    Original Ralph Steadman artwork

    £2,500.00

    A fine pen drawing of Charlie Chaplin by Ralph Steadman

    For Sale: £2,500


    Ralph Steadman (1936 - ) is a British artist & cartoonist best known for his work with American author Hunter S Thompson, illustrating both Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Loathing on the Campaign trail '72.

    Their 40 year friendship included coverage of the Watergate Scandals and numerous articles in Rolling Stone magazine for which Steadman still holds the position of Gardening Correspondent.

    Through his relationship with Thompson, Steadman has become a hero of America's counter culture and a godfather of 'Gonzo' journalism, making their readers look at the world through the same "skewed, booze sodden, drug-addled prism"

    Steadman has also illustrated classics such as Lewis Caroll's Alice in Wonderland (for which he won the Francis Williams Illustration Award) and Robert Lewis Stevenson's Treasure Island.

    He is also a prolific artist who has produced thousands of groundbreaking and influential artworks over his 40 year career.

    This 18½ x 11cm white card features an original pen drawing of Charlie Chaplin by Ralph Steadman. Steadman has signed and dated the piece "2009". The piece is quintessentially Steadman with long sharp pen strokes.

    Why Chaplin? In 1999 Steadman was commissioned by the Royal Mail to produce a design for a 64p Charlie Chaplin postage stamp for a series of stamps titled 'Entertainers'. Others in the series included a 19p featuring Freddie Mercury by Peter Blake a 26p featuring Bobby Moore by M White, and a 44p Dalek (Doctor Who) by Lord Snowden.

    Steadman's works are increasingly popular with collectors. A limited edition print, one of 65, sold for $4,000 way back in 2004. 11 years on we are asking just £2,500 ($3,875) for this ORIGINAL artwork.

    A great opportunity for a fan of Gonzo journalism, an art collector, or a postage stamp collector. It would make your collection unique!

    Paul Signac autograph manuscript and sketches

    £8,950.00

    • A fascinating document by of one of the most significant French artists of the 20th century.

    Paul Signac (1863-1935) was a French Neo-Impressionist painter who developed the style of Pointilism along with George Seurat.

    Signac worked alongside many of the greatest artists of the era, including Claude Monet, Henri Matisse, Camille Pissarro and Odilon Redon, and shared a close friendship with Vincent van Gough.

    In 1884 Signac was one of the four founding members of the Société des Artistes Indépendants, an association which hosted major exhibitions and set important artistic trends for more than three decades.

    He also wrote several important works on the theory of art, and throughout his life served as both an inspiration and a patron to younger artists.

     This four page manuscript features a series of pencil drawings and sketches, along with lengthy annotations in French which offer an insight into Paul Signac's artistic process.

    The rough illustrations on page one of the manuscript include notes referring to colours and background scenery of a possible future work:

    "Opposite a white palace, with pink line, harmony in pink, with green blinds… Communal Palace.. retouching Gozzoli virgin fresco…blue background…"

    The second page features four individual sketches, with figures and religious imagery such as a virgin and an angel. These scenes are accompanied by notes, which read in part:

    "The small virgin in white,…right wall with chorus, landscape with sun, white, pink…a clown scene with the dog and cat under the bed...the chapel of St. Martin…"

    The third page include a lengthy annotation which reads in part "...the dry aspect that the murals research and the shapes can achieve…", along with a quick line sketch which is developed more fully on the fourth page.

    This second version of the sketch depicts a small cottage on a shoreline, with a large cliff face rising up behind it.

    Signac had a love of sailing, spending many summers throughout his life exploring the French coast, and the shorelines in the South of France – perhaps including this very scene - were amongst his most popular subjects.

    Ronnie Wood sketch of Jeff Beck

    • A sketch capturing life on the road by Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood

    Ronnie Wood is a celebrated musician and artist, who has spent more than 40 years as a member of The Rolling Stones.

    Wood began his music career with The Birds, before joining The Jeff Beck Group as a bassist in 1967 and releasing two successful albums.

    In 1969 he left the band to join Faces along with Rod Stewart, and co-wrote classic songs such as 'Stay With Me' and 'Ooh La La', along with releasing four hit albums and a solo album.

    In 1974 Wood unofficially joined The Rolling Stones, replacing the departing Mick Taylor, and has remained a permanent member of the band ever since.  

    In addition to his career as a musician, Wood is an accomplished and respected artist whose work has been exhibited around the world.

     

    This sketch features the back of legendary guitarist Jeff Beck's head, drawn from the view of the backseat of a car.

