Farmhouse Drawings And Illustrations

This amazing 1945 painting by Vanessa Bell, Charleston Drawing Room, is for sale at Messum’s (but for rather a large sum of money!). The curtain fabric, however, is available at the Charleston shop; and is to be found on the endpapers of Good Things in England.


Egon Schiele. I prefer Shiele's architecture paintings/drawings to his portraiture. The houses communicate such character in the use of colour, composition and quality. This piece, the name of which I have forgotten, appears so lonely, spaced bleakly within the frame. I like the minimalism, he's recorded the minimum and yet the house is perfectly understandable.
