Mr Earee, who died in 1968, was regarded as Sudbury’s finest artist since Gainsborough and an extensive collection of his work went on display at The Quay in town for a month from January 28.

The selected painting for Gainsborough’s House was chosen by Lord Phillips of Sudbury and local historian Barry Wall on January 24.

The collection of works is to be sold by Reeman Dansie Auctioneers of Colchester as part of their bi-annual auction of East Anglian art on April 10/11, and also includes work from Mr Earee’s daughter Joan Ascott.

For more information on the display, visit www.quaysudbury.com For details of the auction, contact Jonathan Benson or Daniel Wright on 01206 754754.
