About the Item

St Ives Shadows is an Original Painting by Eleanor Woolley. Painted in the Artist's Gloucestershire Studio, St Ives Shadows is inspired by a trip to Cornwall last Summer. Photographs were taken and sketches of the beach goers were made on St Ive's lovely beach. The bathers can be seen putting up sun shades, digging in the sand and walking off to the waters edge. The brush strokes are impasto style and a palette knife is used some places, creating thick and fluid movement.

Her first true love for painting came from an inspirational Art teacher at Haberdashers Monmouth School for Girls where she started painting in Oils at thirteen years old. Here she learnt to paint using classic oil painting techniques, and was drawn to the figure from early life drawing lessons. During this period she was fortunate enough to work under Mary Fedden in her studio and with Portrait Sculptor Peter Lambda with whom she further developed her technique and composition. After gaining her BA Hons in Sculpture at Leeds University Eleanor travelled for some time in Asia before coming home to study Furniture making. Eleanor worked as a Cabinet maker and a Restorer before returning to Fine Art painting. Eleanor’s inspiration is taken from her surroundings where she has a love for the every day things, often passed by without a second thought. Eleanor’s paintings are vibrant, often painted Plein air and finished in the studio. Starting with bold outlines, many layers of paint are used to create the depth of colour. Her paintings are spontaneous, using washes of oil to create the desired form. Often finishing with a palette knife producing a pleasing texture. Her current work is inspired by the landscape of the Cotswolds, and contrasted with long shadows created by figures in urban landscapes.

  • Froid du l'Etang, French Expressionist Oil on Canvas Lake Landscape
    Located in Cotignac, FR
    Mid 20th Century French Expressionist oil on canvas of a lake in its frozen landscape by Jacques Pinon. The painting is signed bottom right and is titled on the stretcher and signed to the back of the canvas. Pinon was noted as an artist in various mediums as well as painting, including tapestry and stained glass. His appreciation of colours and forms are very evident in this painting where he has captured a winter landscape but with subtle colours and forms giving movement and a jewel like feeling to the composition. The cold frosty light of the day animating a rural landscape, his use of layers of colour against raw canvas giving the feeling of the glassy lake. Jacques Pinon was a 'Renaissance Man', accomplished in many aspects of art and literature. he painted, worked in stained glass as well as sculpture and tapestry - he studied and worked at the National School of Decorative Art of Aubusson. He was also a poet and published writer. “All the forms of expression of the artist Jacques Pinon are brought together. A journey of fabulous encounters for this artist, his work is impressive, not to mention his work in collaboration with very great artists." Pinon exhibited extensively and internationally including a major exhibition in PARIS in 1954. “JAZZ.HOT” alongside Dali – Courtaud – (les) Delaunays – Dubuffet – Duffy – Leger and Mondrian. He also an exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art – Sacred Art Salon in 1960 in PARIS, at the Salomon Guggenheim Museum in New York and the Foundation Royaumont. His tapestries were exhibited in France in 1969 in the city of Lyon at the Galerie Verrières with GilioliI and Lurcat. His painting and sculpture are at the crossroads of several universes. Lively and luminous like a Corrida afternoon, the light reminds us of the work the artist did for the stained glass windows, he plays with both using different techniques and styles and his thirst for discovering new forms of expression. He came from a noted family of artist and artisans. His great-uncle was Alfred de Musset; his great-grandfather and his grandfather both Courtots from the Gobelins factory in Paris, and his family were all friends of Rodin. In 1952, his meeting with the architect Le Corbusier was a close collaboration around projects carried out with Lucien Herve...
