Description:
Sir Herbert James Gunn, R.A. (1893-1964) The Mall, looking towards Admiralty Arch, London signed 'H.G. Gunn' (lower left) oil on canvas 18 x 24 in. (45.7 x 61 cm.) George Balfour, and by descent to the present owner. After studying at Glasgow and Edinburgh Schools of Art, divided, like his near contemporary Sir Alfred Munnings, by time as a commercial artist, Gunn enrolled at the Academy Julien in Paris in 1911. It was here that he honed his skills at creating elegant and tonally-balanced cityscapes, often painted on small boards. Parallels can be drawn with the still-lives and downland landscapes of William Nicholson, whose associate James Pryde, Gunn painted to great acclaim in 1924, establishing him as a portrait painter of high regard. Admiralty Arch from Pall Mall most probably dates from 1925 when the artist first took a permanent home in London and was still signing his pictures 'H J Gunn'. It comes from the collection of George Balfour (1872-1941), an important early patron of Gunn, whose portrait he painted in 1930. Balfour, with his business partner Andrew Beatty founded the eponymous multi-national construction company Balfour Beatty. Like Gunn, Balfour hailed from Scotland, but in 1918 became M.P. for Hampstead and remained so until his death in 1941.

HERBERT JAMES GUNN, (1893 - 1964, British), RECLINING NUDE, oil on canvas on board SIGNED: signed upper left: H James Gunn DIMENSIONS: 34.0 x 44.5 cm PROVENANCE: Paisnel Gallery, London Private collection, Tasmania ESSAY: Herbert Gunn was born in Glasgow in 1893 and studied at the Glasgow School of Art followed by the Edinburgh College of Art. After his studies in Edinburgh he enrolled at the Academie Julian under Jean-Paul Laurens in Paris from 1911 – 1914. He left Paris at the outbreak of war, received a commission in the 10th Scottish Rifles and saw active service in France. Following the war, in England he established himself as a leading painter of landscapes and portraits, exhibiting at the Royal Academy from 1923 as well as the Fine Art Society and the Royal Scottish Academy. From 1926 he decided to devote himself entirely to portraiture. This more intimate nude subject from the 1930s, most likely depicts his second wife Pauline, with pale skin starkly rendered in crisp clear outline against the expanse of an embroidered red fabric. By 1953 Gunn’’’’s reputation as a leading portrait painter was confirmed with the commission to paint the official Coronation portrait of Queen Elizabeth II (Royal Collection Trust, Windsor Castle) Gunn was knighted in 1963 for his services to the arts. The retrospective exhibition Sir James Gunn: 1893-1964 was held at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh, 3 December 1994 – 26 February 1995.
