HISTORY. (Mainsforth Hall)
Mainsforth is a small village in County Durham, in England. It is situated to the east of Ferryhill, and lies within the ecclesiastical parish of Bishop Middleham The earliest settlement in Mainsforth may have been on Marble (Narble Hill).
-
Mainsforth Hall was a significant building in the centre of this small village, until its demolition in the 1960s. The Hall was for many years the dwelling of the Surtees family. The most famous member of the family was Robert Surtees (1779-1834), the great County Durham historian.
-
Today the hamlet contains several farms and older cottages and some modern executive style detached dwellings. It retains its character principally because of the many trees in the village and because of the retention of the wall of Mainsforth Hall in the centre of the village.

Huge 19thc Portrait Lady Dunbar of Mochrum By John Horsburgh Genre Figurative Paintings,Chow Dogs,
We are pleased to offer for sale this lovely three quarter length portrait of an elegant Lady, standing with her chow chow dog beside her, by the Scottish artist John Horsburgh 1835-1924, who has signed the painting Horsburgh Edin' and indistinctly dated it, possibly 1901, in the lower right hand corner. The lady is wearing a large cream coloured hat decorated with ostrich feathers on her upswept auburn hair. She is wearing a cream, high necked tea gown, decorated with cream lace on the bodice, down the skirt, around the upper sleeves and on the wrist, and has a gold coloured wrap edged with cream feathers draped over her wrist. The lace neckline of the dress is backed by turquoise material, which matches the turquoise jewellery that she is wearing, including a heart shaped pendant, a long gold necklace with turquoise beads, and two diamond and turquoise rings, as well as a diamond bangle on each wrist and a diamond ring on her right hand.
-
We thought it might be interesting to discover the history of the chow chow dog in Scotland and found that a lady by the name of Lady Dunbar of Mochrum wrote a book about chows in 1914, which had two more editions published until 1924 and is still well regarded today. We saw a photograph of this lady with two of her blue chows and it is therefore a strong possibility that this is her, but details about her are limited, other than that we think she was the wife of the 9th Baronet of Mochrum.
-
John Horsburgh, 1835-1924 was born on 6th February 1835 in Eddleston, Peeblesshire, the son of a shoemaker. He was apprenticed to a silk mercer in Edinburgh in his youth, but his interest soon turned to photography, and by 1863, he had set up his studio in Edinburgh in South Bridge, which moved briefly to 17 Princes Street and finally to 131 Princes Street by 1868. By the 1871 Census, he was living at 13 Abbortsford Park Edinburgh and he was employing 3 photographers and 3 artists, presumably to colour in the photograhs, which was often done in those times. In the 1881 Census he was a man of 46, listed as an Artist and Photographer and living at 10 Strathearn Road.
-
Between 1889 and 1898, his business changed to John Horsburgh & Son (This son being John Alfred Horsburgh, born 1862, who also painted). In 1891 he was living at 'Albania', 48 St. Albans Edinburgh where he was working from home as an Art Consultant and Painter. After 1898, when John Senior retired from the photography business, the business became John A. Horsburgh until 1915 at 4 West Maitland Street. By the 1901 Census, he was listed as a Retired Artist and Portraitist at Aberdour House, Aberdour, Fife. (This house was used by Admiral Beatty of Jutland fame during WWI) However, he was still offering his services as a portraitist in the 1920s, according to his letter head, where he offered portraitute without tedious life sittings at The Langham Hotel in London, in private residences, chambers and clubs, and in Corstorphine in Edinburgh. Possibly he based his portraits on photographs to avoid the sittings). At some stage, he was apparently elected a Fellow of the Royal Scottish Society of Arts, as some of his paintings show FRSSA after the signature.
-
John Horsburgh died at the end of September 1924, as his obituary appeared in The Scotsman on 1st October 1924. Anyone wishing to see more examples of his work, details of his family life (he had 10 children by his wife Agnes, nee McIntosh, who he married in 1856, 8 of whom survived him).

