Chris Collingwood

Chris has produced a wealth of impressive paintings from the Napoleonic War, American Civil War, English Civil War, and a variety of Portraits of Great Military Leaders, He also has produced superb paintings of Pirates, a particular favourite of his. Chris studied at Berkshire College of Art 1966 - 1970 and then worked for Halas and Batchelor as a background artist. In the golden age of book cover illustration Chris made the Gunslinger, Crow and Herne series his own. To this day the shelves of high street booksellers are full of his work. Perhaps his best known popular pieces are in the now famous Jorvik Centres paintings which form the focus of the exhibitions promotion and won a travel industry award. In recent years his best work has been paintings, such as SPQR, Anne Bonny, Mary Reid and Calico Jack Rakam and Blackbeard in Damnation Seize My Soul. His super realistic style, using oils, brilliantly reflects the techniques, passion and depth of the old masters. He has a particular love of portraiture, which his portraits of Wellington and William of Orange certainly reflect, along with others from the English Civil War, his love of the subject. He is also fascinated by the awful romance of weaponry and war. Chris uses traditional Dutch paints made today, as in 1664, and is meticulous in his research and attention to detail, so scarce in our modern throw away society. Sir Anthony Van Dyke, William Dobson, Sir Peter Lely and Fortunio Matania played a vital part in his formative years. He also is much influenced by Meissonier and De Neuville.

Published in 1989 by Pompadour Gallery long since out of business, we have managed to acquire a small number of these superb prints which are hard to find.  This rare print has under the title of the print the poem : <br><br>I'm lonesome since I crossed the Hill,<br>And o'er the moor and valley<br>Such heavy thoughts my heart do fill,<br>Since parting with my Sally.<br>I seek no more the fine or gay,<br>For each does but remind me<br>How Swiftly pass'd the hours away<br>With the girl I left behind me.<br>Oh. ne'er shall I forget the night,<br>The stars were bright above me,<br>And gently lent their silv'ry light,<br>When first she vow'd to love me.<br>but now I'm, bound for Brighton camp,<br>kind heaven, then pray, guide me,<br>And send me safely back again<br>To the girl I left behind me.
