Dorothy Josephine Coke RWS, NEAC (1897-1979) was a painter, chiefly in watercolour, and printmaker of landscapes, town scenes, still life, and portraits. Born at South¬end-in-Sea in Essex she studied art at the Slade School under Tonks, and although she had a thorough training in oil painting, she became more interested in drawing and watercolour and in the 1920s and 1930s also in printmaking. Dorothy Coke exhibited widely, including at the Royal Academy, Royal Watercolour Society, and the New English Art Club and she was elected NEAC 1919, ARWS 1935, and a full RWS member 1943. In 1940 she was appointed an official war artist and concentrated on painting the womens' services. Her work is represented in the Imperial War Museum. At that time she began to teach at Brighton College of Art and remained there until 1963. She lived at Rottingdean in East Sussex from 1938.

I think I was always destined to have an interest in the world of Modern British Art and 20th Century design. My father wrote books on the subject in the 1970s and having grown up (literally!) surrounded by mainly 20th Century art, I began to take an interest myself in the late 1990s. My personal taste is in the work of artists such as Wlhelmina Barns-Graham, Lynn Chadwick, Alan Davie, Terry Frost, William Gear and Julian Trevelyan. In regard to furniture I collect, and sometimes deal in, pieces by designers including Poul Kjaerholm, Hans Wegner, Arne Jacobsen and Robin Day.

The RetroSixty website stocks paintings, drawings and prints mainly by 20th Century British artists and I also have a few works by continental, American and Australian artists. I established the business in 2006 and this website is focused mainly on affordable work likely to be within the budget of people starting out or upgrading a collection, as I try to keep every item priced competitively at less then £500. The prices always include shipping within mainland Great Britain, with items packed securely to a high standard, using recycled materials wherever possible, and shipped promptly. I do ship further afield and discounted prices to other locations are available on request (please see the contact form on the Hoarde Vintage website adjacent to my listings).

I also have another modern art business,, which is hosted on, the sister website to the Hoarde Vintage. That website shows work for the more experienced collector and / or dealer, or indeed public collections with whom we have worked in the past. My father's business is also to be found on the Decorative Collective.

I provide a condition report on each item with my listings on the Hoarde Vintage. The authenticity of each piece is guaranteed and a detailed receipt is issued on sale. If viewings of works in person is required, we are in Angmering, West Sussex, and viewings are possible, usually seven days a week, but by appointment only. Also further images of works for sale will be available on request.

I do hope you enjoy the visit to my site/s, and if I can help with anything, no matter how large or small, please feel free to ask. Thank you for looking.
