21. German Talk – Follow-up ‘The Derbyshire Collection’

Hello German Talkers,

It was great seeing some of you yesterday, and I hope you enjoyed the talk and looking at some of the works from the Derbyshire Collection. For those who couldn’t make it, you can find the text to download and print free of charge below. Unfortunately, I can’t include any images, as most of them are under copyright and, while I was allowed to show them during the talk in a presentation, I am not permitted to publish them online (Please do not reuse/duplicate the cover image Janet in the PDF for any purpose.). However, if you would like to have a look at some paintings from that collection in our care, you can find them on the Art UK website: https://artuk.org

The paintings that were shown during the talk and are currently on display in one of our seminar rooms are:

Christopher Hall

Ashford Hill, Hampshire

Brindley Road, Paddington, London

Capo di Rio, Italy

The Beach at Marzocca, Italy

Wakefield Street, Bloomsbury, London

Edward le Bas

Band in Hyde Park

Edward Middleditch

Still Life, Blossoms

Ernest Perry


Frederick Mcdonald

Two Figures with a Machine

Fred Uhlman

New York

Hugh Verschoyle Croynyn


James Boswell

Shoreham Beach

Jean Young

Feeding the Pigeons

John Ridgewell

Buildings and River

Lionel Bulmer

The Greengrocer

Nan Youngman

El Cid at Peñiscola

Ralph Allen


Reginald Henson

The Fishmongers

Thomas Swimmer

Ruined Church, Casares, Spain

Night Fishing Lamps

Louis James

Still Life

Alan Price

You can search for the artist, the title of the image, or just enter ‘Aberystwyth University’ to find works from our collection on the Art UK website.

You can download the PDF with yesterday’s (almost) verbatim talk here:

I will publish the date for the next talk as soon as possible. It will probably be at the end of January.

All the best wishes, und vielleicht bis bald,
