One of our best selling films of 2010 was the one we made with Suffolk artist Miles Fairhurst demonstrating the oil painting techniques of Edward Seago (1910-1974). Seago who was born and lived in Norfolk has probably had a greater influence on popular English landscape painting than any other artist of the past 50 years. Sadly he died in 1974 - long before painting DVDs or videos were really being made and I have never seen any film of him actually painting. But I have just came accross a lovely short film from Pathé News showing him in action in the early 1930's. A rare gem. You can view below. You have to sit through a brief commercial first but that's the price we pay for free acess to this wonderful archive.
