Philip Mould & Co. are delighted to announce that from 26 September - 10 October 2017 we will be holding a major exhibition focusing on the work of British society portrait painter Sir Oswald Birley (1880-1952), curated by renowned art historian Dr Jonathan Black, assisted by Josephine Fitzalan Howard.
Power & Beauty: The Art of Si Oswald Birley, will assemble many of Birley’s most iconic portraits in the first major exhibition of the artist's work since the 1954 retrospective that followed the his death in 1952. As such the exhibition, to be held at our Pall Mall gallery, will provide a rare opportunity to restore one of the most sought-after artists of his day to his rightful position within the canon of twentieth-century British figurative art.

Sir Oswald Birley (1880 -1952) was one of Britain’s most successful portrait painters. From 1919 until the early 1950s he was the go-to artist of the time, commissioned by the Royal family, the aristocracy, politicians, artists, scientists –leading figures of their day. His work hangs in many of the UK’s major palaces, country houses, institutions and private homes; his paintings rarely leave the walls which they were designed to adorn.
