Messum's - Start a Collection

Messum's - Start a Collection An innovative way of introducing first-time buyers to the pleasures and rewards of collecting art.

“Start a collection was conceived by us in 2000 to provide a platform on which a first-time buyer could make a purchase with confidence. That defining moment proved to be a building block for many now established collections and numerous new friendships. For that reason more than any other, Start a Collection remains an eagerly awaited event in our exhibition calendar both for our clients and for ourselves.” Johnny Messum Works may be reserved ahead of time, but priority is given to buyers in the gallery for the first hour of the opening day.

For any one wanting advice on where to start a collection, you can do a lot worse than look at the Victorian works. Century old English landscape paintings for the price of "affordable" contemporary art. Extraordinary!

Another highlight of the exhibition and a great example of the artist's work. Guy Taplin is one of our most popular artists, his driftwood sculptures are collected globally and his wall mounted birds are probably the most sought-after objects.

For the three days of Start a Collection this piece will be reduced from £7,850 down to £3,850...get here early though as this will be a popular piece!

After visiting the treasure trove that is Jake Attree's studio in Yorkshire this week it seems the perfect moment to highlight the two works featured in this years Start a Collection. The heavy impasto and solid compositions in both 'The Ouse Looking Upstream' and 'The Ordnance Wall' evoke a timelessness befitting of the subject matter, the ancient city of York.

For three days only these works will be significantly reduced in price, a great opportunity to start collecting the work of this fascinating Northern artist.

Edward Le Bas CBE RA...
The Palace Pier, Brighton £16,850

With vivid dashes of colour and a distinct sense of activity, Le Bas has deftly encapsulated all the energy of a post-war Brighton.
One only hopes that the dog managed to cross the road safely amidst all the hustle and bustle!

This painting is being offered for £8,500 for three days only and is my choice to start a collection.
