    Hi his brushes aren’t for sale they are part of my personal collection. But I am displaying some work that is in Ye Cracke pub and I have some in my shop Collage Collectables & Fine Art, The Basement, 16 – 18 Newington (formerly Gostins).
    Dick was a very dear friend and inspires me daily, thank you Gerry for this excellent website.

      Lis – I’m very pleased that you found the blog, and that it stands up to scrutiny by one who knew Dick well (I didn’t, but instead have relied greatly on the guidance provided by Frank Milner, formerly of the Walker, who did know Dick; it was his paintings by Dick that inspired me to start this blog. I will certainly go along to the Cracke and Collage (I’ve corrected the caption) to see your Dick Young exhibits. Is there a closing date? And would you be interested in writing an appreciation of Dick to be posted here?

    There was an exhibition at the school of architecture around 1980 called something like Richard Young and his young contemporaries. The young contemporaries included myself, Peter Valentine, Janine pinion and a few others. I notice it is not in your list. Great site btw
