A striking self-portrait by Constance Parish (1908–2001), executed in oil paint on board, when she was 29 years old. The quick loose style of the painting gives it a bold graphic quality, which is very apt for the 'modernist' influences around during this period.

Born in North London, she studied at Hornsey School of Art. She then became part of the Buchanan family when she married Norman, brother of David and Lilian Buchanan. They were all professional artists, who lived at The Holt in Eysham (near Oxford), and it is there where they helped form the Eynsham Arts Group. Constance retained her maiden name for all her artworks, so hence usually signed with the initials 'CP'.

Provenance: This painting has only recently come onto the market, having been kept in the family estate since 1937.

Marc has been successfully dealing in decorative antiques for over 15 years, fuelled by his lifelong passion for artefacts of the past. His workshop, a converted Methodist Sunday School, is located on the edge of Bodmin Moor, Cornwall.

He successfully mixes styles and periods to create his own unique collection of ‘delightful objects’. Good design, craftsmanship, colour and an age-worn patina all play their part in his discerning approach to buying. His selection of stock is often based on its aesthetic appeal rather than its age, and he loves to find items that have a story to tell.

Visits to Marc’s workshop and stores can be arranged by appointment.
