Theodore Casimir Roussel, 1847-1926
Boddinich, Fowey RiverOil on canvas; signed13 3/4 x 17 inchesRoussel was a self-taught French artist, who settled in England in 1878. He befriended Whistler after they became neighbours in 1885, and like Whistler’s, his paintings have a confident, creamy consistency. This picture shows the Ferry Inn at Boddinick, along the Fowey River in Cornwall, which Roussel made an etching of in 1911. Over the following year, he exhibited several oil paintings of the Fowey.

Harry van der Weyden, 1868-1952
Moonlight-RyeWatercolour; signed and dated 1924, inscribed verso with title10 x 14 inchesA clever evocation of the Rye marshes by this Boston-born artist, who came to Britain on a Scholarship to the Slade at the age of 19. This ‘tonal’ style of painting, with soft twilight effects, owes much to the Japanese print revival of the 1920s, particularly the style known as shin-hanga, that was known in the West from articles in the Studio Magazine.
