Erskine, Hall & Coe, Gallery
Erskine, Hall & Coe specialise in 20th Century and Contemporary ceramics. The gallery is in central Mayfair, off Bond Street, at 15 Royal Arcade. The gallery carries an extensive stock of ceramics, often including works by, Lucie Rie and Hans Coper, Jennifer Lee, Gwyn Hanssen Pigott, Shozo Michikawa and Sara Flynn. Its ten annual exhibitions feature the work of British and international artists, in some cases exploring the interplay between ceramics, sculptures and paintings.
Directors are James Erskine, Matthew Hall and David Coe.
Matthew joined Galerie Besson (2000 to 2010) to enable the gallery to expand its activities in the United Kingdom and America. In 1998 he had co-curated an exhibition of Phoenician ceramics and art from Lebanon and Tunisia, and the Fitzwilliam and Ashmolean museums. In 2000 he brought together 120 works by the painter Gwen John and exhibited them with 140 ceramics by the Viennese-born Lucie Rie at Olympia, London.
From 1994 Matthew co-curated a series of loan exhibitions over eleven years. The subjects included the sculptors Henry Moore and Fiore de Henriques, Tibetan Bronzes, and the novelist Jane Austen and her contemporary, the great John Constable. Latterly he focused on 20th Century British Artists such as Francis Bacon, Edward Burra, Keith Vaughan, Prunella Clough, Wyndham Lewis and Augustus John.
James Erskine & David Coe founded SEL, an international sports and entertainment group based in Sydney. In 2003 they opened the Liverpool Street Gallery in East Sydney, specialising in contemporary painting and sculpture by established and emerging Australian artists.
