An outstanding oil painting by one of Britain’s most famous war artists, Christopher Richard Wynne Nevinson, will highlight Roseberys 30 June Fine Art auction. The painting will sit alongside work by a number of other leading artists including, Grayson Perry RA, Germaine Richier, Paul Gaugin and Mexican sculptor Armando Amaya. A prolific pastoral scene painter, etcher, and lithographer, Christopher Nevinson was the son of H. W. Nevinson, the well-known author and war correspondent. Nevinson garnered much success as a futurist painter, and as an official First World War artist, but the subject matter of the urban landscape dominates his canvases of the 1920s and 1930s. Although after the war Nevinson declared that he had given up on futurism, the geometric forms of the autumn trees in this work demonstrate a debt to his involvement with the Futurist movement.
