John Pawle

John Pawle, a British artist born in 1915, studied at the Westminster School of Art before the outbreak of the Great War. After spending his life first as a cricketer, then as a naval captain, and later as a stockbroker, he reconnected with his artistic inclination only later in life, after retiring in 1979.

His late beginnings did not prevent him to find commercial success, achieving good sales in over twenty exhibitions and one-man shows in London.

The painting offered in our Fine Sale comes from one of these exhibitions, held at the Portland Gallery in 2006 – four years prior to the artist’s death - and represents a summertime seascape in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat (Cote d’Azur), seen from an open window, which is a typical composition in Pawle’s production, characterised by warm colours and serene settings.

5/9/2021 – Lot 183 - John Pawle (British 1915-2010) 'St. Jean Cap Ferrat'. Oil on board, signed lower left, exhibited at the Portland Gallery in 2006, 91cm x 107cm, framed.
