Users Help Update Catalogue

Photos and stories sent to us.

Since the Richard Eurich online catalogue raisonée went live, we have had some appreciative feedback from our users including some very enthusiastic comments from Art UK and the NEAC. We thank all of you all for your support. 

We also thank the auction houses who continue to be dedicated users and helpers. Several recent auctions unearthed unknown Eurichs and allowed us to add images to known but unillustrated works.

What we want to give special mention to here though is the growing group of individual users who are sending us photos and telling us stories that enrich the catalogue. There has been quite a flurry of fascinating and enlightening additions recently.

Beach Scene (1951)

For example, someone new to Richard's work bought his first Eurich at auction. A short time later he happened to be researching another painter at the V&A and came across a set of Goupil Gallery exhibition catalogues. He stumbled on his Eurich in one of them and went on to find more previously unlisted Eurich paintings in unknown exhibitions. This new information allowed us to add or amend over a dozen entries in the catalogue.

Another new owner of another beautiful little Eurich also got in touch and sent us a very good photo of it. We knew the painting had connections to Sir Alec Guinness, but by putting together what the new owner knew, a bit of Googling and some Eurich family memories we managed to build up a more complete back story.

A long term owner who had inherited a painting from the Edward Marsh collection got in touch and helped us solve a mystery we had been scratching our heads about for some time. Click on the links to find out more.

We had a lovely surprise when a new (to us) 1932 Lyme Regis painting was brought to our attention by another owner who had inherited it from his grandfather. We were able to match a sketch to it.

Artist Stephen Gregory doesn't own a Eurich but discovered one listed in a catalogue he had from one of his own group shows. We had known of the exhibition before, but not how special it was. Nor did we know which Eurich was in it. 

So our thanks go out to these users and to all the other contributors not mentioned. You can find all recent changes to the site in the Updates section of the home page and a full list of them on the News and Updates page. Clicking on an update takes you to the work record where you will sometimes find the story behind the change, and links to exhibitions in the provenance bar where you can often find other updates.

If you have any memories or information to add to the catalogue, please contact us  through the comments boxes found on each work record page, via the Get in Touch page or email.
