Alan Cotton moved to North Devon in the 1960s and then to East Devon, where he fell in love with the area and did many paintings along the River Otter and the surrounding valley. Alan Cotton built his present house, studio and gardens, which have been developed over the years, in the village of Colaton Raleigh in East Devon. As one of Britain’s most distinguished landscape painters, Alan Cotton has been represented internationally by Messums Fine Art in Cork Street, London.

Here’s a bit of local history in our auction on 26th February 2013.

 

On the 29th December 1852, a local steam train was halted in its tracks between Dawlish and Teignmouth by the famous South Devon Railway landslip near the Parson and Clerk Nose. An amateur artist, one WP Key, captured the event in watercolour.

The picture depicts the Victorian passengers disembarking to inspect the red earthy rockfall. In the distance are the distinctive Parson and Clerk rock formations and the tunnel where the railway cuts through the rocks. The red rocky Parson preaching to the sea is a truly odd sight!. The watercolour, measuring 32.5 x 46.5cm, has a nice naïve feel and is likely to fetch between £80-£120.

This etching (EX63/56) has great depth of tone, which explains a GSPE blind stamp that indicates it was exhibited at the Glasgow Society of Painters and Etchers. A pencil inscription confirms this and dates it at 1926. The artist is William Robert Hay [1886-1964]. William Robert Hay was a painter, etcher and lettering artist who as a student won The Kings Prize for Perspective at the Westminster School of Art.

The etching, which is part of a strong group of 20th Century pictures in the selected picture auction to be held on 26th February 2013 at the Okehampton Street Saleroom in Exeter, shows workmen having their lunch at the base of a scaffolding tower close to Trafalgar square. The etching is titled Reconstruction, Trafalgar Square and has an estimate of £80-120.

Chater worked as a commercial artist and illustrator and in the 1940s and 50s. Cedric Chater designed a number of advertising posters for Imperial Leather.

 

This painting (EX63/72) by Cedric Chater is in the British tradition and is a good period piece from the mid 20th Century. The location is the White Cliffs called The Seven Sisters, near the South Downs National Park between Seaford and Chater’s home which was in Eastbourne, Sussex.
