Very much the School of Stanley Spencer or Betty Swanwick. Guy Williams (1932 -2004) exhibited in the United States particularly the Kiyo Higashi Gallery in LA. This very unusual vibrant scene and composition creating a celebratory atmosphere of harvest and bountiful family life. Somewhat surreal and yet fun, depicting an extraordinary 1930's pram, art deco dogs, 40's clothing including wedding attire! It measures 22 inches by 19 inches. The frame is earlier, with some missing 'bobbles' and gilt. The top left of the painting is slightly discoloured and looks cloud like and would need attention. Overall a splendid 'bon viveur' picture.

I am an artist, sculptor, collector and restorer.  I have always been inspired and influenced by my love of the old. Since collecting tins, postcards, early textiles and gadgets as a teenager I have surrounded myself with “stuff”. I started trading in the 1970s from my architectural effects shop Leaded Lights and design shop Gothic in Greenwich. My stock reflects my enjoyment of the antique and the peculiar, from early Medieval to Victorian to Art Deco and industrial design.

I endeavour to hunt out the unusual - richly patinated wood, faded sun-drenched   paintwork and gently burnished ironwork.

We are based in a Victorian Gothic building in Somerset, only 15 minutes from the M5.
