JD Fergusson (1874-1961)an unmissable opportunity
In a week’s time we shall be returning to their owner the two pictures and a sculpture by J.D. Fergusson (1874-1961) shown here. Before they leave us we are able to offer them at very special and unrepeatable prices.
These three works span Fergusson’s long and spectacular career. Supper Dancers dates from his earliest years in Paris, around 1907-8, when he was making a living from illustrations drawn for an American trade magazine, several of which, like this he turned into dramatic watercolours reflecting the vivid nightlife of pre-war Paris.
Kelvin Valley was painted in1942 when Fergusson was living in Glasgow’s west end, close to the River Kelvin. The adjacent Botanic Gardens and the river were to become his favourite Scottish subjects. Goat stems from his visits to Wales after 1919 and is one of his most popular sculptures, cast in brass from the original plaster.
They will remain on sale until Saturday 25th March…
