American Art Collector – May, 2015

Peregrine Heathcote will exhibit in the show The World is Ever Near at The Falcon Gallery. Among his paintings are Let Your Dreams Set Sail…and Where the Wind Blows. In the latter, “The gentleman is about to get a fix on position with the compass, a vintage one given to me at Christmas by my eldest son, Harry, to use as a prop for the painting,” says Heathcote.

“He is wearing Persol sunglasses, and the clothes are inspired by Daniel Craig in Casino Royale…The lady is wearing a vintage Helene dress…” The island in the background is from the artist’s “favorite place of all,” San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice. Heathcote is working with filmmaker Dagmar Scheibenreif on a video that brings to life his characters, while featuring the artist and his paintings in Hitchcock-type appearances.
