This painting of Sue Strumming away is quite an eye catching piece and comes to life as a result of the vibrant use of colour. It is an interesting painting to say the least. It appears to have been painted on thick paper. It is inscribed to the verso ‘My friend Sue.’ The number 72 is written beside the inscription which is the date of the painting, no doubt. There are large areas of craquelure particulry to the blue sky and Sue’s white top. There are numerous waves in the paper. The frame has several scuff marks also.

DIMENSIONS: H:90cm(35.43in) W:67cm(26.37) D:2cm(0.78cm)

BACKGROUND:

The artist Tich Herald was interviewed by writer Dominic Joyeux whose caption on You Tube reads:

“Tich was a Bedford artist whose life burnt bright for a short while. I can’t confirm this but am pretty sure he passed away in the 1990s. We filmed him in 1988 in two parts. The first was filmed while he and his team were packing away an exhibition he had staged at Bedford School – hence the noise is off. Then the second part was shot in his studio flat in St Mary’s Street near the Embankment. Perhaps unusually for an artist, Tich sold a considerable number of paintings – over a hundred before this was filmed when he had turned 30. As there is very little about him online here’s a mini-retrospective of his work”

It is clear from watching his interview and reading the online comments from his friends how tormented he was and yet he makes reference to pricing some paintings at five thousand pounds. In addition, having sold over 100 hundred paintings before he turned 30, one wonders what accolades would have been bestowed upon him today.

Welcome to The Tractor Shed.

Having left my profession as a lawyer, I had the opportunity to turn my attention to my real passion: buying and selling antiques of all eras.

I quickly found that the best way forward was to buy what I like; items that make my heart flutter on seeing them for the first time and that I would like to have in my own home. I hope you feel exactly the same way when you look through my collection.

The name 'The Tractor Shed' came about after doing some research into the origins of my family home. We discovered that it was converted from the offices of a business where tractors were restored and sold in the 1960s and 1970s, keeping them going for decades. With this ethos of preserving things rather then pursuing the often-throwaway attitude we so often now see, I started my small business dealing in beautiful items that deserve to be with us for years to come.

Opening hours: Mon - Sat 10am to 6pm. I'm very happy to take calls at any reasonable times outside of these hours, esepcially for those clients where there is a time difference. Please don't hesitate to contact me as I would be delighted to assist to you.
