THE PAVILIONS OF HARROGATE ANTIQUES & FINE ART FAIR

Harrogate Antiques & Fine Art Fair at the Yorkshire Showground, from 29 April -1 May 2016 has attracted the attention of Mayfair art dealer Rupert Maas of the Maas Gallery, who will be exhibiting for the first time, dealing in Victorian, Pre-Raphaelite, Romantic and Modern British paintings, watercolours, drawings, reproductive engravings and sculpture, and the work of two or three living artists. Rupert Maas has on the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow since 1995 as a picture specialist, and served on the executive committee of The Society of London Art Dealers 199.

Rupert Maas Gallery

Maas Gallery - William Henry James Boot, RBA, RI  1848-1918
Oil on canvas; signed with monogram and dated 1877; £26000

EXHIBITED: Royal Academy, 1877 no. 806
Moonrise Over Europe, Barber Institute, University of Birmingham, 2006
'When the evening twilight gathers round'
A Yorkshire painter, Boot was evidently influenced by the Pether family of painters of moonlit scenes, like Atkinson Grimshaw. He was fascinated by trees; his book Trees and How to Paint Them was published in 1883.  In it he wrote: 'We attach the greatest possible importance to winter study, for when a tree stands mapped out in all its nakedness against the sky, and every line of it can be followed from root to tip of farthermost branch' (pp. 7-8)"

Art dealers are out in force at the fair across many specialties and include Sutcliffe Contemporary Art of Harrogate, Sutcliffe Galleries of Harrogate, Plumbs Fine Art, Rowles Fine Art of Ludlow, Granta Fine Art, Graham Reed Fine Art, Carnes Fine Art, Billingbear Fine Art and Baron Fine Art.

Clocks with a local interest are on the menu at the fair with two new well known clock dealers making a debut - Edward Burd from London and Olde Time from Norfolk.

Edward Burd will bring a large selection of wall and tavern clocks by makers from across Britain including a fine Georgian period wall clock by James Hargraves of Bawtry. Hargraves was born in 1768 and worked in Swan Lane, Bawtry, dying in 1835. Edward describes this clock as in wonderful, original condition, with decorative boxwood inlay to the sturdy mahogany case. Made in about 1820, it will be priced at £4,800 and a a small drum dial wall clock with passing strike (i.e. one strike on each hour). It was made by W. Gill of Birstwith (a tiny village not far from Harrogate), in about 1830. This clock has a fine case of the best quality ‘fiddle back’ mahogany, and a convex dial. It is priced at £3,000.
