An exhibition not to miss! While many outside the Art collecting world will only know of Percy French for his humourous song writing, his reputation as a watercolourist is gaining in stature with every passing year. His paintings continue to turn up at auction quite often with prices still in the affordable bracket and their value is sure to appreciate – unlike bank shares! “The Grand Canal“ (above) was painted in 1896 but sadly is only on loan to the exhibition.
