If you have been to Tate Britain’s show The Vorticists: A Manifesto for a Modern World you will have seen several great works by Henri Gaudier-Brzeska. Tate also has in its collection two fascinating sketches by Gaudier-Brzeska’s contemporary Horace Brodzky of the artist’s London studio that was located underneath a noisy railway arch in Putney.

Gaudier-Brzeszka made a bronze bust portrait of Brodzky which is also in Tate’s collection. The arches are still there but the studio is long gone.

Dear Chris Stephens,
as you curated the last Lanyon exhibition, I thought I might approach you with a question. I bought a painting at Criterion's, London, which is signed on the back with the words "NEWLYN" and "LANYON". The auction house knew nothing, and I really don't know either. I did't find any contact on the webiste, so if you read this, please get back to me. I can provide images and the painting is in my flat in London.
thanks.

I have an early Frank Hodgkinson paining which you might find interesting.
Would like you to look at some images of it as I cannot find out myself about the painting and need your expertise.

BR,

Norman
