Henry Moore, Family Group, 1944, Bronze

Perhaps a thought for the weekend…

“The observation of nature is decisive in the life of the artist. Thanks to it also the sculptor enriches his knowledge of form, finds nourishment for his inspiration and maintains the freshness of vision, avoiding crystallization in the repetition of formulas’ Henry Moore

In light of the current exhibition @barbicancentre , we wanted to share our wonderful Debuffet with you.

‘Site avec 4 personnages’ is part of Dubuffet’s expressive and distinctive series of collage paintings, 'Psycho Sites' from 1981. In each of these works Dubuffet portrayed heavily outlined figures within undetermined space, exploring both the physical and mental environment of the individual.

This picture belongs to his most successful works from the series, which are characterised by their free, painterly quality, naive forms and bright palette which constitute Dubuffet’s late art brut style.

Dubuffet initially studied painting at the Académie Julian in Paris. However, disillusioned by its conservatism, he left after only six months. Having rejected conventional practice, Dubuffet was instead drawn to art brut - his term for the art of the insane, children and "primitives".

Assimilating these forms into his own work, he developed a highly graphic style with which he dominated the post-war art scene in France, becoming one of the most important and revolutionary artists of his time.

We adore Dufy for the way he lifts the scenes off the page with his vibrant use of colour and great energy.

We wish we could visit the Dufy exhibition, “Le Paris de Dufy” at the Musée de Montmartre but for now, the pictures will have to suffice.

The exhibition is a retrospective aimed at showing and studying Paris as a subject for Dufy’s works. These 200 works of art were created between 1898 and 1953 and include paintings, furniture, and even documents, each one of them representing the Paris that inspired Dufy so much.

The show, in collaboration with @alonzakaimfineart will be the first time time Tucker’s works have been exhibited publicly and for sale and will give visitors the chance to see the pieces in the flesh in London.

Tucker spent his life capturing the essence of post-industrial England in the second half of the 20th century, creating images of the world and people he knew.

He invites us into his favourite bars and pubs, circus performances and to the streets of Warrington, immortalising his community through his work.

Preview Weekend:
Saturday 3 July, 13.00 - 17.00
Sunday 12.00 - 16.00

Additional opening times:
5 July - 6 August 2021

'Hunan-ynysu: Self Island' a new exhibition of works by acclaimed Welsh artist Shani Rhys James is now open.

Largely created over the past year during the pandemic, this new body of work reflects upon the challenges and revelations we have all been confronted with as both individuals and a society.

The show is open until 1 July.

Take a look at the Online Viewing Room here: https://connaughtbrown.viewingrooms.com/viewing-room/4-shani-rhys-james/

Connaught Brown is delighted to present Hunan-ynysu : Self Island, an exhibition by the acclaimed Welsh artist Shani Rhys James. In her arresting still lifes, portraits and interiors Rhys James examines her own image and relationships to explore the transience of being.

‘What is this life if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare.’ W.H.Davies

On this dark and wet Monday afternoon, Dufy is an artist we can turn to for a ray of light and colour.

The French artist painted the beauty he saw around him and found inspiration in the study of nature.

Dufy’s ‘Le Moulin de Terssac et la mare aux canards’, 1947-48 is currently on show at the gallery.

Our gallery director Nick Hemming-Brown takes a look at our wonderful Modigliani.

‘Femme Assise’ was first owned by Modigliani’s close friend and patron Dr. Paul Alexandre whom he met in 1908. Alexandre had a legendary collection of Modigliani’s drawings, not only for its size and breadth, but that it comprised of some of his earliest works from 1905-1914. Modigliani also created multiple portraits of his friend.

‘Femme Assise’ was later in the collections of renowned Italian director Ugo Tognazzi and the author of Marino Marini’s catalogue raisonné Guido Guastalla.

Happy Birthday to Miró whose career was in every sense limitless.

Through the development of a highly poetic language he conquered the boundaries of artistic convention, whilst also investing his work with a deep sense of humanity.

Today we look back on our 2011 exhibition (excuse our 2011 iPhone shots) of this great and experimental artist who saw art in every space he inhabited:

“If I should come to lack materials to work with then go to the beach and trace forms in the sand with a stick … draw in empty space the outline of the songs of birds, the sound of water and wind”

‘The Director’s Cut’
As we enter into the bank holiday weekend, we ask Director Anthony Brown to name an artist who summarises the month of April for him:

“Dufy’s work has a freshness and feeling of freedom. There’s an energy and sense of growth which comes from his depiction of nature, animals and people.

As we emerge from winter, particularly from the one we just had, Dufy’s wonderful colour palette combined with his distinctly fresh approach is a delightful breath of joy. Happy Easter to all.” CB
