A superb pair of oils on canvas Wonderfully painted Subtle use of colours Intricate detail A very pleasing pair of paintings Listed artist Bert Pugh Bert Pugh (1904-2001) He was a prolific and versatile artist, sometimes known as Sullivan Pugh, born in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire. When he was young his family moved to London, where he spent much of his life, joining the Chelsea Art Club. Pugh studied for three years at a building school, at 17 becoming an architectural and ecclesiastical draughtsman, church craftsman and woodcarver, afterwards designing bookplates and practising calligraphy. While owning a commercial art studio in the Strand, he spent evenings studying from life and painting and began to exhibit in the capital. Pugh also spent some time as a commercial artist with the advertising agency J. Walter Thompson. The 1941-2 winter number of “The Hippodrome”, noting that Pugh had two works accepted for the R A Summer Exhibition, reviewed a collection of his pictures at the Archer Gallery. He then had a studio in Buxted, Sussex, and the magazine classifying him as a romantic, commented favourably on his atmospheric Downs country scenes, figure groups, portraits and still lives, and “the artist's belief that anything is paintable that has emotional interest”. Pugh eventually lived in Cornwall, having solo exhibitions at St Tudy Paperweight Centre and Yelverton Paperweight Centre in Devon. Pugh's work was published by several companies and sold worldwide. He continued to paint until he was 94, and died in Salisbury, Wiltshire. Dates 1970's-1980's Formal gilded more modern frames (Slightly distressed) A wonderful pair of paintings for your collection
