William Henry Allen was one of a group of British art teachers recruited in the 1920s by William Sanderson La Trobe, the nation's Superintendent of Technical Education, whose intention it was to greatly improve the quality of art education in New Zealand. W H Allen had attended London's Royal College of Art from 1919 to 1923. His contemporaries there included Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth; fellow students Roland Hopkins and R N Field also immigrated to New Zealand. The contribution of the La Trobe artists, particularly W H Allen and R N Field had an on-going and profound effect on the development of New Zealand art. Their teaching of early modernism opened the door to an avant-garde post-impressionist period in New Zealand's art history. They influenced artists such as Toss Woollaston, Colin McCahon and Doris Lusk who embraced these new ideas, attitudes and techniques. Hocken Librarian Sharon Dell says the influence of W H Allen and his fellow La Trobe teachers produced works in a style that was at first unacceptable to painters in New Zealand - still entrenched in their Victorian style of art. W H Allen taught in Dunedin and Nelson. He was President of the Suter Art Gallery Society, teaching Workers Education Association classes and participating in the Canterbury Summer Schools which attracted artists Doris Lusk.

and Leo Bensemann to Nelson. Colin McCahon and Toss Woollaston also regularly spent their summers there. After returning to England in the late 1930s, W H Allen's art and reputation as a teacher were all but lost and until recently, little research done on his contribution to New Zealand art. Following the family's return to England in 1946 W H Allen taught at the South West Essex School of Art, London, retiring in 1961. In 2008 a significant collection of W H Allen's work was repatriated from the United Kingdom and gifted to Dunedin's Hocken Library. The Tui Rata Frowd bequest contained about 80 artworks including oil paintings and works on paper, and a large archival collection of letters, correspondence, photographs, catalogues and articles relating to William Allen. In 2015 the Hocken Library held a major exhibition, W H Allen & The La Trobe Effect. This exhibition shone a light on W H Allen's contribution to the emergence of early regionalism in New Zealand. In addition to showcasing W H Allen's practice the show included works by his La Trobe peers, several of Allen's students and a sample of work by the early twentieth century British artists associated with the Camden Town Group whose post-impressionist style and subject matter inspired W H Allen, his peers and a swathe of this country's regionalist painters.

Felix Kelly is one of New Zealand’s most interesting expatriate artists. Born in Epsom in 1914 he claimed to be two years younger most of his adult life. Kelly studied briefly and taught drafting at Elam School of Fine Art. He was only 21 when he left New Zealand in 1935. He never returned. In London Kelly continued his New Zealand occupation of graphic design, working for Lintas, the advertising wing of Unilevers. He also freelanced as an illustrator and cartoonist, especially for Lilliput. His cartoons are not unlike those of the slightly younger Ronald Searle. After the war and the RAF, the focus of his graphic art shifted to book illustration, dust-jacket design and contributions on interior decoration to such fashion magazines as Ideal Home and Harper’s Bazaar. In the 1950s and 60s he was acknowledged as one of England’s top designers for the theatre, working with the likes of Sir John Gielgud and Dame Sybil Thorndike. Kelly’s ambition had always been to succeed as a painter. Emerging in the context of Surrealism and British Neo-Romanticism, he exhibited alongside important British artists such as Lucian Freud, John Piper and Frances Hodgkins, attracting the attention of the prominent critic, Herbert Read. Kelly’s paintings are characterised by his interest in a world forgotten by progress, great houses falling into dilapidation, wind-blasted trees, abandoned locomotives often

invested with an eerie watchfulness. Rapidly, Kelly assembled a client list resembling a page from Who’s Who. In late career, his knowledge of architecture led to involvement in house design, most notably his collaboration on the redesign of Highgrove for the Prince of Wales. His most celebrated project was, however, the mural cycle at Castle Howard associated with the filming of Brideshead Revisited in the 1980s. Kelly travelled a great deal. Paintings of Spain and Italy in the 1940s were followed by West African scenes in the 50s and ante-bellum houses in America’s Deep South in the 60s and 70s. Trips to Russia, Thailand, India and Egypt in the 70s and 80s each led to an exhibition of exotic paintings. In late career, Kelly would execute a small sketch characterised by loose brush-work, which would then be converted into a carefully executed big-scale painting. Both types of work appear for sale from time to time. Kelly completed paintings of Auckland subjects done decades after he had left home. Auckland’s West Coast beaches or Takapuna with Rangitoto beyond, or paddle-steamers on the Waitemata, were evoked with an increasing degree of fantasy well into the 1960s. A quirky humour pervades his work. Donald Bassett’s book Fix; The Art and Life of Felix Kelly, was published in 2008, followed by a second edition in 2013.

