Ithell Colquhoun Mid-century "Rubber Plant" Gouache Painting 1953

£600.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Ithell Colquhoun (1906-1988) Mid-century "Rubber Plant" Gouache Painting 1953. Image approx 15cm x 29cm, frame approx 36cm x 53cm. Nice raw silk matte. Gilt frame has some dings and sticker residue. Similar still life recently sold at auction for £850.

Born in India, Colquhoun studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, before taking a studio in Paris and developing her interest in Surrealism. She shared an exhibition with Roland Penrose at the Mayor Gallery in 1939, and eventually met the Surrealist leader, André Breton. Colquhoun broke with Surrealism in 1940, but retained her interest in automatism, which she combined with a deepened interest in the occult. She exhibited with the London Group and at the Leicester Galleries.

Oxfam Shop Hampstead

Situated in a prime position in Hampstead Village, Oxfam Hampstead has been on this site since 1991. It was recently refurbished and we have around 30 volunteers but are always looking for new people, especially those who have experience in running an online shop. We are also looking for people who wish to gain retail experience and help sort our donations.


We stock a wide range of Fairtrade ecologically sourced and eco-friendly products, as well as a fantastic variety of donated goods, including an excellent women's clothing section with many designer labels. In the homeware section you can always find that special thing you are looking for. Not to forget the popular children's section where we have a wide selection of toys and children's clothes. Our unique selections of bespoke art works and jewellery are some of the best throughout Oxfam.


Once visited one is compelled to return time and again - in fact many of our regular customers visit every day in case they miss something!


Good quality donations including women's clothing, accessories, men's clothing, homewares, children's clothes, toys, jewellery, music and art work are all very welcome.


The shop is able to offer Gift Aid on donations and operates the 'tag a bag' scheme.
