Philip Mould & Company are pleased to present Downman in Vogue an exhibition showcasing five works by 19th Century British artist John Downman (1750-1824). On display from 18th September - 9th October, both in the gallery and online, this exhibition offers an insight into Downman's ability to capture the fleeting extravagant fashions of his day which were often excluded from contemporary oil paintings.
Fake or Fortune? is now in pre-production. Fake or Fortune? will return next year for a ninth series as Philip Mould and Fiona Bruce investigate more thrilling cases of art world mystery, intrigue and deception.
Art detectives on the BBC's Fake or Fortune? television series tried in vain in 2015 to prove that a painting of a sun-drenched village scene on the French Riviera was by Sir Winston Churchill.
But experts on the wartime leader rejected the attribution, partly because there was not enough documentary evidence.
Now British artist Paul Rafferty has uncovered a "smoking gun", a thumbnail photograph of that very painting - the fountain of St-Paul-de-Vence - at Chartwell, Churchill's family home in Kent.
BBC One's 'The Repair Shop' offers insight into the restoration of a Sarah Biffen miniature.
Art conservator Lucia Scalisi is faced with an extraordinary item, a tiny portrait painted by the celebrated Victorian artist Sarah Biffen, who had no arms and wielded her paintbrush with her mouth. Lucia calls on the services of paper restoration expert Louise Drover to help with the delicate repair.
The Dulwich Picture Gallery's exhibition 'British Surrealism', transferred online in a virtual format due to Covid-19 public health measures (a surreal experience in itself), has provided an opportunity to celebrate the British Surrealists, and the influence of British Surrealism on artists and artworks here at Philip Mould & Company.
A portarit of William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) by the daring Italian painter Antonio Mancini (1852-1930) (currently with Philip Mould & Company) has been on display at The Mesdag Collection, The Hague as part of the spring/summer exhibition Exhibition Mancini: Eccentric & Extravagant.
The inclusion of Mancini's 1907 portrait of Yeats in such an extensive retrospective, the first of its kind held in the Netherlands, has placed this work within the broader context of the artist's professional output which spanned over 60 years from 1872-1930.
Among the works on offer from LAW exhibitors are sculptures by Félicie de Faveau (1799-1886) from Stuart Lochhead and Didier Aaron, portraits by Maria Verelst (1680-1744) from Philip Mould & Company and paintings by early Abstract Expressionist Belle Cramer (1883-1978).
The paintings of John Nash exert a subtle fascination. Start looking, and you will notice more. Rhythms pulse across his compositions. Strange geometries are revealed by the simplification of landscape. Trees, whiskery or stout-trunked, form lattices against the light. John Nash: Artist and Countryman, the most comprehensive single-volume monograph on Nash to date, is a magnificent exploration of one artist's dedication to landscape, and to what it means to be alive in nature.
