Eric James Mellon (1925-2014)
Portrait of a young girl wearing a hat
Oil on canvas, 75cm by 62.5cm

See Illustration

Born in Watford, Herefordshire, Mellon attended Watford Technical and Art Institute for a career in the printing industry.

Mellon was one of the finest British studio potters of the 20th Century, noted for his figurative work with stoneware. He was the product of skills-oriented training offered by British Art schools until the early 1960's, the result of this was that he became a versatile and accomplished painter, printmaker and ceramicist.

In all disciplines he demonstrated a fascination with the human form, life drawing was central to his learning, his drawings often taking on a mythological dimension. Two of the paintings offered in this catalogue are from a series of paintings known as the hat paintings, the unnamed sitter was a milliner, who frequently sat for Mellon wearing different hats she had created.

Austin Wright studied Modern Languages at New College, Oxford and trained to become a teacher. His first teaching post was at The Downs School near Malvern in 1934 where he worked alongside W. H Auden and Maurice Feild who held a Dada School exhibition whilst Wright was at the school. In 1937 Wright moved to York and taught languages at Bootham School. His figurative work was influenced by Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. As a conscientious objector Wright remained in Yorkshire during the Second World War, continuing to teach at Bootham. His work was admired by Charles Sewter who commented "It would not be outrageous, far from it, to claim that Austin Wright is the most gifted sculptor working in Britain today." Austin Wright exhibited at Cork Street, London, was invited by the British Council to show in "Younger British Sculptors" an exhibition that toured Sweden in 1956, and took part in the LCC Holland Park Sculpture exhibition in 1957 amongst others. Wright died in York 22 February 1997.
