Auction Of Ten Paintings By Bernard Myers
At St. Nicholas' Church Harvest Fair
The auction of oil paintings and watercolours featuring views of the Thames, Hogarth's Tomb and St Nicholas' Church on Chiswick Mall by distinguished local artist Bernard Myers will be a highlight of St Nicholas Harvest Fair.
Nine of the works in the sale have been donated by Bernard's widow, Pamela. The tenth work has been donated by Francis and Christabel Ames-Lewis.
A professor at the Royal College of Art, Bernard Myers (1925-2007) moved in 1987 with his wife Pamela into St Peter's Wharf, the artist's houses built by Julian Trevelyan and Mary Fedden. As a lover of Hogarth's work, and a keen member of St Nicholas' congregation, Myers was naturally drawn to the church and Hogarth's tomb as subject matter, as well as the Thames that flowed past his studio windows.
The auction offers a wonderful opportunity to acquire distinctive local views by a distinguished former Chiswick resident, who was inspired by his surroundings and its rich historical associations. The works are framed and ready to hang. Pre-sale auction estimates for the works range from £100 to £350.
Pre-sale viewing is at St Nicholas' Church St, W4 on Friday 12th October, 6.00-8.00pm.
And on the day of the auction, Saturday 13 October from 11am.
The auction, to be conducted by Sotheby's auctioneer Adrian Biddell, will be held at 3pm on Saturday 13 October in the church.
