BADA modern British paintings specialist Harry Moore-Gwyn will be hosting a selling exhibition of works on paper by renowned British artist Sir George Clausen (1852-1944) at The Art & Antiques Fair, Olympia this summer.

A key figure in the world of English Impressionism, the exhibition will include over 20 works by Clausen, some previously unseen, including landscape pastels and watercolours, figure and portrait studies, still lifes and sketches for larger works.

One such sketch is the study for ‘Gleaners Coming Home’ (pictured right), a fine pastel drawing for one of the artists most celebrated works, the figure sketched can be seen on the far right of Clausen’s original work (see below), which is currently in the Tate Collection, on loan to Compton Verney House.

With prices starting from as little as £1,000, the selling exhibition offers collectors an affordable opportunity to own a piece of Clausen’s work, as Harry Moore-Gwyn explains: “Whilst his work on paper has always been highly sought-after, making as much as £500,000 at auction, the majority of his landscapes, figure studies and sketches still represent astonishing value for money for the collector.”

The Art & Antiques Fair, Olympia opens with a Collectors’ Preview on June 26 and runs until July 2nd, a full catalogue of the Sir George Clausen exhibition will be available a week of so before the fair, and all works will be available for sale from the Moore-Gwyn Fine Art Stand.
