Lot 152


George Chapman, 
British 1908-1994 - 

Farm Entrance; 

oil on paper laid down on board, inscribed with artist's details on the reverse of the board, 50.7 x 61.5 cm (ARR) 

this work relates to another work by Chapman of the same scene that was included in a retrospective on the artist at Fry Art Gallery, 'George Chapman (1908-1993) From Bardfield to the Rhondda' in 2017. As noted in the cataloguing for that work, this painting features an expressionistic sky, that demonstrates the early influence of Soutine on Chapman. In this cataloguing the work was dated to 1937/38 but it is also possible that the work was made later when Chapman lived in Great Bardfield from 1948-1960, where he became part of the artistic community alongside Edward Bawden and Michael Rothenstein.  It is possibly of Charity Farm just outside Great Bardfield. 

Chapman's work is in public collections including Fry Art Gallery, the National Museum of Wales and Southampton City Art Gallery.

With thanks to Janet Dyson for her assistance with the cataloguing of this work.
