The Lost Paintings of Carl Lawson
We are delighted to announce that gallery prints of a selection of the paintings by the previously undiscovered artist, Carl Lawson, a former student of Auerbach's at Camberwell in the 1960s, are now available to view and order exclusively through the [mine] gallery.
A truly unique story surrounds the discovery of a hoard of paintings by Carl Lawson, a reclusive and previously unknown painter from Sutton, who studied at Camberwell School of Art in the 1960's under such luminaries as Frank Auerbach, Leon Kossoff, Adrian Heath, Euan Uglow, Patrick Procktor and Ron Kitaj. The generally large, experimental and dynamic paintings appear to have been produced over a period of about 30 years and were discovered, boarded up in the family home in Beddington in Sutton, which Carl abandoned in the 1980s to go and live in a commune in north London. In addition to the influence of his tutors at Camberwell, Carl's paintings also show a keen interest in the work and ideas of David Bomberg, members of the Borough Group and Borough Botegga as well as the early American Modernist artist John Marin and Abstract Expressionist artists Willem De Kooning, Hans Hofmann and Philip Guston.
