Joan Baker — Auction

When: 3.30pm 28th September 2019

Reserve price £100. All proceeds to Insole Court Trust

A collection of her oil paintings have been generously bequeathed to Insole Court in order to fund raise for the gardens.

From an early age Joan Baker knew she wanted to be ‘a painter who gardened or a gardener who painted’. Her quiet, reflective work gives us an insight into her personal connection with the landscape.

Through her creative routine and habitual interpretation of the landscapes and coastline of south Wales she produced a substantial body of work over a seventy year career.

‘I always choose to work from direct experience and personal observation trying to realise the ground beneath my feet and the sky above my head and all that happens in between; this I find absorbs me entirely.’

Auctioneer – Dan Clayton-Jones, Chair of Insole Court Trust.

Reserve price £100. All proceeds to Insole Court Trust

Paintings can be taken on the day.
