Derbyshire Artist to Bounce Back with New Exhibition This Week!

Reading Time: 1 minute

An artist who’s renowned for his paintings of ships and seascapes is to hold his first exhibition following a stroke and double knee operation.

Sixty-Four year old James Brereton from Derby, has sold his work for thousands, but had to stop painting due to ill health in 2015.

Mr Brereton said he had a “rough time” after suffering a stroke under anaesthetic during his operation and later dislocating his arm in a fall.

However, he was determined to paint again and has since created new pieces.

Mr Brereton, who studied at the Joseph Wright School of Art, said he has sold around 500 maritime paintings since 1982, one of which went for £7,000 at Sotheby’s.

“Art was the only thing I was good at, I hated maths and English,” he said.

His new paintings will be exhibited at Hansons Auctioneers, Etwall, on Monday and Tuesday.
