Carolyn Sergeant was a flower and landscape artist of great sensitivity. Her work ranges from freely handled depictions of still life subjects, interiors and the familiar landscapes around her home in the Welsh Marches to detailed depictions of single blooms set against rich, monochrome backgrounds. Carolyn Sergeant exhibited widely during her lifetime, with major exhibitions at Colnaghi, Hazlitt and the Fine Art Society in recent years.
This group of charming studies of the family’s Jack Russell terriers shows Sergeant’s ability to capture the character of the animals in a series of rapidly worked and freely-handled sketches.
