Artist Paints a Pretty Picture
The studio archive of pictures by late Victorian and Edwardian artist George Hodgson are included in the Charterhouse two day auction on Wednesday 17th and Thursday 18th April.
“It is a fascinating look into the development as George being an artist.” Commented Richard Bromell. “There are technical still life drawings through to designs for book illustrations and he also give a glimpse of how life was lived at the turn of the 20th century, albeit viewed through romanticised spectacles!”
Being sold by a distant family there are over 50 pastel, charcoal and watercolour drawings. This archive of George Hodgson pictures, which come from a deceased estate in Dorchester, have never been on the open market before and were stored away in a an old trunk which has resulted in them retaining their bright and fresh original colours.
