Cavalier oil on canvas portrait by Alex de Andreis

STRATFORD ARMOURIES LIMITED
Cavalier oil on canvas painting by Alex de Andreis

Alex de Andreis was a French painter of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries.

Andreis’ subjects were mostly genre pieces set in 17th and 18th Century costumes similar to those of Stephen Lewin. His broad confident technique, which captures beautifully the play of light upon his images, is an interpretation that is highly original. Both the colour and atmosphere of his canvases come alive, giving his figures a natural environment in which to cast their spell.

Whether tavern interiors, figures playing chess or cavaliers admiring a new acquisition, Alex de Andreis fires the imagination with his images of a bygone age and presents us with highly decorative images which in today’s market, as in the artist’s day, are very collectable.

James Wigington has been dealing in antiques for over 40 years. The family business was established over 100 years ago in Shipston on Stour, Warwickshire, specialising in arms and armour. In 1932 James’ father moved the business and his family to Stratford upon Avon, occupying a shop opposite Shakespeare’s birthlpace. James’ late father was one of the early members of the British Antique Dealers Association (BADA). His late brother, Robin also had a shop and museum in Stratford, dealing in arms and amour, including the weapons of Tipu Sultan. Some of the weapons from Robin’s collection sold at Bonhams recently, achieving world record prices in the millions.

James’ own interest quickly grew to include early fishing tackle, antique furniture and works of art. In 2006 James and his wife Jayne built Stratford Armouries which houses a collection of Churchill memorabilia (formerly housed at Bletchley Park), a Wellington bomber exhibition and a small collection of antiques which he has for sale.
