Peter Collins ARCA (1923-2001) Design for Brochure for Panorama Holidays, 1966, Spain, Italy. Pen, ink and watercolour 30x21cm Provenance: The Artist's Studio As a graphic designer, Collins produced many brochures such as these. With his fondness for life drawing, he was perhaps a natural choice for the bikini-clad inhabitants of the pages of a holiday brochure. Collins's first job was at an advertising agency, in the commercial studio, whilst he attended evening art classes. World War II interrupted his career and he joined the Royal Artillery (of the British Army), teaching painting and drawing in the Education Corps - whilst simultaneously teaching at St Martin's School of Art, part time. Following the war Collins studied at the Royal College of Art, winning a scholarship. Leaving in 1950 he then worked as a commercial artist producing some well-known posters for clients including British Railways and British European Airways. He was the Art Director at Odhams Press and spent time designing for both ICI and Shell. With his wife Georgette he created the 'Bacombe Galleries' in Sussex, converting a group of buildings. In 1975 they again converted buildings, this time Stanley Studios in Chelsea which were scheduled for redevelopment; many artists had worked there, probably the most famous being Elizabeth Frink. Combining an artist's studio and a single residence at Stanley Studios the Collinses were immersed in Chelsea's art scene and proceeded to fill the place with art, antiques, scupture and curios.
