One of the largest collections of paintings by acclaimed Cumbrian artist Sheila Fell is going on display. The artist, who was from Aspatria, painted Cumbrian landscapes. Some of the works going on display at Castlegate House Gallery in Cockermouth haven't been seen in public for decades.
Many are also going up for sale for between £9,000 and £35,000. Steve Swallow, owner of Castlegate House Gallery, said: "Fell is arguably the most important landscape painter of the 20th century - Lowry called her the greatest landscape painter of her age."
