Chiswick Auctions is to offer a rare series of works by the British artist Peter Samuelson (1912-1996). The series, titled Still Life & Fantasy were created by the artist in response to

Individual pieces of music by some of the most distinguished musicians in the Dutch Radio Orchestra.

Peter Samuelson (1912-1996) was educated at Eton, where his artistic talents were encouraged. He then went to study for a while in Paris. After art school he married and moved with his Dutch wife to Holland, where he worked as an illustrator. It was during this period that he spent time on music project, attending rehearsals at the Dutch Radio Orchestra. Here he observed some of the most celebrated Dutch musicians and captured the spirit of the music and the rehearsal on paper.

The series (lots 39-46) were obtained by the present owner directly from the artist. They are individually priced and set to be offered in an upcoming sale of Modern & Post-War British Art this Thursday July 4th, 2019.
