British Art and Artists at Red Rag Gallery
Artist: Janet LEDGER

Janet Ledger was born in Northampton in 1934. She studied painting at the Northampton School of Art.

Janet Ledger's art work has been compared with L S Lowry. Like Lowry, who she met, Janet's misty industrial landscapes and paintings of people have a marvelous feeling for atmosphere and colour combined with a strong sense of observation of life. Few subjects escape her gaze, whether it be on holiday or at work, children at play or at school, the washing on the line, a city skyline at night, or the corner shops and back streets populated by buses, dogs, lamp posts, the occasional drunk or shoppers with prams. Humour and pathos in her paintings evokes another dimension, often providing the viewer a momentary smile.

Janet Ledger paintings have great appeal and can be found in many public and private collections, these include those of HRH Princess Margaret, The Coal Board, Marks and Spencer, MacDonalds, Mowlem and National Westminster Bank. Several pop musicians have bought her work and the Tate Gallery own two Janet Ledger prints. One of these prints was reproduced as a greetings card by Camden Graphics.

She was made an honorary citizen of Dallas in 1985 after a successful exhibition "Best of Britain". Janet Ledger's ability to capture the atmosphere and colour of a scene has made her work highly collectable.

As well as appearing at Red Rag Gallery Janet Ledger's work has been exhibited at many British Art Galleries including in 'London '77' at Somerset House which was a celebration for the Queen's Silver Jubilee. She has also exhibited her contemporary paintings widely abroad. Each painting at Red Rag is sourced from the Janet ledger artist studio and like all Red Rag British art and Contemporary art can be shipped worldwide.

This is the Seascape art page from Red Rag British Art Gallery featuring the best in contemporary British art. Throughout the year Red Rag features British art from artists who specialise in creating fine Seascape paintings. Today is no exception you will find Red Rag British Art Gallery has an extensive collection of Seascape art and paintings by leading contemporary artists.

Human beings have always had an intimate relationship with the water. Given the amount of the earth’s surface which is covered in water and the often unpredictable and life-changing nature of the sea, it is little wonder that seascapes have been such a popular subject for so long and no surprise that seascape paintings have an important place in the history of art.

Seascape paintings have a long history in both the Eastern and Western worlds.The walls of homes have been adorned with seascape paintings since the art of the secular painting first began to overtake religious works in numbers and importance.

As a country with an extensive coastline, paintings of seascapes have always had a special attraction to British artists. All the seascape paintings at Red Rag showcase the talent of British painters and their ability to depict changing light on water and rapidly altering climatic conditions. Many of the British artists who have painted these seascape paintings are also talented landscape painters, or worked in other genres as well as seascapes, such as still life or portraiture.
