23 June 2012 - Artist Mary Fedden dies




British artist Mary Fedden

Leading British artist Mary Fedden has died aged 96. She was born in Bristol on August 14 1915 and became one of Britain’s best-known and most sought after painters. She was elected to the Royal Academy in 1992 and made an OBE in 1997.

After leaving the Slade School of Art, Mary Fedden made a living as a jobbing painter, undertaking commissions and teaching. The two most important influences on her work were Matisse and Ben Nicholson. With their inspiration she produced paintings of cats and flowers on windowsills, old-fashioned pots, speckled birds’ eggs and playing cards - all of which became eagerly collected. Her work was underpinned by a rigorous sense of composition and the collision of brilliant, sensuous yet subtle colours, to produce blazing and bracing visions of the everyday.

Mary Fedden limited edition prints are available from Red Rag to view click on the link above.


19 June 2012 - Jack Vettriano Retrospective

Scottish artist Jack Vettriano is to hold a major retrospective of his art work in Scotland next year.The artist, famous for his paintings of women and couples in highly-charged erotic poses is planning to stage the exhibition in Glasgow.

Vettriano, who was made an OBE in 2003 for services to the visual arts, gives a robust response when asked about his detractors pointing to him copying poses from the Illustrator’s Figure Reference Manual for The Singing Butler – which became the most expensive painting by a Scottish artist when it sold for £750,000 eight years ago.
