Our Fine Art and Antique Sale on the 23rd of May contains several fine collections of pictures by contemporary artists, including works by Martin Leman.
For many years. Martin Leman has been best known for his exclusive paintings of cats. One of Britain’s most popular artists, he also has an avid following abroad, especially in America and Japan. His 26 illustrated books have sold well over a million copies and his work shown at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 1998 was an instant sell out.
Martin Leman has been described as the most sophisticated of naïve artists but unlike many other naïve painters, he had a thorough artistic training. Martin Leman has had numerous one man exhibitions, shown frequently at the Royal Academy.
