    The summer is upon us and, with this in mind, we have selected a variety of paintings including some English and European seascapes, a Scottish landscape, a view of Venice and a Keralan beach.  We very much hope to see you in either the London or Hungerford gallery during the summer and (if you’re not basking on a beach somewhere) we will be open throughout August.
