2021 > ONLINE > “The Russel Howarth Collection” > by the Russel Howarth Trustees
Russel Howarth was a renowned and respected local artist with a 70-year commitment of unwavering effort to draw and paint the Saddleworth area. The link to an earlier collection catalogue pdf is here > Catalogue pdf. Depicted here is a self portrait, c 1955, which was displayed at Russel’s exhibition, “Saddleworth in a Lifetime” , which was held in the museum during 2017.
Following the death of Russel last year the trustees of the museum were asked by the Russel Howarth executors to act as the Russel Howarth Trustees for that part of the estate primarily dedicated by Russel to support and encourage artists and ceramicists.
All works are signed originals by the artist and the actual size of the work itself is listed and displayed here.
The works in these collections are presented as framed by the artist.
