Description:
•EDWARD SEAGO, RWS (1910-1974) PICCADILLY BY THE RITZ, JUNE 1953 Signed, oil on canvas 49.5 x 65cm. Provenance: Private collection, Somerset * Seago was appointed to be one of the official artists for the Coronation on June 2nd 1953, following a distinguished association with the Royal family, which continued up to his death. This subject was painted during the artist's visit to London for that event. HM The Queen later selected one of Seago's works as the most successful depiction of the Coronation procession. The artist was not just a regular visitor to Sandringham but also made a gift of a picture to Queen Elizabeth upon her birthday and again at Christmas for over 25 years. With a keen eye for light combined with a fluent technique of great panache, he captured skilfully the sense of liveliness in a subject such as this through the use of attenuated figures and mere hints of form which suggest fleeting movement. ++ Slight craquelure within the tree upper centre; 1cm faint graze below vehicle on extreme left; needs a light clean

Pre-Lot Text Edward Seago: An Important Private Collection (Lots 123-129) This superb collection of works by Edward Seago includes some of the artist's most celebrated subjects, and is one of the finest groups from a single-owner collection to be offered at Christie\’s. They are a microcosm of the richness and diversity of the themes which run through his work, from his early gypsy pictures to his Antarctic travels with the Royal Family. They also reflect his subtlety and nuanced eye for capturing light and atmosphere. Seago was born in East Anglia in 1910 and his precocious talent and ambition to be a painter was apparent from an early age. He was tutored by the Royal Academician and landscape painter Bertram Priestman to whom he had written in 1923, at the age of thirteen. He was also inspired by his East Anglian artistic predecessors, in particular works by the Norwich School and John Constable, and their celebration of the English landscape. By his late teens Seago\’s attention had turned to the celebrated equestrian painter and future President of The Royal Academy, Sir Alfred Munnings, whose extensive exhibition at Norwich Castle in 1928 exposed the young Seago to over 250 works by the artist. The following year, with the assistance of an early patron, Seago held his first one man exhibition at the Arlington Gallery on New Bond Street, London, and sold 23 of 37 works on the first day. It brought critical as well as commercial success and The Times correspondent noted Seago's 'natural instincts as a painter\’. Like his mentor Sir Alfred Munnings, and also Dame Laura Knight and Augustus John, gypsy and circus life captivated Seago. He spent time travelling with Bertram Mills' circus which he immortalised in pictures and in his book, Circus Company. It was written with the guidance of the Poet Laureate, John Masefield, and its success led to a further collaboration, The Country Scene, a celebration of rural life, with pictures by Seago and verse by Masefield. Pictures of the ballet in Paris and equestrian portraits in North America soon followed, but he quickly returned to East Anglia and his depictions of landscape and sky. A commission to paint a portrait of Queen Mary led to lifelong friendships with three generations of the Royal Family, including commissions to painted Queen Elizabeth\’s coronation in 1953, and an Antarctic expedition with the Duke of Edinburgh onboard H.M.Y. Britannia. His travels didn\’t stop in Antarctica, however, and Venice, the Mediterranean and Hong Kong became regular subjects. From his yacht the Capricorn, moored in the Norfolk broads, he would sail across the English Channel, painting in Holland, the coast of Brittany and finally mooring on the Seine in Paris. His annual exhibitions at Colnaghi\’s on Bond Street, from 1945 to 1967, and then at Marlborough Fine Art from 1968 to 1974 were incredibly popular and queues would form on opening day with prospective buyers being issued with a ticket to purchase one picture per person. He also exhibited widely around the globe, from Toronto to Zurich and Tokyo. His acclaim has remained constant and he is rightly considered one of Britain\’s most popular 20th Century British artists.
