Product Description

An unusual and rare oil on board painting of a Farmyard Scene by Philip Hagreen.

The painting shows some farm equipment in the forefront, with a lane, which is bathed in sunlight, in the background. The painting is in an impressionistic style, with elements of Newlyn School. The painting is signed P. HARGREEN 1910. The board is a pinewood panel, possibly from a door. The painting is rare because, Hargreen did not paint much and is much better known for his woodcuts and engravings. Condition is good, but could benefit from a bit of a clean to bring out the colours.

Philip Hargreen (1890 - 1988) was a wood engraver who was active at the beginning of the twentieth century. He was a founder member of the Society of Wood Engravers. He was closely associated with Eric Gill and was a member of the Guild of St Joseph and St Dominic at Ditchling.

Hagreen was the only child of Henry Hagreen, the drawing master at Wellington College, Berkshire. He studied at the college, but his education was disrupted by ill-health. He studied art in Cornwall, under Norman Garstin and then Harold and Laura Knight, and then entered the New Cross Art School. He enlisted in the army at the beginning of the First World War. He was a reluctant soldier, but felt that it was his duty. In 1918 he married Aileen Clegg; they had three children, John, Mary Bernadette and Mary Joan.

In 1923 the family joined Eric Gill at Ditchling, and moved with him to Capel-y-ffin in 1924. The climate proved too harsh for Hagreen and he moved to Lourdes with his family, where he stayed until 1932. He returned to Ditchling until 1959, when the Hagreens moved to Lingfield in Surrey. In 1973 they moved to a nursing home at Ifield Green.
