✨ NOW OPEN! ✨ Our Spring 2021 exhibition BENDALL / BERNÈDE : A Story of Painting in Bordeaux is now available to view by appointment.

▪️Book a private view now by clicking the link in bio!

We look forward to welcoming you to this exhibition celebrating Mildred Bendall and Georges Bernède, an indomitable female artist and her most important student. Together, they would work tirelessly to forward the avant-garde in Bordeaux, an area of France notorious for its conservatism.

✨ GETTING READY FOR MONDAY! ✨ Putting the finishing touches to our upcoming BENDALL / BERNÈDE exhibition with @adrianmibus.

We are loving the contrast between Georges Bernède's highly dramatic, almost entirely monochromatic 'C048 - Composition 89' (1989) and orange tones in Mildred Bendall's exquisitely bright 'Vue de Collioure' (c. 1928) and fiery 'Tigerlilies' (c. 1928).

Viewings by appointment only.

See link in bio for more details and the online catalogue.

Coming soon: Bendall/Bernede exhibition.
Mildred Bendall was a pupil of Henri Matisse and in turn inspired the young Georges Bernede during the Second World War which she spent in the Zone Libre of France. An interesting story of a woman painter and her influence in Bordeaux.

Proud to announce the release of the film documentary on Fallen Astronaut by PAUL VAN HOEYDONCK by Frank Herrebout.
To view trailer or film see link in bio

This docu-film which our directors Adrian Mibus and An Jo Fermon co-produced depicts the compelling story of one of the most extraordinary achievements of the Space Age. For the first time in 50 years the artist consented to open up about this dramatic episode in his artistic career. What was to be a celebrated first human made artwork on the moon became a sour scandal.

Our gallery has supported the name of Van Hoeydonk since 1991.

Derek Boshier, Study for painting 'Ludo', 1961, pencil and crayon on paper 14 x 14 cm.

Part of our current online exhibition of Post-War British Abstraction.

1961 is one of those seminal years in recent art history. It was the year when the British Pop Artists became household names when their work was collectively shown in the Young Contemporaries show. 'Ludo', being Latin for 'I play' is a known strategy board game introduced in 1896. As part of popular culture Derek Boshier gave it the status of art by painting it, but rendering it in green and yellow instead of habitual four colours of green, yellow, red and blue.

When life was different! Brafa 2020 Klara Pompidou interviewing An Jo on the state of the London market.

Gisteren zond Pompidou live uit van op Brafa Art Fair, de kunst- en antiekbeurs die inmiddels aan haar 65ste editie toe is.

Nicky Aerts ging in gesprek met kunsthandelaars Christian Vroeyr, Samuel Vanhoegaerden, Klaas Muller en An Jo Fermon (Whitford Fine Art). Ze hadden het over BRAFA Art Fair, over enkele topstukken die te koop worden aangeboden en over de uitzonderlijke stiel van het handelen in kunst.

Brafa 2020 before Covid-19

When in Brussels, make sure to visit the international BRAFA Art Fair which celebrates its 65th edition this year. One of the 133 splendid galleries exhibiting is Whitford Fine Art from London who prominently features a wonderful mixed media work by Bram Bogart (1921-2012). 'Gebied' is from 1963 and an outright sculptural painting masterpiece of the Delft-born Belgian artist whose recognition is unprecedented.

Have a good look at it during BRAFA 2020 from 26 January - 2 February at Tour & Taxis Brussels.

Back at the gallery after Brafa, showing some Informal works by Bram Bogart. Open daily Monday-Friday 10 am - 5.30 pm.

It was deposited on the moon by Apollo15 in 1971, and has been smiling at Paul who was born in 1925 but is still in excellent health and still active! A twinkling star! Keep up the good work Paul!
