  • A Brief History of Father's Day
    This day of celebration for fatherhood is said to date back to the early 1500s when the Catholic Church supported its celebration on Saint Joseph's Day, otherwise known as 'The Feast of Saint Joseph'. The day reveres the "Nourisher of the Lord" (as referred to in Catholicism) or "the putative father of Jesus" (as known in Southern European tradition), and so was a fitting time to mark appreciation for Fathers.
  • What's Hot in May 2022 – Love, Laughter, and Lunar Celebrations!

    From ongoing pandemics to heart-breaking conflicts and rising heating costs, it has been yet another shaky start to everyone's year. But we're now nestled in the warmest month of spring, and hopefully many of us can look forward to brighter days to come.

    Joyfully, May kicks off with the feel-good observances of Global Love Day and World Laughter Day; both falling on the first day of the month.


  • Colour Choices in Our Homes
    We spend a lot of time carefully perusing paint swatches and flicking through fabric samples to find the colours that are 'just right' for our homes, even finding ourselves revisiting them and redecorating only a few years later.

    Not only do we make colour choices to reflect and help communicate the way in which we are currently feeling but we might also choose specific colours to influence how we aspire to feel.
  • Events in Britain in 2022

    There are some big things happening in the UK in 2022...

    The events calendars in Britain are starting to look a little more 'full' after a couple of years of non-events and cancellations.

    Not least is the “blockbuster” four day Bank Holiday weekend from 2nd - 5th June, in honour of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. After, on 4th February this year she became the first British Monarch to celebrate 70 years of service.

    The new year brings with it new hope and opportunities...and Collier & Dobson are bringing you all NEW limited edition prints.  Today we are thrilled to be launching a tantilising new collection of art to brighten your day - and your walls!


  • 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.
