Katey Goodwin, Head of Research and Digitisation, Public Catalogue Foundation
The Public Catalogue Foundation is delighted to have had a small role in Wendy and Malcolm`s painstaking research, helping them to locate paintings in public collections across the UK.
Bringing together artworks now held in both private and public collections, Wendy Loncaster and Malcolm Shields have reunited Fred Elwell`s wonderful paintings within the pages of their beautifully illustrated book. Elwell`s subjects include both portraits and landscapes, but his studies of people at work and play are particularly interesting, capturing moments in time - maids working in the kitchen of an inn, circus performers poised at the entrance of a Big Top, friends taking tea together, we are glimpsing a lost hidden world.
