Artist / Helen Lundeberg
Helen Lundeberg was a profound thinker who started to paint and as such her work presents a highly intellectual response to art.
She was interested in nature, but not specifically in flowers or vegetables, in all of nature, from the smallest crustacean in the sea to the largest planet in the sky.
Indeed, Lundeberg was a dynamic personality and as she sought to investigate and understand life in all aspects, great energy bursts forth from her canvases.
At the same time however, she was a rigorous and careful scientist making what seems like a contradiction - to unite passion and control - in fact a very good fit.

Artist / Paul Delvaux
Paul Delvaux was a Belgian artist known for his oil paintings that merge the elements of Surrealism with classical forms. A reoccurring theme in Delvaux’s work are nude women, in various positions, wandering silently through classical buildings or train stations, combined with motifs such as skeletons, characters from Jules Verne novels, men wearing bowler hats, and other unexpected objects.
Deeply influenced by the works of Giorgio de Chirico and René Magritte, Delvaux’s scenes are characterized by long shadows and a distinct sense of anxiety and unease.
Artist / Thomas Cooper Gotch
Thomas Cooper Gotch or T.C. Gotch (1854–1931) was an English painter and book illustrator loosely associated with the Pre-Raphaelite movement; he was the brother of John Alfred Gotch, the architect.
Gotch studied art in London and Antwerp before he married and studied in Paris with his wife, Caroline, a fellow artist. Returning to Britain, they settled into the Newlyn art colony in Cornwall. He first made paintings of natural, pastoral settings before immersing himself in the romantic, Pre-Raphaelite romantic style for which he is best known. His daughter was often a model for the colourful depictions of young girls.
His works have been exhibited at the Royal Academy, Royal College of Art and the Paris Salon.
