Peter Collins ARCA (1923-2001) The Schoolroom Pen, ink and whitening 19x27cm Provenance: The Artist's Studio A stongly-painted image, with a wonderful sense of the light available in a new, post-war classroom. The schoolboys wear short trousers and - together with schoolgirls - are engrossed in a task. 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.
