19th, 20th & 21st Century Artists

The gallery's artists include a number of well-established names, together with painters whose work, we feel, has a timeless quality.

Below is a small selection of the artists and works that we hold. If you would like to receive more detailed information about these and other artists, then please contact us and we will be happy to help.

Janet Ledger SWA
Janet Ledger was born in Northampton and educated at Northampton School for Girls. She studied art at Northampton School of Art where she was taught by Tom Wrigley and Henry Bird, her mother's cousin. She lived in Buckinghamshire with a studio in London before moving to Northumberland where she now lives. Her misty industrial landscapes and paintings of people have a marvellous feeling for atmosphere and colour combined with a strong sense of observation of life. The humour and pathos she evokes adds a dimension which allows the onlooker a momentary smile. Often compared with Beryl Cook and L S Lowry, Janet's studies are obviously in that genre, although her work has an additional quality all of its own. She was made an honorary citizen of Dallas in 1985 after a successful exhibition "Best of Britain". Her works are in numerous private collections including that of HRH Princess Margaret and in permanent collections of the National Coal Board, Marks & Spencer, McDonalds, the Mayor of Dallas Texas and the Tate Gallery.

GEORGE BUSBY MCSD, RBSA, GRA, FRSA 1926 - 2005
Born in 1926, George lived and worked in the West Midlands. It is from here that he found most of his subject matter. It is the old-fashioned shops, streets and houses and run-down areas, that are fast being replaced by soulless estates and concrete jungle, that George tried to preserve in his pictures. Having trained in graphic design and illustration, his painting had a surety of line and perspective that shows true draughtmanship. He was a leading member of the Royal Society of Birmingham Artists. His work is represented in the National Library of Wales, the private collection of HRH Princess Margaret and many other private collections.