Affordable Fine Art Important Surrealist Oil Paintings Manner of Lucien Coutaud (1904-1977) French Oil Portraits
A distinguished study closely associated with works by French Surrealist Lucien Coutaud (b. Meynes 1904-d.Paris 1977)
-
A large, bold and beautiful surrealist composition depicting The Four Seasons, somewhat reminiscent of the work of Lucien Coutaud (1904-1977). There are several annotations on the stretcher bars, and the previous owner had attributed the work to Franco-Spanish artist Juana Faure, although this remains unsubstantiated.
This painting is certainly the work of an artist who did theatre decors or murals.
A very decorative and original painting full of interest and colour, truely a stunning piece.
-
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Son of a provencal goldsmith, Lucien Coutaud studied at the Beaux-Arts Academy in Nîmes from 1920, where he was a student of Armand Coussens, an excellent engraver.He moved in Paris in 1924, where he attended the free academies of Montparnasse.
-
The young Coutaud is interested in the Louvre Primitives, but also in the works of Chirico, Max Ernst and Paul Klee.
He was later admitted to the Ecole des Arts Décoratifs in the same year.
-
In April 1928, he is back in Paris and in 1929 painted his first important paintings: La Bicyclette, Female and Soldier, Soldiers arresting a spy, Young Girl with three wheels. In 1930 he produced his first etchings, drypoint on zinc : Rhineland Souvenir, Three Amazons, The Cyclist, The Morning. He enters into relationship with the writer Jean Blanzat.
-
In 1931, the Quatre Chemins gallery in Paris organized his first solo exhibition. In 1932, he worked almost exclusively with gouache, painting many bouquets of flowers and large esoteric compositions. He also creates stage sets and costumes for Le Chateau des Papes.
-
He attended many events of the avant-garde group, alongside the surrealists. During these years he affirms his graphic style, close to surrealism, through the use of an unusual imaging where dreams and reality intertwine.
-
The characters represented in his paintings lose their flesh, reduced to the state of skeletons, then fragmented and deprivated of faces in the manner of mannequins or robots, only retaining their sexuality to keep a track of humanity. Reformed, he created sets,costumes for the theater, tapestries revives engraving.
-
His figurative style, evolving into oneiric abstraction, is close to surrealism, presenting with southern colors the bullfighting poetry, the drama of death. This painter-poet who was a friend of Jean Blanzat, Fraigneau, Marc Bernard, Jean-Louis Barrault, Oscar Dominguez, Paul Eluard, Picasso, Jacques Prévert, Boris Vian, Gilbert Lely, Jean Paul Sartre, Yves Tanguy, and Félix Labisse never ceased to assert his independence. Lucien Coutaud invented Éroticomagie, which is a painting of a world centered on an individual and his metamorphosis, but always with a sexual connotation, like the impressive series of "Taureaumagies" or the "Swans-People". The Éroticomagie is a carnal and dreamlike fusion of Eros and magic, a reflection of his inner world.
-
The painter's world, which he delivers through his paintings of dream fragments is completed steps by steps over them time. The artist paints indeed various subjects that populate his imagination: "Characters, vegetable and mineral houses, metamorphoses, large tracts of land and irons." He then appropriates these issues and transpose them into another poetic reality.

