Click here to view the exhibition   LAMORNA BIRCH IN THE SNOW
The Lander Gallery Christmas Exhibition includes some highly desirable Cornish fine art. Many of the great Cornish names are here.
Lamorna paintings are well represented as always- this time we have two of his SNOW scenes.
WHEN ICICLES HANG BY THE WALL captures the clear light of an icy morning- it was at the Royal Academy in 1944.
There is also an exquisite Cornish snowy landscape painted in 1902; it is very similar to his Royal Academy snow scene of that year and was obviously painted during the same exceptionally cold spell.The painting has a gloriously warm glow- perhaps that was something to do with his sudden new love for Houghton, the girl he was later to marry.
Christmas shopping is far more interesting among the many highly desirable works on display at the Lander Gallery this motnh.

Click here to view the exhibition   HEMY ,TUKE AND FALMOUTH
The focus is on CHALRES NAPIER HEMY (1841- 1917) and HENRY SCOTT TUKE.
These two artists worked in Falmouth; each had a boat set up as a studio in which to capture on canvas the colourful lives of the boats and the people who made their living at sea.
TUKE painted watercolours of many of the sailing vessels that arrived in Falmouth harnour, and the gallery draws attention to its examples.
CHARLES NAPIER HEMY is enjoying a rediscovery, helped by the splendid exhibition which began at Penlee in 2006 and has since been touring the country. Two of the works in that exhibtion were loaned through the Lander Gallery and now they are shown here, along with several other very impressive pictures in oils, watercolours and ink.
Commences 31st March

Commences 23rd June.
PRIVATE VIEW JUNE 22nd 7pm - 9pm.

FACES OF NEWLYN offers an impressive range of classic Newlyn School pictures, many new to the gallery. At this current time, articles in the press regularly discuss the financial advantages of investing in fine art by well established names, and point to the high prices achieved by Newlyn School works in London sales. Here is an opportunity to enjoy our own selection.
There are two paintings by Stanhope Alexander Forbes a charming little watercolour and a large dramatic oil of THE STEEL MILL. Frank Bramley is represented with two works; THE PINK NIGHT GOWN was shown at the Royal Academy in 1907. There are two outstanding watercolours by Walter Langley: one shows a familiar old Newlyn woman, the other is from his highly regarded Vollendam portfolio. William Wainwright was at Newlyn for a while; he specialised in monochrome character portraits and we have a splendid set of historical figures as well as fishermen. Edwin Harris is represented by a fine oil of a Newlyn cottage interior where an old fisherman is having his sleep disturbed as his family tickle his chin with a feather. Other Newlyn artists shown include F.M.Evans, William Banks Fortescue, Norman Garstin, T.C.Gotch, Harold Harvey, Dod Procter, Ernest Procter, Frank Richards and Ralph Todd.

Once again the Lander Gallery offers tempting ideas for Christmas gifts for loved ones.
Or maybe yourself.

Click here to view the exhibition   NATURE WATCH
Two bird portraits by Charles Simpson dominate the Nature Watch show at the Lander Gallery in January- until Februaty 14th.
While LANDER TODAY presents colourful and detailed contemporary studies of birds, flowers and animals, the LANDER CLASSICS remind us that Simpson produced illustrations of birds for books. The HERON and the SMEW which are shown at the Lander show the easy confidence with which he depicted wild creatures.
There is a charming sketch of horses by LUCY KEMP WELSH which calls to mind her illustrations for BLACK BEAUTY.
The LANDER CLASSICS on show cover a wide range of prices and styles.

The current display of classic Cornish art is constantly changing. Our website gives an idea of what we have at present, though there are usually rather more pieces on display here than we have on the net.
If you are looking for anything in particular, please do not hestitate to contact us.
Please remember we do not give valuations.

Click here to view the exhibition   FESTIVAL OF SPEED
Following the success of last summer's exhibition of original Great Western Railway posters, the Lander's 2011 Summer Show includes more original publicity not only for Great Western but also for Motor Racing.
Fanjio speeds across an original 1954 poster near a 1913 French racing car poster by Gamy. Rather more comfortable transport is suggested by Daphne Padden's ROYAL BLUE posters of the 1950s.
Railway gems include the actual artwork for DIESEL TRAINS by Smith. The poster HOURS TO MAKE, SECONDS TO BREAK is not a lithogrpah but is the actual artwork looking as though it is fresh from the artist's desk.
Domergue's MONE CARLO pin-up will give the young traveller some ideas for holidays.
Evocative images like these are much loved by collectors and you are invited to visit the Lander Gallery to see what is on show.
