This work is related to the commission of a mosaic for the Clinica Pediatrica dell’Universita di Padova. From what presumably started as a visualisation of the work in situ Severini has created a presentation work that is altogether more beautiful and interesting. The mosaic floats in an ambiguous space, slightly away from the walls and behind two brutalist pillars that are stylistically in keeping with the architecture of the Clinica Pediatrica though not literal depictions. Indeed, the work eschews literalness and is a striking and detailed depiction of the mosaic thrown into relief against the neutral colours and anomalous space of its intended setting.

Olympia Fine Art & Antiques Fair

Stand C18

For the first time in a long while we will be exhibiting at the Olympia Fine Art & Antiques Fair. We have chosen to exhibit an interesting and carefully curated selection of works by British, European and American artists from the mid-20th century. As well as including a few important individual artworks by artists such as Joan Mitchell and Fernand Leger, we will be focussing on exhibiting interesting groups of works by artists such as Dennis Creffield (a mainstay of our Borough Group shows), the abstract painters John Wells and George Dannatt, and the Scottish painter Wilhelmina Barns-Graham. Most of these will be priced at between £2,000 to £30,000.
