    the Sir John Cass College before enrolling at the Royal Academy in 1949 under the tutorage of Henry Rushbury Copnall s early work was very much in the figurative style of the day as can be seen from the self portrait but towards the end of his time at the RA he began to become aware of the exciting developments happening within the American art scene This coincided with a trip Copnall made to Spain with fellow student Bert Flugelman when they hitchhiked down to Barcelona The plan was to stay for a month but the Spanish landscape had such a profound effect on Copnall that he ended up staying until 1968 Vertical Structure Red Yellow 1961 Mountainside Benalmadena 1959 Mountain Palms 1959 Mountain Forms 1961 Flugelman returned to London and Copnall found a small farmhouse just outside what was then the tiny village of Benalmadena Andalucia where inspired by a combination of his interest in Abstract Expressionism and the dramatic Spanish landscape he began a series of powerful abstract paintings He based many works of this period on rock formations and the heavy impasto paint seems to almost take on the very essence of the stone itself glowing in

    with one hundred years of art to go at there is something to suit every taste At the very top of the market there are the same clients but the real strength is in the middle ground between 10 000 to 80 000 One of the key dates for dealers and buyers is the 20 21 British Art Fair at the Royal College of Art in London from Wednesday to Sunday with 60 leading dealers showing works priced from less than 100 to six figure sums Unsurprisingly dealers are in confident mood before the fair Peter Osborne vice chairman of the Society of London Art Dealers and director of the Osborne Samuel Gallery an exhibitor at the fair says The increase in the number of galleries showing good works has helped to expand the modern British market and strong auctions have also helped to focus attention Buyers are also looking for areas where there is some investment growth rather than buying at the top of the market Most buyers are UK based but there is growing interest from overseas collectors particularly from America At the 20 21 Fair the Osborne Samuel Gallery will show a wide range of artists including the sculptors Henry Moore and Lynn Chadwick who is also the subject of a forthcoming exhibition at the gallery and a separate display at London s Canary Wharf which opens on Monday Another London dealer James Holland Hibbert of Hazlitt Holland Hibbert is similarly upbeat Modern British works were undervalued and have now been critically reappraised he says I have a lot of faith in the market and believe that there are a number of good artists who should have more of an international reputation At the 20 21 Fair his gallery will be showing work by artists including David Bomberg Barbara Hepworth and Ben Nicholson together with some by living artists such as David Hockney and Allen Jones With extra money coming in there could be a danger that the market could become overblown However Mr Holland Hibbert says It is not a bubble that is going to burst Ultimately the problem will be the supply of good material which may create a more pronounced two tier market with the best fetching big sums Interest in modern and contemporary Welsh painters is very strong says Martin Tinney whose Cardiff gallery will also be showing at the fair The strong demand for artists such as Sir Kyffln Williams has pushed up prices significantly which has had a knock on effect on other artists Among the Scottish galleries at the fair is Ewan Mundy Fine Art from Glasgow which will be showing works by the popular Scottish colourists The interest in artists such as Peploe Cadell Hunter and Fergusson shows no sign of diminishing says Mr Mundy Buyers tastes have become more educated and people are choosing to buy work from the colourists different periods and styles he says More Scottish work will be shown by the Glasgow Print Studio which

    Suzuki 250 Super Six which he rode to and from work during the week racing it at weekends As his success grew he progressed to a highly competitive 250 TZ Yamaha the workhorse of the 1970s national licence holder Help was also at hand in the shape of sponsorship from the White Elephant filling station in Dawson Street between Cowley Road and St Clements They supplied him with oil and fuel As word spread of this new talent Harpers the motorcycle dealers in Cowley provided sponsorship with a van to transport bikes and equipment to and from the race meetings His main achievements at this time were to win enough races to walk away with the North Gloucestershire Club Championship attaining his national licence in the process and to win the East Midland Motorcycle Racing Club s prestigious Rider of the Year award The Oxford Mall was soon recording his success rates but at the infamous Hutchinson Hundred at Brands Hatch a race that was run anti clockwise as opposed to the conventional clockwise circuit direction he experienced the worst crash of his career Approaching the steep climb to Paddock Hill bend another rider tried to overtake on the inside The inevitable collision sent Colin and his bike into the crash barrier putting him in hospital for three weeks with an ankle injury that needed metal splints which are still there to this day Carterton chicken farmer Harold Coppock a well known sponsor of leading motorcycle racers phoned Colin in hospital After hearing the bad news Harold loaded the wrecked Yamaha into the back of his van in a selfless gesture of support typical of those involved in road racing He returned the bike to the injured rider some weeks later in almost new condition The author centre watches as Barry Ditchburn prepares to ride the Silver Dream Machine built specially for the movie of the same name starring David Essex After his recovery Colin was approached by Clive Laws the landlord of the George Inn on the Botley Road Chive had purchased a 500cc Sparton from the renowned Caernarfon manufacturer Barry Hart Barry had built the famous Silver Dream Racer for the David Essex movie of the same name One Wednesday in 1980 I happened to be taking part on a test day at Mallory Park where British 750 champion Barry Ditchburn was trying out this particular bike for the film As I came out of Shaws Hairpin on my 750 Yamaha The Silver Dream Racer overtook me on its back wheel in a mindboggling display of skill and control Being on the track at the same time as Ditch was like practising at Wembley with George Best An experience one is never adequately qualified to describe David Essex astride the Silver Dream Machine in a scene from the film To progress to the higher plain of existence and actually race with World Champions like Barry Sheene is what Colin Byrne was now doing Difficult for us mere mortals

    assured that there was no going back to any serious competition on two wheels There was a clear determination to succeed with car racing at the highest level regardless of the armchair critics who were only too keen to dismiss his efforts We left with a personally signed photograph illustrated here and a heightened sense of optimism Following his steady progress through the ranks of Formula Ford Formula 3000 and so on right to the pinnacle of Formula 1 my wife and I tried to attend as many Fl test sessions at Silverstone as possible As a test driver for the Williams team it was difficult to tell the difference between Damon Hill s own incisive performance to that of the more experienced contenders he shared the track with It was evident that it was only a matter of time before his big chance came to actually race for the team This chance would materialise in 1993 Nigel Mansell had already won the world championship for Williams and after failed negotiations with the team for the 1993 season he flew off to join he Newman Haas Indycar set up in the USA Formula 1 politics immediately dictated that the vacancies within the Williams camp would be occupied by Alain Prost and Damon Hill Hill s established position as test driver for the team made the move to full time driver relatively straightforward His team mate Prost was the ideal master to acquire skills from with a cache of world championships already under his belt and a wealth of tactical knowledge which was his trademark The Williams drivers also had a mutual adversary in McLaren s number one the Brazilian driver Ayrton Senna and the opening rounds of the 1993 season produced some interesting results By the end of the season
