Jeremy Barlow and his Contemporary Landscapes 

Les Deux Garçons features in my current header painting. The painting has special memories of our time in Provence eating in this very fine restaurant in Aix. But also of meeting the artist at an exhibition at Broadway. He was also a regular exhibitor at The Llewelyn Alexander Gallery in London. 

Jeremy Barlow was a delightful man and a very fine painter of landscapes, absolutely capturing the feel of the scene. Look at the wonderful dappled images on the yellow walls. You can feel the relief of the cool shade in the blistering heat. Unfortunately we could only acquire a print of this painting so some lucky person out there has the original.

Barlow was based in Holt in North Norfolk so we looked out his gallery on our recent visit. We were saddened to hear of his death a few months ago . Such a loss. There is an awful lot of contemporary selling art around these days which does not reach the public galleries, and some of it very technically competent. I believe Jeremy Barlow’s work to be near the top of this genre for its originality and emotion as well as its technical prowess. 

It is a pleasure having this print on our walls.
