Her Only Possession

William Lee Hankey (1869-1952)
Drypoint, one of only fifty copies, made in 1916. Signed below in pencil, with the artist's monogram lower left. Also stamped monogram on paper by signature. William Lee Hankey observed at first hand the plight of refugees during the First World War. Many of his beautiful drypoints portray young mothers and their children. See Pick-a-Back for another mother and child by him. Our blog on Lee Hankey is here.

Grave Robbers

Joseph Nash (1809-1878)
This drawing was probably a page from one of Nash's sketchbooks. The subject-matter is rather gruesome - the disinterment of a young woman, whose corpse is about to be put in the sack held by the man in the foreground. We have three other drawings by this artist, A-331, A-333 and A-336. For more information about Joseph Nash see our blog.

Home of the Yellow Flag

Henry Harris Lines (1801-1889)
Watercolour on prepared board, signed lower right and dated 1887. The partially legible pencil endorsement reads The bog of H.... home of the yellow flag. The son of the  influential Birmingham artist and designer Samuel Lines, Henry Harris's landscape paintings were widely exhibited. This impressionist rendering of a beauty spot - possibly Hillditch Pool by Hartlebury Common in Worcestershre - is one of his last paintings. In December 1887 he became bed-ridden.

L'Escarène near Nice

Charles Joshua Kelsey (1871-1960)
Pastel on paper, signed lower right and inscribed in pencil, L'Escarène 24/3/37. Kelsey became a friend of Samuel Birch RA, a leading light of the Lamorna artists' colony near Penzance. He took lessons from Birch and in the 1930s produced many fine pastels of scenes in the south of France.
A-431
Family Rock Pooling

Gustav Otto Müller (1827-1922)
Watercolour on paper, signed with monogram and dated 1884. Although primarily known as military painter, Müller also produced landscapes and genre paintings. For another work by this artist, see here.

The Artist's Wife
A-450
Herbert Johnson Harvey (1884-1928)
A portrait in black chalk and sanguine on grey paper. Harvey was a portrait painter and landscape artist, and in the 1920's made some striking etched portraits. We have one of these, Woman in a Headscarf  for which his wife was again likely to have beeb the model.
A-447
The Pelham-Clinton Twins
A-447
William Collins R.A. (1788-1847)
Signed and dated, Exhibited R.A. 1819, No. 23. One of the family portraits painted for the 4th Duke of Newcastle at Clumber Park, Nottinghamshire in the summer of 1818, this shows the Duke and Duchess's fifth and sixth children, the twins Lord Charles Pelham-Clinton and Lord Thomas Pelham-Clinton. Characteristically for Collins, the subjects aren't formally posed but engaged in an activity. He shows the boys leafing through - and tossing aside - volumes from the ducal library.   


Dealers in Fine Art 1800-1950

Our Business

Sigmund & Jocelyn sell paintings, drawings and fine art prints. Our collection includes work by well-known and overlooked artists from the last two centuries.

Based in Birmingham, we set up our business for art lovers who want an alternative to rural antique shops and London dealers. The enthusiasm we have for our pictures is backed up by research and hard graft! We also have restoration carried out so neglected paintings can be returned to their former glory.

Because Sigmund & Jocelyn work from home, this helps us to put our pictures on the market at affordable prices.

Our Artists

We sell nineteenth century artwork and pictures from the first half of the twentieth century.  

Sigmund & Jocelyn’s collection includes a set of paintings by the artist William Colllins (1788-1847). Another speciality is pages from artists’ sketchbooks, including drawings by Joseph Nash and Sawrey Gilpin. We also sell a variety of fine art prints, including etchings by William Lee Hankey and work by German artists from between 1900 and 1920.

Our collection includes a few more recent works by artists such as John Howard and Brigid Wright, who have West Midlands connections.

An Art Gallery With a Difference

A gallery is simply a room - or rooms - for the exhibtion of works of art! If you're interested in our prints or paintings, contact us and arrange to see them at Sigmund & Jocelyn's Birmingham home.
