We're putting the finishing touches to our new stock catalogue here at Philip Mould (which is just one of the reasons AHN has been shamefully thin lately - apologies). The catalogue will have some of our finest new pictures, so if you want to have a copy, please let me know! 

I like writing stock catalogues. It's fun trying to pull together wider art historical threads from a necessarily random collection of stock. So in this case, we cover four centuries, from Titian to Augustus John, via Van Dyck, Gainsborough, and even the miniaturist John Hoskins. But it's still possible to weave a narrative from one end of the artistic spectrum to the other. For example, Augustus John at his best has a certain Van Dyckian quality to him, while Gainsborough was as obsessed with Van Dyck as Van Dyck was as obsessed with Titian. And since I'm obsessed with Van Dyck, we've managed to squeeze in no less than three Van Dycks, and one studio of Van Dyck.
