Gallery Nucleus Exhibition

I caught the Ronald searle exhibition at Gallery Nucleus just before it ended last weekend.  As always it was a pleasure to see an entire room lined with Searle's artwork. The entire lower gallery space was dedicated to the Searle show- a handful of colour originals, some black & white pen drawings, reproduction 'Wine' posters, 3 coins and around a dozen lithographs.

Several TV Guide pieces were included.
 'LUCILLE BALL'


 'JED CLAMPETT OF BEVERLY HILLBILLIES'


 'JIM NABORS AS GOMER PYLE'


'ED SULLIVAN'


A very nice image from The Hunchback of Notre Dame
 'NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL SKETCH'




Promotional image for the Taltarni winery
'BACCHUS ON KANGAROO'


"In typical Searle fashion, the depiction is irreverent, but not entirely inaccurate.  You’ll notice that the Sun King’s grill is even in his preferred style of furnishings.  This painting was created for Delta Sky Magazine in 1995. "  Stalking The Belle Epoque


'LOUIS XIVTH BARBEQUEING'

Yes, the prices were rather inflated.
