Paddy Curzon-Price
Paddy Curzon-Price (1922-2017) - A Pair of 20th Century Oil Portraits of Women

US$1,100

About

An impressive pair of 20th century British oil paintings showing two seated women by Art Workers Guild member Paddy Curzon-Price. The comfortability with which both women are positioned in their domestic settings shows Curzon-Price's ability to make her sitters feel at ease. In turn, this is visualised in the relaxed atmosphere and down-to-earth rendition of her female subjects as equal counterparts. Curzon-Price subverts the traditionally patriarchal representation of women in art, choosing to paint both an older and younger woman in everyday clothing. Both women look directly towards the viewer in assertive sitting positions, interrogating the assumed passivity of the female subject represented by the male gaze. Although the post-impressionist style shows a real New English Art Club influence it is clear Curzon-Price's position within the Art Workers Guild was key. Associated with the ideas of William Morris and the Arts and Crafts movement the group aimed to break down boundaries between fine art and craft. This ethos is apparent in Curzon-Price's sensitive painting method and high skill level. One of the artworks was a exhibited in the 1976 New English Art Club exhibition at the Mall Galleries, under the title 'Lussan, Provence', numbered 39 in the accompanying catalogue. An additional postcard is included in the sale with a note from the artist addressed to a close friend. Both artworks are presented in identical gilt effect frames with woven inserts. Both paintings are signed to the lower left and painted on board. Image Size: 34 x 23.8cm (13.4" x 9.4") Framed Size: 43.6 x 34cm (17.2" x 13.4")
