Russell Reeve, RBA, RE 'Caparica, Portugal'

An original etching with aquatint, pencil signed by the artist lower right, titled 'Caparica, Portugal' lower left, numbered 7 from an edition of 50 etchings only, and with a dedication to two friends of the artist. Caparica is situated to the south of Lisbon, between the capital and Setubal. Although not dated we have had previously had similar Portuguese etchings by Reeve dated 1960. This work is likely to be from around that date. The etching is in good condition although not examined out of the frame, which appears to be the original. There are several sailors depicted in this image and they appear to us to be wearing the uniforms of Royal Navy personnel. We have other works available by this artist, please enquire or see our website.

About 10.8 x 14.8 inches plate size and about 18.9 x 22.9 inches framed size

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

Russell Sidney Reeve, RBA, RE (1895-1970) was a well known painter and printmaker, born at Hethersett in Norfolk. Reeve studied at the Slade School under Tonks and Steer and at the Royal College of Art. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1927, the New English Art Club from 1921, Royal Society of British Artists, London Group, etc, and his work is represented in many public collections, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Tate Gallery, UCL Art Museum, Bruce Castle Museum Haringey, and Colchester & Ipswich Museums Service. He worked extensively in East Anglia, and also in Europe, often in Spain and Portugal.

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, www.nickwatersart.co.uk, which is hosted on www.decorativecollective.com, 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 www.grantwatersfineart.co.uk 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.
