"The Eggs" ~ Cedric Morris, 1944.
Sir Cedric Morris, Bt. (1889–1982) was a Welsh painter and horticulturist. He was a self-taught painter but attended the académies libres in Paris as a young man. He was a member of the art communities of Newlyn in Cornwall (1919–20), Paris (1921–6) and London (1926–39). Although he had experimented with abstraction c.1922, he resigned from the society when it moved away from representation. Between 1937 and c.1975 Morris and Lett-Haines directed the distinctly non-academic East Anglian School of Painting and Drawing; in 1940 the school was moved to Morris’s home at Benton End, Hadleigh, Suffolk, where he also cultivated a garden and bred irises.

"Still-life" ~ Earl Horter, 1939.
Earl Horter (1881-1940) was an illustrator and an etcher who concentrated on urban scenes. He was a member of the Society of Illustrators. Exhibition listings begin with the famous Pan-American Exposition of 1915 in San Francisco and continue up until his death at such places as Chicago, Philadelphia, New York and at the Corcoran Gallery biennials from 1935 to 1939.
He is better known in the art world today for the exciting collection of modern art that he amassed during his lifetime. A large portion of it was dispersed during his lifetime to meet financial needs but was reassembled at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 1999.

"Seven Green Apples" ~ Douglas Portway, 1991.
Douglas Portway was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1922. He held his first solo exhibition in 1945, and became the first South African to be awarded a travel grant from the Institute of International Education, which he used to visit the USA in 1952.
In 1956 he was asked to take part in the Venice Biennale of that year and shortly thereafter he left South Africa permanently and moved to Europe, living and working on the Spanish island of Ibiza from 1959 until the mid sixties. As his reputation in Europe grew, he had solo exhibitions at the Drian Gallery in London, and also in Paris, Ibiza and his native South Africa.
In 1972 he left Ibiza for a more temperate climate and moved to a house and studio in St. Ives, Cornwall, spending part of each year painting in France before moving there to live and work during the 1980s.
The critic James Burr wrote of Portway’s work and technique… “A highly sensitive appreciation of the evocative power of delicate surface fluctuations, which can gently charm one with his pictures…the softness of his restrained colour is occasionally punctuated by a distinct shape that is placed with deft Oriental simplicity. These forms appear to float mysteriously like signs looming out of a mist, and they belong to a personal symbolic iconography that is always quietly beguiling.”

"Blue Vase" ~ Alexei Jawlensky, 1930.
Alexei Jawlensky (1864 - 1941) originally served in the Russian Imperial Guard before deciding to pursue an art career. He attended the St.Petersburg Academy and then studied in Munich alongside Wassily Kandinksy who encouraged him to paint in the Fauvist style. Jawlensky then traveled to Paris in 1913, and adopted Cubism after seeing the work of Matisse and Picasso. After moving to Wiesbaden, Germany, he joined the Blaue Vier with Kandinsky, Klee, and Feininger. Jalwensky’s paintings evolved from portraits and religious pieces to abstract and geometric designs.
