THREE pictures by Harrogate artist Emerson Mayes have been bought by the Curator of The House of Lords for their Permanent Collection. They will hang in the offices and communal areas of their newly refurbished office building, Millbank House.
The three pieces chosen were part of a recent exhibition by Emerson that was a major collaboration with 108 Fine Art and the National Trust, in a project capturing 12 months spent working at Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal.
Fountains in Floodlight captures the dramatic mood the Abbey takes on whilst floodlit in the Autumn, Where Turner Once Sat, Summer’ is a reinterpretation of a view made famous by JMW Turner when he painted Fountains Abbey at the peak of his fame and Bellowing Stag in a drypoint of one of the many magnificent stags that roam Studley Royal Park.
