Collector's Choice


I love Craigie Aitchison's vibrant colours, even when his subjects, like this lone Tree, feel a little melancholic. Coloured Flowers Made of Paper and Ink is a classic Hockney. I've always enjoyed the way he depicts flowers, and Untitled (Tennis Court) is one that I hadn't seen before. I love the sun-soaked warmth of this. Cy Twombly's portfolio, Some Trees of Italy, is dreamy and elegant, and a bright pink Warhol of our beloved Queen Elizabeth II? Too fab!

Then we have some fantastic colour from Howard Hodgkin (one of my favourite artists) with David's Pool - soothing and uplifting. I'm intrigued by the look of Graham Sutherland's mysterious Wood Interior, half shrouded in darkness, and one can't go wrong with a Matisse portrait - I love the graphic simplicity of TĂȘte de femme de face.

Vaughan's bold mark-making is beautiful in Winter Landscape and I like the striking colour palette. This, followed by the beautiful painterly movement of Richard Smith's Untitled 10. I'm a huge Procktor fan, and Cataract, Aswan makes me a dream of the trip to Egypt that I'm yet to take... I can almost feel the intense heat.
