Introduction My new exhibition ‘An Artist’s Odyssey’ is the result of two years’ work and, as the title suggests, long eventful journeys to Switzerland, India, Crete, Santorini and Italy, not to mention London and Coastal England. The past two years have also seen the recording of another eventful journey in the form of Light and Dark, an autobiography to be published and launched to coincide with the opening of this, my eighth exhibition with the Richard Green Gallery. I chose the title for the book because both my work and my life have contained light and dark. Finally, a high point for me during these two years was the award in 2010 of an OBE for service to art in the Queen’s Birthday Honours. This gave me great pleasure.

Professor Ken Howard OBE RA

Switzerland This was my ďŹ rst working trip to Switzerland and the idea was to follow in the footsteps of Turner’s trips of the 1840s. The mountains and lakes were awe-inspiring, so much so that I am already preparing another working visit.

Italy The words of George Sand, Histoire de ma vie, sum up my feelings for Venice: ‘Venice was truly the city of my dreams, yet everything I had imagined was still less than how it appeared to me, morning and evening. Whether in calm of fine days or by the gloomy reflections of storm clouds, I loved this city for itself and it is the only one in the world I could so love.’

India This was my third working trip to India which I made in November 2009. I had expected everything to have changed after a gap of ďŹ fteen years, but apart from the big modern cities, India was as fascinating and unique as ever, and full of light and colour.

Coastal England I have worked in Cornwall for ďŹ fty years.

REPRESENTATION OF SELLER Seller confirms that, to the best of its knowledge and belief, it has authority to sell the Work. Buyer agrees that all liability of Seller and all rights of Buyer against Seller in relation to the Work howsoever arising and of whatever nature shall cease after the expiry of five years from Delivery. This paragraph does not prejudice Buyer’s statutory rights. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, Seller shall not be liable to Buyer for any loss of profits, loss of revenue, goodwill or for any indirect or consequential loss arising out of or in connection with this Agreement, whenever the same may arise, and Seller’s total and cumulative liability for losses whether for breach of contract, tort or otherwise and including liability for negligence (except in relation to (i) death or personal injury caused by Seller’s negligence or (ii) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation by Seller) shall in no event exceed the Price. All representations made by Seller as to the authenticity, attribution, description, date, age, provenance, title or condition of the Work constitute the Seller’s opinion only and are not warranted by Seller. Seller accepts no liability as a result of any changes in expert opinion or scholarship which may take place subsequent to entry into this Agreement. COPYRIGHT All copyright in material relating to the Work vesting in Seller shall remain Seller’s. Seller reserves the right to exploit all such copyright. EXPORT AND LOCAL TAXES Where the Work is to be exported from the UK by Buyer, this Agreement is conditional on the granting of any requisite export licence or permission, which the parties shall use reasonable endeavours to obtain. Where the Work is, or is to be exported from the European Union and VAT has not been charged because, by reason of such intended export, the Work is zero rated or not subject to VAT, both parties shall take all necessary steps to ensure that there is compliance with the time limits and formalities laid down by HM Revenue & Customs and that such documentation as is required, including any necessary proofs of export and Bills of Lading are fully and properly completed. Buyer shall indemnify Seller against any claims made against Seller for VAT or any other expenses or penalties imposed by reason of Buyer’s failure to observe and comply with the formalities referred to herein. Unless otherwise stated on the Invoice, Buyer shall be responsible for all Local Taxes. GENERAL Buyer shall not be entitled to the benefit of any set-off and sums pay able to Seller shall be paid without any deduction whatsoever. In the event of non-payment Seller shall be entitled to obtain and enforce judgement without determination of any cross claim by Buyer.

Both parties agree that in entering into the Agreement neither party relies on, nor has any remedy in respect of, any statement, representation or warranty, negligently or innocently made to any person (whether party to this Agreement or not) other than as set out in the Agreement as a warranty. The only remedy for breach of any warranty shall be for breach of contract under the Agreement. Nothing in the Agreement shall operate to limit or exclude any liability for fraud. The benefit of the Agreement and the rights thereunder shall not be assignable by Buyer. Seller may sub-contract its obligations. Any notice in connection with the Agreement shall be in writing and shall be delivered by hand or by post to Seller’s registered office at the time of posting or to Buyer to the Invoice Address, and shall be deemed delivered on delivery if by hand or on the third day after posting if posted. In the case of a consumer contract within the meaning of the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977, these conditions shall not apply to the extent that they would be rendered void or unenforceable by virtue of the provisions thereof. No amendment, modification, waiver of or variation to the Invoice or the Agreement shall be binding unless agreed in writing and signed by an authorised representative of Buyer and Seller. Neither Seller nor Buyer intends the terms of the Agreement to be enforceable by a third party pursuant to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999. The Agreement and all rights and obligations of Seller and Buyer under it shall be governed by English Law in every particular and, subject always to the prior application of the arbitration provisions set out in clause 9, both parties agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts. ARBITRATION All claims and disputes relating to, or in connection with, the Agreement are to be referred to a single arbitrator in London pursuant to the Arbitration Act 1996. In the event that the parties cannot agree upon an arbitrator either party may apply to the President of the Law Society of England and Wales for the time being to appoint as arbitrator a Queen’s Counsel of not less than 5 years standing. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding. Save that Buyer acknowledges Seller’s right to seek, and the power of the High Court to grant interim relief, no action shall be brought in relation to any claim or dispute until the arbitrator has conducted an arbitration and made his award.
