Stubbs discovery on sale at BADA 2017
A Stubbs painting that was mistakenly believed to be a copy is on sale by The Parker Gallery at BADA 2017.

Entitled Two Hacks, the property of Henry Ulrick Reay Esq of Burn Hall Co. Durham and their blue-liveried groom in a landscape, the painting’s authenticity was uncovered earlier this year by The Parker Gallery. The work had gone on sale in New York having been deaccessioned by The Huntington Library in California, who had incorrectly catalogued the oil painting as a copy after Stubbs.

The painting is signed in the lower right hand corner and is dated 1789. The date puts it a year ahead of another version by the artist in a private collection. The primacy of The Parker Gallery’s Stubbs is shown by the presence of pentimenti - notably the nearside hind leg of the leading horse, the position of which has been altered by the artist by about 1cm to the right. The original position is visible in outline under the painting of the grass.

Joseph Walsh sculpture takes centre stage at BADA2017
BADA is delighted to announce that ‘Lilium 1’ by Irish designer maker Joseph Walsh will form the centrepiece of this year’s foyer design. Specially commissioned by BADA 2017 exhibitor Peter Petrou, the unique sculptural form is fashioned in olive ash and finished with white oil.

In the Lilium series, Joseph Walsh expands on the formation and layering language of his Enignum series and once again refers to natural elements that inspire his work. Lilium explores the relationship between the geometric and the organic; while some of the pieces' elements keep to symmetrical repetitions, others erupt into glorious, abstract shape.

The finished pieces blur the line between still and living objects, while capturing the natural instincts for growth in the material, the maker and the viewer. They mimic nature’s patterns, beginning with a cohesive bulb / form and growing according to diverse set of circumstances.

Isaac and Ede bring Georgian Print Room to BADA
For BADA 2017 Isaac and Ede will be revelling in Eighteenth Century London life and presenting A Georgian Print Room.  There will be monarchs and merchants, heroes and villains, courtesans and cute dogs. 

The room will rejoice in every aspect of Georgian London with bawdy scenes from the stage at Drury Lane, dramatic depictions of epic battles out at sea and intimate studies of domestic life. 

Society beauties will rub shoulders with criminals and Napoleon will be forced to look Wellington in the eye. During the reign of George III London acquired the status of the world's most fashionable city; come and meet the movers and shakers who made this happen.
