Gaston Goor Pastels
Earlier today Keys Auction House in Norfolk auctioned off a reasonably significant collection of art from the estate of the composer Sir Malcolm Arnold. Among the pieces sold were a number of Gaston Goor pastels, all from 1945 and all with mythological or legendary subjects, possibly created as a set. There were other works by Goor in the sale but the auction house clearly felt they didn't want to publicly display them online. Some of these pieces are quite exquisite, they repay enlargement on the screen, and it is not, of course, the first time Goor has been mentioned on this blog.
