About

Big Ben with the Palace of Westminster in London with London Bridge in the snow, by the River Thames, England. Bert was a prolific and versatile artist, sometimes known as Sullivan Pugh, born in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire. When he was young his family moved to London, where he spent much of his life, joining the Chelsea Art Club. Pugh studied for three years at a building school, at 17 becoming an architectural and ecclesiastical draughtsman, church craftsman, and woodcarver, afterward designing bookplates and practicing calligraphy. While owning a commercial art studio in the Strand, he spent evenings studying from life and painting and began to exhibit in the capital. Pugh also spent some time as a commercial artist with the advertising agency J. Walter Thompson. The 1941-2 winter number of “The Hippodrome”, noting that Pugh had two works accepted for the R A Summer Exhibition, reviewed a collection of his pictures at the Archer Gallery. He then had a studio in Buxted, Sussex, and the magazine classifying him as a romantic, commented favorably on his atmospheric Downs country scenes, figure groups, portraits and still lives, and “the artist's belief that anything is paintable that has an emotional interest”. Pugh eventually lived in Cornwall, having solo exhibitions at St Tudy Paperweight Centre and Yelverton Paperweight Centre in Devon. Pugh's work was published by several companies and sold worldwide. He continued to paint until he was 94 and died in Salisbury, Wiltshire. This piece must have been painted for one of the publishing houses that employed him, hence the stamp on the reverse