    Although the sketch is undated, Wood toured extensively with The Jeff Beck Group throughout the late 1960s, and probably spent a lot of time peering at the back of Beck's head whilst they were on the road.

    Given his passion for sketching, it seems likely he decided to record the view for posterity, or even just as a joke for himself.

    The sketch, which measures 26.8 x 21.1cm, is drawn in blue ballpoint pen on a sheet, with some wear to the edges and uneven trimming to the left side.

    Salvador Dali signed drawing

    Fantastic signed Dali drawing of a dragon

    For Sale: £25,000

    Salvador Dali was a Spanish surrealist painter best known for his bizarre artworks.

    He is widely considered to be one of the leaders of the Surrealist Movement and his work The Persistence of Memory (1931), which shows soft, melting pocket watches on a beach, is one of the most recognisable surrealist paintings around. Dali regularly dabbled in other forms of art besides painting.

    He created many surrealist sculptures including Lobster Telephone, which consists of a plastic telephone with a plastic lobster attached to the handset.

    During his lifetime, Dali also expressed his artistic talent through film, photography and fashion.

    Dali bacame the most expensive Surrealist artist at auction when his 1929 portrait of poet Paul Eluard sold for £13½m in 2011.

    Description:

    A large Salvador Dali drawing of a fire breathing dragon in orange crayon, accompanied by Dali's bold signature, dated 1968, and dedication 'Pour David', drawn in an Air France menu.

    The menu measures approximately 11x17 inches (28x43cm). The drawing, measuring approximately 5½x8 inches (14cmx20cm), is elaborate with great detail. One can only assume it was a good 15-20 minutes in the making, far superior to a 'normal' sketch.

    The Air France menu is for a private charter for the 'Far West Ski Association' on April 30, 1968, for a flight between Geneva-Montreal-Los Angeles.

    Founded in 1930, the Far West Ski Association (FWSA) is a non-profit, volunteer organization with emphasis on skier safety, ski travel, ski area development, communications, club programs and family ski involvement. The FWSA organised annual European ski trips for members in the 1960s.

    This is only the second Dali drawing that we have had the pleasure of offering. The previous item was a small Dali pencil drawing that achieved £18,000 in 2012.

    A major rarity.

    • Original double-sided sheet of sketches from Stuart Sutcliffe - the original Beatles bassist

    Stuart Sutcliffe (1940-1962), often referred to as "The Fifth Beatle" (among others) was the original bassist for The Beatles. As the band played in Hamburg, he famously met the noted photographer Astrid Kirchherr, and dediced to enroll in the Hamburg College of Art, quitting the band to pursue a career as an artist.

    While studying in Hamburg, Sutcliffe began experienceing sever headaches, and in 1962 he tragically died from an aneurysm.

    These original unsigned sketches by Sutcliffe occupy an 8" x 10.5" sheet from a sketchbook. There are four separate images in total covering both sides of an off white page.

    The beautiful drawings, which are in fine condition, come with a letter of provenance which states how the sketchbook was the property of the Sutcliffe estate until it was sold in 2003 at a Bonhams auction.

    A wonderful piece from the artist, suggesting that his career as an artist may have been as successful as The Beatles' as musicians.

     

  • Winston Churchill signed document and original press photographs

    • A document signed by one of the most significant world leaders in 20th century history

    Winston Churchill (1874 –1965) was a politician and statesman who twice served as British Prime Minister, and is regarded as one of the most influential people in British history.

    Churchill led Britain to victory against Nazi Germany during WWII, with his regular speeches and broadcasts inspiring resistance against Adolf Hitler during the darkest days of the conflict.

    In 1963 he became the first person to be declared an honorary citizen of the United States, and following his death in 1965 he was granted a state funeral by Queen Elizabeth II to mark his service to the nation.

    In addition to his political career, Churchill was a renowned writer and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953.

    He was also an accomplished painter, and his paintings remain highly sought-after by collectors today.

    This document relates to the naturalization of a Russian immigrant and his family prior to WWI.

    Certificates of Naturalization could be issued to any 'alien' who had lived in Britain for more than five years.

    These applications were then signed off personally by the Secretary of State for the Home Office, a role to which Churchill was promoted in 1910.

    At just 35 years old, he was the second-youngest politician in British history to ever hold the position.

    The two-page document is dated September 16, 1911, and bears Churchill's signature on the second page.

    The document includes pencil annotations in the top right corners of both sheets, and has minor soiling.

    Also included is a collection of 15 original wartime press photographs featuring Winston Churchill on several occasions.

    The black and white photographs come in different sizes, and feature their original press captions pasted onto the rear.

    A superb collection of items relating to the 20th century's 'Greatest Briton'.
