‘The Young Falconer’ by James Exley

‘The Young Falconer’ by James Exley

Date Created: 06 April 2018

One of the more striking works is the ‘Young Falconer’ which was exhibited as part of the Festival of Britain in 1951.  Painted in 1939, this idiosyncratic painting exudes the style of the late 1930s with Mary Hills the sitter holding a bird of prey.

This painting will be offered for sale on November 22 with an estimate of £1,000-£2,000 alongside other portraits and a substantial collection of etchings and drawings also by Exley.
