“Captain Redbeard” (1993) – Oil on canvas board 14x20cm by Lance Neal
“I must be the most famous unknown artist and the oldest “blue baby” in the world. Born in Cashmere, Washington, U.S.A., in 1944, I wasn’t expected to live longer than four to five years. Around two years of age I began to draw”. – Lance Neal. As a result of his heart condition Lance’s childhood was limited to observing nature and those around him, and painting. He sold his first painting when he was 14 years old and since then he has made a living from his art. Although he has painted some 1,300 oil paintings and about 4,000 elaborate drawings, he is still “unknown”, as most of his paintings were sold direct and are private collections all over the world, especially in the U.S.A., Japan and Ireland. Lance had his own personality of his subjects, in landscapes and seascapes he reproduces the atmosphere, tranquillity, serenity or the turmoil of the scene. Known for his exceptional talent and also his unique personality, Lance was universally loved by those who met him. His ability to talk to anyone, from all walks of life endeared him to everyone he knew. Possessing a vast wealth of knowledge on madly diverse subjects, Lance also had a wicked sense of humor and a kind heart. A gentleman, a lover of Guinness, a ‘rolly’ and having the ‘craic’, Lance was truly one of a kind.

Market Day, Ganges, France. (oil) by Arthur K Madderson)
Arthur K. Maderson was born in London in 1942, and studied at the Camberwell School of Art, London, from 1959-1963. In 1963 he won the Anna Berry Award in open competition with all final year art graduates.
Maderson is primarily concerned with the depiction of light – a similar preoccupation of the nineteenth century French Impressionists. He has adopted some of the same techniques as the Impressionists, using broken brush strokes of thickly applied paint and vibrant juxtapositions of colour. He has tended to concentrate on one particular thematic series at a time, the most notable being the Lismore River series and Tallow Horse Fair series. He exhibits regularly at the RA and the RHA and has been an award winner at the latter. Maderson is included in a list of 17 of the world’s most successful and popular figurative painters in the book Modern Oil Impressionists by Ron Hanson. Maderson divides his time between West Waterford and the South of France. His work is well represent in major public and private collections.
