Review Entries for Day Friday, March 22, 2013

michael seward snow's art reference library for auction 21st august 2013

Michael Seward Snow's art reference library for auction 21st August 2013

The collection reflects the influence of a previous generation of ground-breaking artists, who painted in the 'Warmth of the Sun' and their own earlier influences of Turner, Matisse, Braque, Picasso and Mondrian, etc.

The history of art is covered, constructivism and abstraction are explored and there are also many works on sculpture.

There are catalogues, books and collections on artists such as Terry Frost, Patrick Heron, Peter Lanyon, Ben Nicholson, Roger Hilton, Tony O'Malley, Alfred Wallis, Byran Winter, etc.

The second part of the library consists of poetry books, with an extensive collection on the Cornish poet (who was a personal friend of Michael Snow) WS Graham.
