WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT THIS FAIR:

Art dealers always surprise at Galloway Fairs with an exciting collection to show and at Duncombe Park Antiques & Fine Art Fair, Rowles Fine Art will show a Brian Shields oil entitled 'Holding my Dad's Pint'.


Brian Shields was born in Liverpool in 1951, His father Dennis Shields was a highly regarded artist but with a large family of 12 children was unable to support his family through painting alone. Brian's eldest brother pursued a successful career in America as a sculptor.  The unusual name of 'braaq' is a misspelling of the famous French artist Braque which, on account of his artistic talent as a boy, was his nickname at school. The name 'Ann' after his own signature was his sister who died at the young age of 21 and to whose memory all of his subsequent paintings were dedicated.  Brian was discouraged from becoming a professional artist and after leaving school became a trainee chef in a somewhat drab hotel in Harrogate. In an attempt to brighten the place he painted a mural. This mural caused a great deal of interest in the area but as he had signed it 'Braaq', the true identity of the artist remained a mystery until a local journalist identified Brian Shields as the painter.  From this point he never looked back, holding his first exhibition in 1974. In 1977 he was invited to hold his first of four exhibitions in London's West End. It was after this exhibition that The Times newspaper described him as 'one of the six most successful artists in England'.

Duncombe Park is one of Yorkshire's foremost historic houses and estates, and home to The Duncombe Family. The original house was built in 1713 for Thomas Duncombe, and following a fire in 1879, the first Earl of Feversham remodelled the interiors. Following the death of the second Earl of Feversham at The Battle of The Somme in 1916, Duncombe Park was leased as a girl’s school, but was returned to a loving family home in 1985 when it was lovingly restored and refurbished.

It is set in 300 acres of dramatic parkland just 3 minutes from the beautiful village of Helmsley which has a wonderful range of stylish shops, hotels, pubs and delicatessens.

Although the house is no longer open to the public, visitors to the Duncan Park Antiques & Fine Art Fair will offer the public a unique opportunity to look around the whole house including the old servants' quarters where the fair is held. The grounds will also be open to fair visitors.
