‘The Cavendish Pavilion’ by Arthur Henry Andrews
Arthur Henry Andrews 1906-1966.
Arthur Andrews was a painter, print maker and teacher. Brought up in London, after graduating he held various teaching posts, before becoming head of Poole Collage and artistic advisor to Dorset County Council.
Andrews had several one man shows in Leeds and Bradford as well as group exhibitions at The Royal Academy and The Redfern Gallery amongst others.
His work is held in various public collections, including The Atkinson Art Gallery and The Russel Coates Gallery in Bournemouth. The work shown here is ‘The Cavendish Pavilion’ at Bolton Abbey, oil on canvas applied to board, circa 1935. Size 16.5” x 21.0” (42cm x 54cm).
This work shows Andrew’s using a Fauvism style – with delicious strong colours adjacent to each other and … with also perhaps a suggestion of a Japanese influence!
