#paulanthonyharford @sadiecoleshq Untitled (self-portrait with ice cream cone). Absent from histories of modern British art, Hartford’s drawings offer minutely-detailed social realism. The artist Cecile Brown (his niece by marriage) recalls that, “his drawings were an inspirational presence all though my childhood. I found them mesmerising.” #sadiecoles

Can relate #paulanthonyharford @sadiecoleshq
Cecily Brown described the drawings by her uncle by marriage, Paul Anthony Harford (1943-2016), as “mesmerising”, and indeed they are. I must confess I didn’t know about this artist but this is a gem of a show @sadiecoleshq which was first shown earlier this year @focalpointgallery #paulanthonyharford #britishseaside #backtobasics #notabasicbitchtho

Paul Anthony Harford, “Untitled (artist looking in fridge)” (ca. 2007) @sadiecoleshq 
Sadie Coles HQ presents an exhibition of drawings by Paul Anthony Harford (1943-2016). First shown last year at Focal Point Gallery, Southend-On-Sea, Harford’s drawings – which range from scenes of everyday life to symbolist fantasies – were never exhibited in his lifetime.
Characterised by a minutely-detailed style and subtle tonal range, Harford’s drawings frequently evoke the life and atmosphere of the seaside towns in which he lived: promenades, pubs and pavilions serve as the backdrops to scenes of becalmed existence. 
Harford is a recurring character in his works, often seen in the midst of an everyday activity – stepping out of a car, shaving, or bent over his drawing board at the edge of his bed (his habitual mode of working). Sometimes he is turned away or partially obscured, for example as he sweeps the pavement, or sits in front of an electric fire, his head elided from view. In such instances he takes on a generic, semi-anonymous role.
His drawings carry echoes as diverse as the paintings of Stanley Spencer, the optical distortions of Max Escher, and the Modernist-pastoral works of Paul Nash. The artist Cecily Brown, Harford’s niece by marriage, recalls that “his drawings were an inspirational presence all through my childhood. I found them mesmerising.” 📝galleriesnow.net
