Peter Brook

Overview

 

Peter Brook was born in Scholes, West Yorkshire in the winter of 1927 to farmer parents.  He was educated at Goldsmith's College where he studied to become a teacher while he attended evening drawing classes and visited art galleries.  He returned to West Yorkshire where he worked as a teacher, first at Rastrick and then Sowerby.  He married his wife Molly in 1950. 

Peter Brook painted rural landscapes, farmhouses and scenes from different facets of British life and you can view a selection of these paintings here  He was elected to the Royal Society of British Artists in 1962.  Peter Brook’s paintings are instantly recognisable and often feature the bleak, wintry moorland landscapes of the Pennines, Yorkshire and Scotland with his trademark man and dog motifs, together with the occasional wandering sheep. Peter had a succession of dogs, all border collies - there was Bob, Tip, Tess and Shep, his last, who is often seen in his paintings, with those unique chevron markings on his back. 

We recently set the record auction price at auction for a work by Peter Brook when "Waiting for a Break" sold for a hammer price of £9,600.  His reputation and popularity continue to rise, and today there’s a ready market for his paintings and original sketches. As with all artwork, the value of Peter Brook's paintings varies a little according to the provenance, size and subject matter.  At Peter Wilson’s, our in-house expert Stephen Sparrow has years of experience in assessing and valuing Peter Brook's work, so do get in touch if you’d like to learn more about a piece you own or discuss a potential sale or valuation.
