Painting of flotilla ruined by Diamond Jubilee downpours -

Painting of flotilla ruined by Diamond Jubilee downpours -

He was there to capture a unique moment in British history – but South Staffordshire artist Derek Baker’s big jubilee day was ruined when he got a right royal soaking.

Mr Baker was one of just 20 artists from around the country specially selected by the BBC to paint the Queen on her Diamond Jubilee flotilla.

The 51-year-old was given a prime spot on Millennium Bridge from where to capture the scene and all was going swimmingly. Until the heavens opened.
“It was one hell of a challenge,” Mr Baker said.

“You couldn’t even keep your brush level or keep the canvas still.

“I’ve never painted in conditions like it, but we cracked on and did the best we could.” Unfortunately the gusty winds and heavy rain were too much to cope with and Mr Baker, who was even forced to tie his easel to the bridge, couldn’t prevent the painting from being badly smeared and damaged.

And weather experts today said the gloomy conditions that marred the Pageant on the Thames will continue across the UK for the rest of the month.

With summer on standby, torrential rain and gale-force winds will engulf the country and temperatures are set to remain rooted at around 15C (59F).

Mr Baker is now planning to restore his painting to its full glory for a potential follow-up programme being made by the BBC – and he’s also hoping the Queen might get to look at the finished pieces.

Mr Baker, from Wombourne, added: “It was a real shame about the weather but I wasn’t too despondent. It was still a great occasion.

“I’ve got a few weeks to finish it now and the BBC will then put on an exhibition of the work.The beauty is I get time to repaint it and do a good job.”

He was using acrylic for the piece designed to capture the fun and energetic essence of the crowd, with the Queen and Prince Philip among them.

Painting of Christ Fetches $4.6M at NY Auction -

A 16th-century painting of Christ set a record for Italian artist Girolamo Romanino at Christie's Old Masters auction late on Wednesday when it sold for $4.6 million.

"We are delighted with the world auction record of $4.6 million," said Nicholas Hall, co-chairman of Old Masters and 19th-century art at Christie's auction house. He said the masterpiece was the most important work by the artist to come to market in more than a decade.

It was the top lot of the $12.5 million sale, which also set a record for artist Philippe de Champaigne, whose painting "The Holy Family with a Sparrow" fetched more than twice its $250,000 estimate.

In February, a U.S. District Court restituted Romanino's "Christ Carrying the Cross" to the heirs of Federico Gentili di Giuseppe, a Paris-based Jewish-Italian businessman and art collector who died in 1940.

It was returned to Gentili di Giuseppe's heirs only weeks ago, capping a more than decade-long process that began with a 1999 Parisian court ruling that nullified the 1941 sale of the his estate.

Several institutions, led by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, had works in the sale.

Two works by 18th-century French landscape artist Hubert Robert, "The Ruins" and "The Old Bridge," sold as a pair, fetched $1,874,500 including commission, well above the estimate of about $1 million.

A depiction of four figures representing the four seasons and credited to a follower of Giuseppe Arcimboldo had a presale estimate of $50,000 and sold for $662,500.

A Sotheby's sale on June 6 totaled $5.2 million.

This week's Old Masters sales were smaller than this year's winter auctions, which took in a combined $120 million.

Sotheby's upcoming Old Masters sale in London will be led by "The Feilitzsch Altarpiece" by Lucas Cranach the Elder, which carries an estimate of up to six million pounds (US$9.2 million).

Similarly, Christie's Old Masters sale in London will feature John Constable's "The Lock," which has an estimate of 20 million to 25 million pounds (US$30 million to $40 million).