Oil Painting of Horses In A Landscape After George Stubbs (1724-1806)
I am delighted to offer this huge oil acrylic oil painting on canvas of wild horses in a rural landscape beautifully executed in the style of similar works by the famous equine artist George Stubbs.
-
The painting is of good quality featuring a very popular subject matter which will appeal to a wide audience and is extremely well painted by a very competent English artist who has signed in the llower right bottom corner as P.English.
-
ABOUT ARTIST GEORGE STUBBS (1724-1806 )
Stubbs was born in Liverpool, the son of a currier, or leather-dresser, John Stubbs, and his wife Mary.
Stubbs worked at his father's trade until the age of 15 or 16, at which point he told his father that he wished to become a painter.
-
Stubbs subsequently approached the Lancashire painter and engraver Hamlet Winstanley, and was briefly engaged by him in a sort of apprenticeship relationship, probably not more than several weeks in duration.Having initially demonstrated his abilities and agreed to do some copying work, Stubbs had access to and opportunity to study the collection at Knowsley Hall, the estate where Winstanley was then residing
-
Thereafter as an artist he was self-taught. He had had a passion for anatomy from his childhood,[2] and in or around 1744, he moved to York, in the North of England, to pursue his ambition to study the subject under experts.
-
In 1754 Stubbs visited Italy.Forty years later he told Ozias Humphry that his motive for going to Italy was, "to convince himself that nature was and is always superior to art whether Greek or Roman, and having renewed this conviction he immediately resolved upon returning home".
-
In 1756 he rented a farmhouse in the village of Horkstow, Lincolnshire, and spent 18 months dissecting horses, assisted by his common-law wife, Mary Spencer.He moved to London in about 1759 and in 1766 published The anatomy of the Horse.
The original drawings are now in the collection of the Royal Academy.
-
Even before his book was published, Stubbs's drawings were seen by leading aristocratic patrons, who recognised that his work was more accurate than that of earlier horse painters such as James Seymour, Peter Tillemans and John Wootton. In 1759 the 3rd Duke of Richmond commissioned three large pictures from him, and his career was soon secure.
-
By 1763 he had produced works for several more dukes and other lords and was able to buy a house in Marylebone, a fashionable part of London, where he lived for the rest of his life.
-
His most famous work is probably Whistlejacket, a painting of a prancing horse commissioned by the 2nd Marquess of Rockingham, which is now in the National Gallery in London. This and two other paintings carried out for Rockingham break with convention in having plain backgrounds.
-
Throughout the 1760s he produced a wide range of individual and group portraits of horses, sometimes accompanied by hounds. He often painted horses with their grooms, whom he always painted as individuals.
-
He remained active into his old age. In the 1780s he produced a pastoral series called Haymakers and Reapers, and in the early 1790s he enjoyed the patronage of the Prince of Wales, whom he painted on horseback in 1791.
-
Stubbs's died at the age of 81 on 10 July 1806, in London.
-
Stubbs had a son George Townly Stubbs who became an engraver and printmaker.
-
DATELINE
This painting in our opinion dates somewhere upwards possibly from the 1950's- 1960's latest based on the frame design and is thought to be at least 60 years of age.

FRAME
The antique gilt and plater frame is a good example in excellent condition and really makes the picture look stunning.

Snowdonia Landscape North Wales By John Baragwanath King Edwardian Oil Painting
I am pleased to offer for sale this huge and beautifully toned, autumnal landscape watercolour and gouache by the artist John Baragwanath King, who has signed the painting in the lower right hand corner.

The location is considered to be a lake view near Snowdonia in North Wales with the famous mountain range depicted in the background.
-
SNOWDON is the highest mountain in Wales, at an elevation of 1,085 metres above sea level, and the highest point in the British Isles outside the Scottish Highlands.
It is located in Snowdonia National Park in Gwynedd.
-
SNOWDONIA (Welsh: Eryri) is a mountainous region in north west Wales and a national park of 823 square miles (2,130 km2) in area. It was the first to be designated of the three national parks in Wales, in 1951.
-
There is a tranquil lake, with a boathouse with several boats moored alongside and smoke issuing from its chimney and a snow-capped mountain in the distance.
There is a road or track alongside the edge of the lake and, in the distance, what appears to be a horse-drawn charabanc or bus, with people on the top deck looking at the lake.
There were such charabancs in the Lake District in the Edwardian period, taking tourists around the lakes.
-
ABOUT THE ARTIST
JOHN BARAGWANATH KING 1864-1939, was born at Phillack, near Hayle in Cornwall. He originally trained as an engineer, but gave it up to become an artist. He painted principally in watercolours, but painted some oils, mostly marines and coastal scenes. He lived with his wife Helen, (nee James) and eventually their daughter Gladys Baragwanath in St. Austell in Cornwall, but maintained a studio at 55 Connaught Avenue, Plymouth, Devon. He exhibited 1903-1914, 1 painting at the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour and 48 at the Baillie Gallery. He also exhibited in Paris, Brussels, Florence, and Berlin.
-
Apart from his artistic career, he was an authority on Cornish history and was made a Bard in 1930. He took as his Bardic name Baragwanath, which means 'wheaten bread' in Cornish. He died at his home Westbourne, St. Austell, Cornwall on 15th April, 1939.
-
One of his paintings was purchased by Queen Alexandra and then further works by King Edward VII. We have read on google that he fell out of favour, after selling one of his paintings to Kaiser Wilhelm just prior to WWI, but how accurate this is, we do not know.
-
He also published 'Arthur and Others in Cornwall' and other works.
-
His biographical details may be found in The Dictionary of British Artists, by The Collectors Club and The Dictionary of British Artist by Grant M. Waters.
-
