Slade school, London view in the manner of Helen Lessore (1907-1994)

  • A view of a London square at dusk, possibly Berkeley Square. Oil on board, circa 1970s and very much in the style of British painter and Art dealer; Helen Lessore.

    An evocative and atmospheric painting that captures a rather smoggy and hazy hour in the city of London. I am listing the piece ‘in the manner of’ Helen Lessore. The painting is unsigned.

    The painting is housed in its original, period frame measuring 50cm x 50cm


    Helen Lessore (1907-1994) was a British painter and art dealer. She studied at The Slade School 1924-8 going on to run the Beaux Arts Gallery with her husband, Frederick Lessore (Sculptor). Christopher Wood and Barbara Hepworth both had early shows there. Helen Lessore helped launch the careers of Frank Auerbach and Leon Kossoff. Her work is held by The Tate and she was elected Senior R.A in 1987. She developed an enduring friendship and gallery representation of Walter Sickert, whose work was almost always seen in her gallery.
