DEXTER BROWN ART IN MOTION EXHIBITION AT BONHAMS IN AID OF COMBAT STRESS

Art in Motion, an exhibition of new paintings by the well known artist Dexter Brown will be on show at the Bonhams international auction house on New Bond Street, London from 16 to 27 February.
All the works are for sale and 50 per cent of the proceeds will go to Combat Stress, the Veterans’ mental health charity, which provides specialist clinical treatment and welfare support to ex-Service men and women across the UK suffering from psychological injuries.
 
Dexter Brown’s work is a favourite with collectors all over the world. He is particularly famous for his paintings of speeding racing cars and for the many portraits of famous actors executed in his years as artist in residence at the Duke of York Theatre in London.
 
For the exhibition at Bonhams, Dexter was given a totally open remit with no set subject or theme.  As the artist explained in a recent interview, “It’s quite something to be given such a free hand.  For some reason I just had this thing again about the cars.  I started to think about films and TV programmes that have cars in, and that made me drift sideways to actors and actresses I’ve always admired.”
 
Peter Fonda is depicted from Easy Rider; Paul Newman and Katherine Ross in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid; Steve McQueen and the Porsche 917 from Le Mans as well as his own Ferrari 275 GTB/4.  Closer to home there is John Thaw as Inspector Morse with his famous burgundy Mark 2 Jaguar and Billie Piper as seen in The Sally Lockhart Mysteries.
 
Bonhams Chairman, Robert Brooks, said, “I have been a great admirer of Dexter Brown’s work for many years and am delighted that we are able to stage this exhibition at Bonhams and raise money for such a worthwhile cause.”
 
Founded 95 years ago Combat Stress is the UK’s leading mental health charity for Veterans. Since its foundation it has supported more than 100,000 ex-Service men and women and is currently providing help for more than 5,600, including 662 Afghanistan Veterans and 960 Iraq Veterans. The youngest Veteran is just 19 years old and the oldest is 97.
 
Combat Stress treats conditions including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression and anxiety.
 
 
The next Bonhams Motoring Department Sale is the Grand Palais Sale, taking place in Paris on Thursday 5 February. CLICK HERE for further information.
