Edward Holroyd Pearce was a British Judge. He rose to be Lord Justice of Appeal (1957-62) and Lord Justice of Appeal in Ordinary (1962-69). He retired from the legal profession in 1969 and became Independent Chairman of the Press Council (1969-74). He was a major art collector and became a very proficient artist himself, exhibiting frequently at the Royal Academy, of which he was elected an Honorary Member, and at the Royal Society of British Artists, of which he was elected a Member in 1940. He also exhibited with the New English Art Club and held a number of solo shows with commercial galleries. No doubt he was encouraged by his father-in-law who was the Royal Academician Bertram Priestman. He was knighted in 1948 and was made Baron Pearce of Sweethaws, Sussex in 1962. He died in 1990.

This is an oil on board which is housed in what is probably its original frame with hessian insert, which has become stained over time. The painting is in very good condition and appears not to have been varnished. It would no doubt benefit from a light clean and varnish and the stained hessian removed from the frame. Overall dimensions including frame 16.5(h) by 20.5(w) inches
Very good condition but would benefit from a light clean and varnish
