Kujundzic's mediums included sculpture, clay, printmaking, metal, stained glass and weaving. His art has been exhibited in public and private collections around the world, such as Italy's Palazzo Medici-Ricardi, the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C., the National Sculpture Collection in Toronto and the Kyoto National Museum in Japan.

William McTaggart Pencil Drawing William McTaggart Pencil Drawing William McTaggart Pencil Drawing


William McTaggart (1835 - 1910)

Compositional Sketch for the Painting “Do Doggies Gang to Heaven ?” Completed in 1867.

Pencil on paper (framed)

11 x 10 cm

Provenance: via the McTaggart Family


(detail)

(Finished painting in Kelvingrove)    


This charming little sketch by Mc Taggart is one of his initial ideas for the large oil painting , now in the collection of Glasgow Museums, Kelvingrove.  The composition is full of high Victorian sentiment - and shows a grandfather in a cottage interior reading from the Bible to a little child - who stops the reading in mid-flow with the vital question... Do Dogs Go to Heaven?

This quick sketch is typical of the numerous jottings or rapid studies that McTaggart would have made before starting a painting. This must have been one of his initial ideas for the oil - as the figures are facing to the right, but are reversed in the final composition, and many of the final details still have to be resolved. The loose style is typical of McTaggart’s graphic work and it had until recently been in the collection of a family member.

These little compositional pencil sketches by the artist rarely come up for sale.

The sheet has now been mounted and framed; ready to hang on your wall.

Marion Harvey (1886 - 1971)

Study of  a Cairn Terrier: Sandy

Etching on paper  (framed)

Platemark: 20 x 15 cm

Signed in pencil, lower left and inscribed in pen, lower right: Sandy




Marion Harvey was born in Ayr in 1886. She was an accomplished Scottish artist, who specialised in the portraiture of dogs and horses. She excelled at making these charming images of little terrier dogs - this etching and dry-point of a cute Cairn Terrier and dates from around the 1930s. She has certainly caught the very concentrated stare of a little Cairn as he waits attentively for his dinner bowl to be filled - Basil certainly looks at me this way every time I go anywhere near to his doggie treats in the kitchen!

This etching is in very nice condition and comes with its original frame, although it would probably benefit from a new mount - but ready to hang on your wall.

Interesting Sheet of Architectural Studies - for Colonial Houses at the island of Grand Turk

This is an interesting document relating to the architectural history of the island of Grand Turk in the Atlantic - and shows a selection of plans and elevations for public buildings on the island. The drawing has been signed off in the bottom corner by John F. Osborne (?), Colonial Surveyor on 21st May 1902.  



The name of the island comes from a species of cactus on the island, the Turk's Cap Cactus (Melocactus intortus), which has a distinctive cap, reminiscent of a Ottoman fez.  It is here that Christopher Columbus first made landfall on his initial voyage to the New World in 1492. Grand Turk is the administrative and political capital of the Turks & Caicos Islands, and Cockburn Town has been the seat of government since 1766. This small island is bursting with  Caribbean charm - founded by Bermudan Salt Rakers some three centuries ago. The island’s Bermudan /British colonial architecture amidst the colourful, Caribbean-style local dwellings continue to be a pull for tourists. Today, many cruise ships (not more than two at a time) stop at the Carnival Cruise Terminal, toward the south end of the island, to provide guests a "sun and sand" day while transiting between Florida and the Caribbean.

An interesting archival document - please ask for a full condition report as this is very much a working drawing.

John Brunsdon (1933 - 2014)

Sharpenhoe Clappers (from Hurlington)

Etching and aquatint on paper

Signed in pencil below

Image: 44.5 x 59.5 cm

No. 77  from an edition of 100

£195 (unframed)

Iconic would like to express our sadness at the loss of this wonderful artist at the beginning of the year. Our thoughts are with his friends and family.






















Sharpenhoe is made up of four adjacent countryside areas to the north of Luton. These are Sundon Hills, Moleskin and Markham Hills, Sharpenhoe Clappers and Smithcombe Hills.

Sharpenhoe Clappers is a classic chalk escarpment and part of the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  It is the site of ancient woodland and chalk downland with excellent views  across the rolling countryside - as shown in Brunsdon’s fine print. The word 'clappers' derives from the Latin 'claperius' for a rabbit hole. Rabbit warrens provided meat, fur and leather and used to be an important part of the economy in the area.
