Rodney Gladwell - 'Sheet of Figures'

This original painting in mixed media (mainly gouache, with some pencil and inks) on paper is signed by the artist in the margin upper left 'Gladwell' and dated (19)64 and it is signed again within the image lower right and dated (19)65. Presumably it was a work in progress overlapping those years in the mid 1960s. It has been housed in a clipboard 'frame' under plexiglass and has fixings to the back of the board allowing the work to be displayed 'as is'. The condition of the painting is generally good for its age. The paper sheet is complete and has no tears to it.

About 22.2 x 27.2 inches paper size; clipboard size 23.6 x 31.6 inches

The price is inclusive of delivery to Great Britain mainland. Please enquire of us for shipping costs to other destinations.

Rodney Gladwell (1928-1979) was a well-known painter who came to prominence in the late 1950s and the 1960s. He was born at Didcot in Oxfordshire and studied art at Atelier Colarossi in Paris 1949-50. In 1958 he represented Great Britain in the important Hamburg Exhibition in Germany. He also exhibited at a number of London galleries including Archer Gallery, O’Hana Gallery, Piccadilly Gallery, Molton Gallery, in Paris, and later in life in Zurich. During the 1960s he was commissioned to paint extensive murals for Sussex University and for the Georgian Club in London. A retrospective exhibition was held at the University of Sussex 1962-63. Later in life he made extensive journeys to work in Japan, Africa, and in North and South America. His work is represented in a number of public collections including The Arts Council Collection; Ben Uri Gallery & Museum; Towner Art Gallery, Eastbourne; University of Sussex; and the University of Johannesburg. In 2016 a book was published by Hatje Cantz Publishing with text by Jens Neubert on Gladwell’s life and work titled: Rodney Gladwell: Gods Go Running: (1928-1979).

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.
