T

he mantle of “talented amateur” is often used to describe artists who for whatever reason have not made selling their paintings their only means of financial survival. Our June exhibition is a fascinating example of such an artist. Lord Pearce of Sweethaws was a distinguished Law Lord, Lord Justice of Appeals and a privy councillor, whose talent as an artist was recognised from an early age but is only now being shown to a wider audience. Pearce, a Law Lord, painter and collector was the son -in -law of the celebrated artist Bertram Priestman and friend and travelling companion of Edward Seago (1910 -1974). Their frequent trips as the painting trio, travelling in Seago’s Austin Seven, were a period of great productivity for the young Pearce and inspired him in the true tradition of ‘en plein air’ painting. Their days followed a very similar pattern – picnicking on the salt marshes, painting one picture before lunch and then a second in the afternoon.

Front cover: High Summer, Sweethaws, Sussex, 10 x 14 inches (Page 34) Back cover: On the Alde 81, Suffolk Signed. Inscribed with title verso 10 x 14 inches (Page 12)

The freshness and ease in which Pearce observes his subject and lays down his paint in such a spontaneous and confident manner is reflected in all his work. He is never daunted in his quest to capture the perfect land or seascape. His constant observation of the effects of light and the relationship of clouds, sea and snow in his composition are a continuing theme throughout his life. It is fitting that this exhibition coincides with the centenary of the birth of Edward Seago and will I am sure establish Pearce as an artistic name in his own right, elevating him above the rank of “talented amateur”.
