RESEARCH WORK 

 

  • EDWARD SEAGO
'Ted' Seago is the subject of Anthony Russell's latest (10th) lecture. After much research and following ongoing discussions with the Portland Gallery, who represent the estate of Seago, it is hoped to give this greatly undervalued 20th Century artist the reputation he deserves.
 
Anthony Russell's father was a friend of Seago and first met him during the war.   Rodney Russell was another artist who remained a lifelong admirer of Seago's work, an admiration he shared with his forth wife, artist Pamela Russell 
 
 
 
  • THE BEAGLE - ON THE FUTURE OF SPECIES
In 2009, research was undertaken to support Sarah Darwin before an historic voyage round the world for Dutch and Belgian television.
 
As the great great granddaughter of Charles Darwin, Sarah was asked to set off with various other eminent scientists on the clipper Stad Amsterdam in a recreation of the Beagle's voyage.
 
2009 marked the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of his book 'On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection'

THE PUBLIC CATALOGUE FOUNDATION

In conjunction with the BBC, this charity has set out to catalogue the 300,000 odd oil paintings in public collections, including hospitals, universities and galleries. The Chandos assisted in achieving the now completed Dorset version of the catalogue as a hard copy publication. But it was always the intention to put the entire collection on-line and this has now been achieved
