An interestingstudio of pictures by a Somerset artist are to be sold by Lawrences of Crewkerne.



They were all painted by artist John Cakebread, a well respected member of the Somerset Society of Artists. John exhibited at many localexhibitions during his lifetime, mostly around the Porlock area where hewas based.



The collection includes largewatercolours and oils, sketches and unframed pictures, and interesting oils from the 1950's onwards. They have consigned for sale by his widow and include local scenes, still lifes, and interesting contemporary pictures.



Lawrences Auctioneer Simon Jones said, "This is a fascinating collection, and shows the artists progression from simple watercolours through to more complicated Acrylic pictures in the 1950's and beyond. It's not often that a whole studio of pictures comes up for sale, and they should attract a lot ofinterest"



The pictures will be sold next week on Wednesday 2nd of February in Lawrences weekly general sale. For further information please contact Simon Jones on 01460 73041.
