Peter Brook, the pennies landscape painter, was born in the winter of 1927. He taught art at Sowerby Grammar School before coming a full time artist in his 40’s. Peter has painted many areas of the British Isles including Scotland, Cornwall and the Potteries but his first love is the Yorkshire Pennines; often in winter. His traditional paintings depict a vanishing world; a world of farmhouses on the moors, of mills and of people who inhabit the area. They include an element of humour, which is so much part of Peter’s character.
Peter’s paintings continue to show the beauty and vastness of the Yorkshire landscape and of the destruction of the Pennine life that once was. They show Peter and his faithful dog walking over the land, through woods or towns in search of new scenes or a cup of tea and perhaps being watched by the sheep. Sadly Peter died in 2009, but his paintings are still collected by art lovers and investor’s worldwide.
Peter’s work is held in the Tate Gallery and featured in its desk diaries of 2009 and 2011. The availability of his original paintings, and signed prints, is diminishing and prices are constantly on the rise. With investment in art being recently promoted in the media it is perhaps fitting that there has never been a better time to buy Peter’s work.
