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 the current 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.
If you would like to own one of these works of art by the painter AND help support Russel’s bequest please email firstname.lastname@example.org or check out https://www.saddleworthmuseum.co.uk/shops/shop-online/
