Provenance The Artist, from whom acquired by Private Collection, U.K. Their sale; Bonhams, London, 29 June 2011, lot 99, where purchased by the present owner Exhibited London, Austin Desmond Fine Art, Paul Feiler, Paintings and Related Works on Paper, Spring 1990, cat.no.52 (col.ill) Literature Michael Raeburm, Paul Feiler 1918-2013, Lund Humphries, London 2018, cat.no.123. (col.ill) Feiler’s artistic vision centred on the concept of “standing vertically and looking horizontally,” a philosophy rooted in Cézanne’s notion that a painting should offer an “abyss in which the eye is lost.” Transitioning from painterly abstraction, Feiler delved into probing the enigmatic qualities of space using narrow bands of colour, silver, and gold arranged in a pattern of squares and circles. This exploration, subject to variation and development, spanned over four decades. “Feiler is an artist who lets us really stand in front of a painting and give ourselves over to it and let ourselves concentrate, remind ourselves what it is to think about colour, form and that particular moment, to think about the relationship of painting to our minds and our world.” - Tom Marks

Paul Feiler (1918–2013) was a German-born artist who was a prominent member of the St Ives School of art. Feiler studied at the Slade School from 1936 to 1939. After the Second World War, he taught art in Bristol and became the head of painting there in 1960. He exhibited at the Redfern Gallery from 1933 to 1959, at the Royal Academy from 1943 to 1972, and has shown in provincial and London galleries and abroad. His work is represented in collections including the Tate Gallery. Initially influenced by Cezanne and by his Cornish environment, in the mid-1960s he parted ways from the landscape and began to work with a restricted range of geometric forms. He did not abandon all ties to the external environment in his abstraction, but played with light, colour and space to render this experience in pictorial terms. Condition Report: Framed: 43.5 x 30.5cm Light time staining. The medium appears to be pencil, pastel and oil on paper. Not viewed out of glazed frame.

      § Paul Feiler (German 1918-2013)

      Est: £800 - £1,200

      § Paul Feiler (German 1918-2013) Portrait of Bryan Edric Nevill Lyte, half length signed with monogram and dated 44 (lower right); inscribed 'PAUL FEILER / MAY 1944 / BEN LYTE' to the reverse oil on canvas, unframed 53.5 x 43cm Footnote: “Most of us perhaps owe an abiding interest to the enthusiasm of someone we met early in life, and Feiler has remained such for me” commented Bryan Edric Nevill Lyte (1925-2018), the steely-eyed sitter of the present lot, in his poignant 45-page account of his time at Eastbourne College. A talented sportsman, musician, and artist, Lyte, who was known during his school years by the acronym “Ben”, was a pupil of Eastbourne College’s Gonville House between 1939 and 1944. It was during this time, amidst the turbulence of the Second World War when the school had been evacuated from the south coast to Radley College, Oxfordshire, that Lyte first encountered Paul Feiler. Born in Germany in 1936 to a family of doctors and lawyers, Feiler, then aged 18, made the contentious decision to abandon a nascent career in medicine to study under Randolph Schwabe at The Slade School of Fine Art. In 1939, following his graduation and under the increasingly leaden clouds of political tension, Feiler, who was considered to be an “enemy alien”, was forcibly interned on the Isle of Man, and later in Canada. After months of internment, during which time he taught English and Art, Feiler was granted passage back to England where, in 1941, he took up the position of Art Master at Eastbourne College. Despite his commitments to the College and his pupils, Feiler continued to develop his own artistic talents and interests whilst working at Radley. Describing Feiler’s activities, Ben Lyte recalls the time dedicated by Feiler to capturing the “effects of sunlight upon the rusting corrugated iron roofs of farm buildings” and his preoccupation with the historical development of European art and architecture as evidenced in the surrounding conurbations of Nuneham and Oxford, which Lyte described as Feiler’s “meat and drink”. In addition to indulging his own interests, Feiler was known to have completed several portrait commissions at Radley, including several for masters or their wives and pupils for their parents; it is likely that the present lot was one such commission. Although the portrait of Ben Lyte appears to be completely discordant with the gestural abstract works that he is now celebrated for, the work demonstrates both the early influence of Feiler’s education at The Slade School and the dexterous handling of a skilfully modulated colour palette that would be an enduring characteristic of his work throughout his career.

      Est: £12,000 - £18,000

      § Paul Feiler (German 1918-2013) Horizontal Yellow, 1964 oil on canvas 30 x 40.5cm Footnote: Provenance: The John Ady Collection The present lot is to be sold for the benefit of Kettle's Yard, University of Cambridge Composed from abstracted shapes and rendered in a cool, tempered palette, Horizontal Yellow, was created during the period, between the mid-1950s and mid-1960s, when Feiler was at the height of his free, gestural abstraction and most closely connected to the Cornish landscape. So captivated was Feiler by Cornwall’s secretive coves and rugged, vertiginous cliffs that in 1953, together with his wife, he purchased a disused chapel and moved to Kerris, near Penzance. Feiler began teaching at Terry Frost’s St Ives Summer School, and his works were soon being selected for important exhibitions, including the British Council’s British Abstract Paintings; for group exhibitions alongside Bryan Wynter, William Scott, and Peter Lanyon; and for the Obelisk Gallery in Washington. From the late-1960s, inspired by the lunar landings and his ambition to capture ‘elusive space’, Feiler’s work became increasingly restrained and refined, with smooth, fastidious brushwork replacing broad strokes and confidently incised marks. Despite his drastically evolving style, the carefully modulated colour palette of slates, brackens and aquas inspired by the Cornish coast, endured throughout.
