HENRY MILLER FINE ART
SPRING 2017 EXHIBITION: WORK FROM THE COLLECTIONS OF NOEL COWARD,
AUGUSTUS JOHN AND BRIAN SEWELL
Henry Miller brings his collection of paintings, drawings, photography and prints to the
Coningsby Gallery for the first time between 27th February and 11th March 2017. The
collection includes Keith Vaughan, Glynn Warren Philpot, John Minton, Jean Cocteau, Pavel
Tchelitchew, and Noel Coward.
Unbound by any particular time period or style, the collection is curated thematically around
representations of the male form. The central theme enables the collection to display older
pieces alongside more contemporary works, and in doing so, creates a stunning visual
representation of the male form through the ages.
Particular works of interest include Dancing Men (Tanzende Männer), a lithograph by Erich
Heckel from 1917, a wonderfully simple piece of German Expressionism which flouts
accepted societal norms of the dance hall and which becomes all the more extraordinary
when one considers when it was created.
Also of note is an early self-portrait by Edgar Holloway, a self-taught artist, who created a
series of self-portraits throughout his life. This work is particularly sensitive and captivating,
and especially extraordinary as it was created when the artist was only 18.
The private view will take place on 2nd March 2016 at 6pm to 8.30pm. Please contact
email@example.com to be included on the guest list.
