Moving Day

In order to complete his latest huge commission for The Olympic Legacy Park, Joe needed to move to a studio with enough space for him to reach the bottom of the Canvas. The lovely folk at OVO, who's office is right next to Joes boat, offered some space in their building for a makeshift studio where the canvas could be elevated. The move, however, was delayed by three days by storm after storm after storm which would have made moving the canvas the 200 yards along the Quays a little hazardous. This morning the great man and the canvas were eventually ensconced in his new temporary studio. I informed Rebecca, the MD, that he expected to be there for a couple of weeks but warned her if they kept feeding, watering and looking after him in their usual generous fashion, it could take him three months.

Jack & Joel

Joe was delighted to welcome Jack and Joel and their parents on board his floating studio on Saturday. The young men, both big fans of Joes work were allowed to see Joe working on his latest commission and Joe presented them with a signed print each to take away with them.

A glimpse into Joe's early days as a painter

Baking Day at 43 Fitzalan Street   Those who know Joe would not describe him as an over sentimental or emotional man but our latest acquisition almost brought a tear to his eye.  He saw the huge 30”x 40” painting and stood for a long moment with his hand over his mouth,...

TRANSPARENCY TREASURE TROVE.

In the summer of last year when we moved Joe from his old boat, we took away a few old boxes and carrier bags of bits and bobs that Joe had accumulated over the last few years. These were sitting in HQ  gathering dust until our archivist went through them...

The School Run

We know the last year has been tough for everyone but as always it seems as though mums have stoically born more of the burden than most. What with working from home, having the kids at home and heaven forbid having husbands at home. We asked Joe if he could...

The Shackleton Bomber 1968

In response to our request to discover Joes long lost works, we were sent images of this work from 1968 which is clearly before he developed his own recognisable style. It was given by Joe to the family that owned it in return for a favour that the father did...

The Story of 'Dore and Totley Station'

Before the latest dreaded lockdown, in the halcyon days that were Tier 2, Joe and I did our bit to ‘eat out to help out’ by holding our “business lunches” in some of Sheffield’s delectable taverns. One such eatery was The Summer House at Dore.After one particularly long lunch we...

Joe 2021

Now that Joe has had both his jabs, it looks as though Covid is just another adversity in his long life that has been overcome and he’s looking forward to the coming year in his usual rude health. He said philosophically, “I know something will get me eventually but at...

Gone in 60 Seconds

“BUSKER ON EASY STREET” SELLS IN RECORD TIME. At the end of October a painting by Joe titled “THAT’S HIM” sold within 30 minutes of it being offered for sale.  We thought that record might stand for a while, but no. His latest work called “BUSKER ON EASY STREET” has...

Ambassador Joe!

Not only did Joe instruct us to provide a plethora of prizes for the Neurocare Charity Christmas Raffle, he also agreed to be an Ambassador for this worthy organisation. He’s not sure exactly what his duties will be at the moment but we know he will execute them with his usual...

Joe's Corking Calendar 2021

With the rising prices of Joes original paintings and even a basic signed print selling for £100, Joe has, for a while been concerned that a large portion of his fans and admirers who supported him through good times and bad for so many years could no  longer afford to...

On the up for Joe's Originals

With global interest now growing in Joes work, fewer and fewer are coming to the market as the investment potential of Joes work is being realised. Original Joe Scarborough's that do come up for auction now sell for double or triple the Auctioneers estimate which begs the question, where do...

“TEA TIME”

In our tireless quest to discover the whereabouts of Joes original works we have uncovered many gems but this one is very special.

Rush Hour, Holmesfield

After inheriting this painting, a lady from Chesterfield decided to do a little research. She saw the handwritten title and signature by George Cunningham on the back of the frame which led her to Joescarborough.co.uk, which is custodian of George’s archive. In that archive she found the actual two page preparatory sketch for...
