It is 25 years since Arthur Berry died in July 1994. Barewall presents a collection of unseen works for sale from the estate of Arthur Berry alongside some old favourites. Some will be for sale.

This collection of original mixed media works range across 30 years of work from 1950s to the year Arthur Berry died in 1994.

It has been selected from the estate and are works which have not been seen before.

Subjects include Arthur’s view of the world through landscape, street characters, still life and urban life.

Amanda Bromley, gallery owner said: “From what perhaps might have been his homage to Van Gogh with his still life Potatoes And Jug, much in tune with his description of the Noble Chip, or the portrayal of the might of industry in his daunting and beautiful Chimney Stack, or a simple scene of a man going to the local in Early Doors or the beauty of a blooming Magnolia Tree.

"Arthur Berry captures his Potteries, one which I believe we are lucky enough to still recognise in parts today across many un-gentrified working-class industrial towns of the North, but this goes beyond one sense for when I see Arthur’s paintings I feel connected to the communities and to this place with a warmth of belonging.

"This for me is the act of a great painter, and one who is still yet to be fully discovered across the nation."

All the works were personally selected with Cynthia Berry. Barewall is delighted to share this collection with you and hope you enjoy this important exhibition of work exhibited in the 25th year since Arthur died. The show continues to August 31.
