  • Countryside Winter Walks in the UK, and Their Artistic Influence

    We are blessed in the UK, with millions of acres of glorious countryside in which to admire the flora and fauna, and enjoy a seasonal stroll. 

    So tumultuous and captivating is scenic England, and so keen the urge to indulge in a rural ramble, that both have been an influence to artists time and time again.


  • It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas - Symbols of the Festive Season

    Traditions of the annual celebration known and loved the world over stretch back thousands of years, with its roots in pagan midwinter festivals, later merged by early church leaders with Jesus' nativity celebrations.  The Christian holiday dates back to the fourth century and since that time Christmas customs have gradually changed over the years. But many of the ancient symbols and religious expressions of the season have been adopted and adapted, and persist to modern day.


  • Colours of Autumn and How the Changing Seasons have Influenced Art Through History

    As we make our way through October, the glorious colours of Autumn start to transform the landscape and the spectacular scenery and changing colours of our local New Forest National Park is hard to top.

    The woodlands and hedgerows are abundant with colour, from deeply hued plump ripened berries and chestnuts, to the fiery glow of leaves as their green pigment breaks down, revealing the red and yellow tints below.


  • Land Rover - A British Icon, and it's Depictions in Film and Art

    Take a trip to the Great British countryside – like the and it is quickly clear that it is home to some spectacular scenery, wonderful wildlife, vibrant village communities...as well as a good number of off-road vehicles.

    The most recognisable, perhaps, is the Land Rover – a national treasure which began it's journey in the late 1940's as the Land Rover Series I.

    Anthony Dobson's three limited edition prints Coming HomeOn Safari, and Breaking Cover, beautifully depict an eager black lab, excitable jack russell, and watchful spaniel peering from within or perched on top of these treasured 4x4s.


  • World Animal Day – Our Love of Animals and their Impact on Art
    October 4th is World Animal Day. It dates as far back as 1925 when Heinrich Zimmermann organised the first celebration in Berlin, the mission of which is to unite the animal welfare movement and raise standards around the globe, giving a voice to those who can't speak for themselves....The date was specifically chosen as it is the feast day of Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals, beloved among Catholics and recognised for his remarkable way with animals and all living things....All around the world, animals have a strong impact on culture, and this is especially so in art. The treatment of the animal kingdom has long been raised through the arts.
  • Enjoy a Collection of Canine Inspired Art this US National Dog Month
    National Dog Month in the US occurs during August and celebrates our canine companions. As any dog lover will attest, it is unsurprising that dogs are steadily the #1 pet of choice the world over.  The bond between humans and dogs is certainly a joy to behold, as are the many artful depictions of our puppy pals
  • Collier & Dobson Sponsors Golfer Corey Sheppard

  • Reclaiming Your Home and Decorating Your Home Office

    As we navigate our way slowly along the 'roadmap out of lockdown', and carefully welcome a select few visitors back into our homes, some of us may be finding that we now need to reconsider how we use our living accommodation ... and, indeed, how it is styled.


  • New Art to Impress Your Friends After Lockdown
    Though the government has recently postponed the full easing of lockdown restrictions, people are still allowed to visit each other indoors (*rule of 6, or 2 households apply as per guidelines in England). Whilst the extroverted are already jumping back into the throes of pubs, post-lockdown parties, and shopping trips, their introverted counterparts may be anxiously treading the water. To mark your ‘new beginnings’ with a warm, welcoming home, we’ve rounded up some brilliant pieces that will liven any space across a range of budgets.
  • Father's Day - Art, Accessories and Gift Ideas

    With Father's Day (Sunday 20th June) just around the corner, now is the ideal time to start looking for that perfect present for Dad. 

    It wasn't until the early 1900s that Father's Day became an official holiday – with the US leading the way as one of the first nations to do so. However, it is possible that the annual celebration of fatherhood could have begun even earlier. Evidence can be traced back to 1508 and a Saint Joseph's Day marked in Catholic Europe.


  • Hopes for a Summer of Countryside Shows and Equestrian Events

    With the UK following the 'roadmap' out of the latest lockdown, we find ourselves feeling hopeful for the year ahead. This is especially true when considering the return of the great Motoring, Equestrian and Countryside shows and events around the country that we so sorely missed last year. 

    This also means that Collier & Dobson will be back out there at shows this Summer, exhibiting our latest captivating collection of sculpture, original artwork, and limited edition prints. 


  • The History Behind May Day and How it Affects British Culture Today
    May Day (May 1st, or the 1st Monday of May) is known by many in the UK as part of a long weekend spent socialising in beer gardens or walking around the local countryside in the emerging summer sun. What isn’t always understood is the medieval origins surrounding this day, and the confusion between May Day and the Spring bank holiday whose roots came from more political circumstances.