NIGEL BROWN Gray Sea I AM Oil on board 149 x 89 Signed, inscribed & dated 2001 $12,000 - 18,000

This is a late work in the I AM series of paintings. It was completed in the same year that the the artist left Auckland to settle in Cosy Nook, Southland after a couple of years as absentee owner. Prominent beyond the letters is Shark Tooth Rock and Foveaux Strait with a view to Rakiura. This was the view the artist and his wife lived with from their house in this remote area. The work mixes modernism with pictorialism in a challenging way. Even the individual I AM is bordered with a lace curtain chorus of WE ARE. This work probably suggested the title of the artist’s fourth touring exhibition I AM/WE ARE in which Gray Sea I AM featured.

55 One of the most distinctive geological features on the west coast of the North Island is Mount Taranaki and, since the mid-nineteenth century, the mountain has inspired numerous artists. Doris Lusk appears amongst an impressive list which includes Charles Heaphy, Dorothy Kate Richmond, Christopher Perkins, Michael Smither, Toss Woollaston, Don Driver, sculptor Neil Dawson and photographer Laurence Aberhart. For many the allure and ever changing moods of the sacred mountain remains a powerful touchstone. After studying at the King Edward Technical College in Dunedin, where Doris Lusk was born in 1916, she moved to Christchurch in the early 1940s, began teaching at the School of Fine Arts in the mid-1960s and, today is acknowledged as one of New Zealand’s foremost modernist landscape painters of her generation. Her works are held in all important public collections. During the 1950s, the decade Lusk painted her most well-known image The Pumping Station 1958, she also produced two oils and a watercolour of Mt Taranaki. Her oil Mt Egmont from Opunake was followed four

years later by Botanical Gardens, Hawera, an image of the Hawera observatory, garden hedges and the mountain interwoven into a haunting surreal image. It was exhibited in the 1956 Group Show as Mt Egmont from Opunake, identifying the painting’s location. From Opunake, on the south western side of Mt Taranaki, the distinctive Franthams Peak is clearly visible and recorded in the painting. Consistent with the artist’s life-long interest in built structures and the transformation of landscape through habitation, a railway bridge crossing the Taungatara Stream is centrally placed in the composition. Broadly executed, the rounded, rhythmical landforms in the foreground are lahars, the result of lava flows from an ancient volcanic eruption. Touches of pink amongst the rich ochre foreground are gently reflected in the sky on the left. A line of clouds running horizontally across the sky above the mountain emphasise the expansive, tranquil vista. The painting was formerly owned by the artist Tony Fomison, a student and friend of the artist. Grant Banbury

Five Works by Charles McPhee From an American Collection Charles McPhee 1910 - 2002 was one of the original velvet painters. He studied with the founder of this genre, American Edgar Leeteg 1904 -1954. In the early years after WWII, painting on velvet was cast as a unique new technique enabling the artist to render life forms in a tactile and extremely lifelike way. McPhee enjoyed immense success, he was always one year behind with his portrait schedule of commissioned works. His popularity was such that his exhibitions were always sell outs. McPhee died in Auckland in November 2002 at the age of 92. A documentary titled Velvet Dreams was directed by award winning Samoan director Sima Urale in 1998. The narrator meets velvet artists and collectors in Seattle, Arthur Leeteg's widow in Tahiti, art historians in Auckland and, finally the then 88 year-old velvet painter, adventurer and party boy, Charles McPhee. 146

Single Owner Auctions From time to time, the secondary market is fortunate enough to be exposed to one of those rare collections which transcends the value of its individual works of art, and stands to represent something iconic in its entirety. Our team is well-versed in the process of offering single-owner collections for sale, and take pride in the process of curating a single-owner sale when the opportunity arises. We offer a targeted marketing campaign and maximise the use of both electronic and print-based collateral to effectively showcase such collections to maximum effect. The strong networks we have established locally and internationally are reflected in some of the private collections which have been entrusted to us in recent years.
