This item is part of a 14 lot collection being sold at auction through Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood.

More Details

Notes

Together with a letter by Willie Barns Graham from her St Andrews address in 1997 to Michael and Margaret Snow in recognition of their letter of sympathy on her brother's death. There is reference to St Ives, Bernard Leach and her exhibition (in her 85th year) in 1997 at Art First, Cork St, London. Enclosed with the letter is a personalised printed card, signed from WBG, of an acrylic work on paper 'Night Walk, Porthmeor 2'. Lots 317 - 334 are from the estate of the late Michael Seward Snow, the property of Justin Snow. As with an earlier sale of works (see Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood 27 January 2011) this small collection was formed by exchanges of work between artists. 'Over forty years, during which I occupied studios in St Ives, or nearby, my closest friends were Ben Nicholson, Terry Frost, Dennis Mitchell and the poet WS Graham. The little collections artists make from groups or exchanges, sometimes provide interesting evidence of experiments from which the later and better known works of art have developed'. Michael Seward Snow, January 2011.
