The beauty of wild flowers and still life. (10 )

Albert Durer Lucas-son of sculptor Richard Cockle-Lucas.

Thanks to the Chipperfield Bequest Southampton’s Art Gallery has  10 of ‘ADL’s’ beautiful paintings. Sadly, they have been on loan to private firms since 1997.  They are leased at over 100 pounds  a year each + VAT.     The income untill the end of 2009 was 10.000 pounds. The public of our City have not been able to view the paintings. A suggestion has been made that prints of the paintings be produced for an exhibition in the Art Gallery to enable the public to appreciate ‘ADL’s’ work.  Less costly than withdrawing those on loan.
