Object History

This item was from the late estate of Richard Beer (1928 – 2017). Richard Beer was both a painter and a printmaker. His images were mostly architectural or landscape, and he was inspired in particular by Italian and French subjects, displaying a distinctive eye for detail on the buildings he captured and a talent for evoking the atmosphere of the scene. He studied at the Slade School of Art (1945-50) subsequently moving to Paris on a French Government Scholarship where he studied at the world-famous atelier 17 under Stanley William Hayter, where he no doubt honed his fine skills on the medium of etching. He went to study at the Ecole des Beaux Arts. He travelled widely throughout Italy, France, Spain and Morocco, prolifically sketching and painting the rural and architectural landscapes that inspired him. He held many one man shows and was a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy. He was teacher of printmaking at Chelsea School of Art and a founder member of the Printmakers Council. His work is held in many collections including the Tate, Victoria and Albert Museum and the Government Art Collection.

Object Condition

This stool is in excellent condition. It has been newly upholstered in top quality full grain green leather, incorporating a traditional horsehair filling with a hessian underside. The seat itself is firm, yet very comfortable to sit on or rest your feet. The upholstery is therefore new, clean and free from any wear, dirt or damage. The carvings are in excellent condition, with no missing pieces. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges of the rosewood frame, but nothing significant considering the age of the item. This item is solid in joint and ready to use.
