The coming week is your last chance to see a retrospective of work by Frederick Gore RA (1913-2009) at Richmond Hill Gallery, highlights of which include a number of Gore's classic landscapes of locations in Greece, Majorca and France.

Gore was an enthusiastic plein air painter, as the clip above demonstrates. An extract from a longer film by Daniel Whistler, it shows the artist painting outdoors in France and discussing his approach to colour and composition.
"The film footage of Freddy at work in Provence lay unseen for 21 years," Whistler says.
"It had been shot by me on lightweight video equipment, as a family friend, mainly as my pilot for a TV documentary, which never materialised. I then went on to make other films for television.
"After Freddy's death at 95 in August 2009 I realised it was quite unique footage of such an energetic and magnetic character."
Whistler began editing the film last autumn, and it was shown at the private view of the Richmond Hill Gallery exhibition earlier this year.
