He was the grandson of Henry Charles Newton, one of the founders of Winsor & Newton, the well-known supplier of artists' materials.

      Algernon Cecil Newton R.A. (British, 1880-1968) St Paul's Rising out of the Fog signed with monogram (lower left)oil on canvas76.5 x 99.5cm (30 1/8 x 39 3/16in).Painted in 1949 Provenance: Probably with The Fine Art Society, LondonSale; Christie's, London, 6 November 1981, lot 177 (as Saint Paul's Cathedral), where acquired byJill Anne Bowden, by whom bequeathed to the present ownerPrivate Collection, U.K. Exhibited: London, Leicester Galleries, Paintings of London by Algernon Newton, April 1951, cat.no.10St Paul's Rising out of the Fog was until recently considered a lost picture. Known only from a black and white photograph and a preliminary sketch in the Tate Gallery archives, the Artist's notebooks detail that it was believed to have been destroyed in a fire. Its re-entry into Newton's oeuvre brings to the fore a concern in his work which has previously not been so overt. As a celebrated painter of dramatic and unpopulated cityscapes, especially of London, St Paul's Rising out of the Fog could be viewed as a rather typical painting for Newton. Yet its iconic subject, and the associated connotations in the immediate post-war years, set this canvas apart from Newton's more commonplace compositions. For his London scenes Newton usually favoured the then quiet and undeveloped areas of Bayswater, Paddington and the industrial landscapes along the Regent's Canal. Certainly, these cityscapes dating to the 1940s and 50s display a more sombre tone than those of the 1920s and 30s and Andrew Graham-Dixon remarks that in the later works 'war was surely there too...painted even as they were several years after the end of the conflict. It is there as absence, silence, shadow' (exh.cat., Andrew Graham-Dixon, The Peculiarity of Algernon Newton, Daniel Katz Gallery, 2012, p.10). Yet this reading of the work is subtle and subjective. It is the case that Newton, who was a committed pacifist, found that war occupied his thoughts deeply for some time following 1945. He drafted two short stories (never published) which presented events of the Second World War in alternative realities but these were to be kept private. St Paul's Rising out of the Fog can be seen as a much more public declaration of how the war had played on his mind.Between 1940 and 1941 London was bombarded by the Luftwaffe, with great swathes of the city reduced to rubble. Conscious that the city needed hope amidst the Blitz, Sir Winston Churchill declared that "at all costs, St Paul's must be saved". Although twenty-nine incendiary bombs fell on and around the cathedral, a concerted effort by a dedicated team of firewatchers meant that whilst almost every building around the site burned to the ground the famous dome defiantly stood proud. On the night of the 29th of December 1940 photographer Herbert Mason captured an image of the cathedral, illuminated by the fires and surrounded by smoke, which is now known as St Paul's Survives. The photo was printed on the front cover of the Daily Mail on New Year's Eve and became immediately famous. It has since become a symbol of British resilience and courage, and is considered one of the most iconic images of the Blitz.It is surely an image that Newton would have been familiar with and the parallels in composition between St Paul's Survives and St Paul's Rising out of the Fog are numerous. Although no direct reference is made to the image in the Artist's notes, it is most plausible that the photograph would have entered Newton's mind as the painting was being conceived. Showing the cathedral almost a decade on from the Blitz, Newton paints London smog and heavy cloud in place of the thick black ground smoke and billowing plumes of Mason's photograph. The surrounding buildings have been rebuilt, but are dissolved by Newton in a hazy fog recalling their once derelict state. Dramatic illumination from the blazing fires of the photograph has given way to a low, late evening light which draws focus to the ball and cross atop the dome against a peaceful blue, rather than the blackened and scorched night sky. Newton's St Paul's is calm and at peace, yet he is ensuring that its dark and turbulent recent history is not forgotten.We are grateful to Nicholas Newton for his assistance in cataloguing this lot.

Richards (the artist's brother-in-law)Thence by family descentPrivate Collection, AustraliaExhibitedLondon, The Royal Academy, Summer Exhibition 1940, cat.no.583"It was during that visit that I witnessed Algernon composing a painting. On a bitter afternoon walk when the sky was metal grey and a line of elms already cast long shadows on the snow, the three of them - my mother, uncle and Algy - were walking ahead of us chatting in a tight little group. Algernon stopped to fill and light his pipe. My mother walked on, a solitary figure, and I stayed politely with my uncle and host. He drew deeply and puffed and gazed at the trees and the shadows, tamped down the tobacco and then looked and looked again, breathing deeply. I wondered if the soles of my shoes might freeze to the ground. Many years later, I was startled and entranced to see that beautiful, still, petrified view we had looked at together, hanging in my parent's sitting room, and I thought what a wonderful memory he had. He had caught the bleak afternoon hour exactly." (June Wilmott Richards, niece of Algernon's second wife, Janetta)We are grateful to Nicholas Newton for compiling this catalogue entry.

That painting depicts the same house although from a different angle and is likewise unidentified (referred to as "A Country House" then crossed out and replaced with the phrase "A Conversation Piece"). The architecture possibly suggests a house in the Midlands, perhaps in Worcestershire or Shropshire. Like Newton's imposing oils, this watercolour still possesses something of the strange stillness that characterises those works. We are grateful for Henry Potts for providing his research on the present picture.

After serving a short time as Sub-lieutenant in the Royal Navy Reserve (1916), Newton began exhibiting works at the Royal Academy and the New English Art Clubs in the 1920s. In 1936 he became elected as an ARA (Associate Royal Academian), and was elected fully into the Royal Academy of Arts in 1943. During the Thirties, Newton became a pacifist, remembering the trauma of war and he moved to the country, painting dark sylvan scenes often with a sense of dread in the skies, thundery landscapes and forbidding trees. The present illustration of Bamburgh Castle displays Newton's famed style of creating a solitary atmosphere tainted with a sense of unease and the surreal. Newton dedicated his last decade of work to landscapes which are the feature in a number of leading galleries at present, including the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York. In 2012 Daniel Katz staged an exhibition titled The Peculiarity of Algernon Newton which featured the artist's work during the 1930s-40s.
