Harry John Pearson
Portrait of a Girl in an Interior - British 20's Art Deco portrait oil painting

1926

About

This charming Art Deco twenties portrait oil painting is by noted British portrait artist Harry John Pearson. Famous for his paintings of children, he exhibited extensively throughout his career including 147 paintings alone at the Royal Society of British Artists between 1915-30. This painting may well have been an exhibited work under a different title. The painting was on the cover of Woman's Pictorial November 27th 1926 which we have a copy of and it is shown in the photoographs. The painting is of a young girl, probably Audrey Hughes, opening a door into a room with paintings against the wall. She is wearing a blue dress with red belt and collar. This is an excellent example of Pearson's work and a good size. Signed lower right. Provenance. Sussex estate. Woman's Pictorial cover November 27th 1926 (vol 12 No. 307) Housed in a complementary frame, 27 inches by 23 inches and in good condition. Harry John Pearson RBA (1872-1933) was best-known for his portrait and figure subjects, in particular of children and society women. Painting during the inter-war period, his portraits typify the 1920s art deco style, featuring wonderful 1920s dress. Pearson trained at the Royal Academy Schools and exhibited at the Royal Academy 1916-27. A successful commercial artist, he produced striking advertising images for magazines such as Women's Pictorial, The Illustrated London News and Homes and Gardens. He exhibited 147 paintings with the Royal Society of British Artists, to which he was elected a full member in 1915, and he was later elected president of the Langham Sketch Club. He also exhibited with the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, the Royal West of England Academy, the International Society and the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool. He was asked by Princess Marie Louise to provide a miniature painting for Queen Mary’s dolls’ house, the largest, most beautiful and most famous dolls’ house in the world, which is filled with thousands of objects made by leading artists, designers and craftsmen. Works by Pearson are held in local and national public collections in the UK, including the National Museum Wales. Exhibited: Dudley Gallery 2, Fine Art Society 2, Goupil Gallery 3, International Society 3, Walker Art gallery, Liverpool 3, Royal Society of Portrait Painters 4, Royal Academy 7, Royal Society of British Artists 147, Royal Institute of Oil Painters 19.
