenneth Webb: Interview with Devon Life

Capturing the natural world in paint is one of the artworld’s most longstanding challenges dating back as much as 500 years. But it was the interpretations from the 18th century that we think of – from the 18th century romantic rural idylls painted by John Constable through to the 19th century impressionistic Monet’s Giverny gardens […]
