The First 15 in The Art of Sherlock Holmes Collection Revealed!

Story by - Sally Hubbard

The artwork is now for sale via The Conan Doyle Estate online shop - which also introduces The Art of Sherlock Holmes Team and the great causes this project supports including Stepping Stones School at Undershaw, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s former home.

The Conan Doyle Estate has also authenticated each piece of artwork with the Estate's trademark.

The Art of Sherlock Holmes

This project was conceived by and is curated by Phil Growick. Phil ran one of the world’s leading executive search firms in the advertising industry, placing senior creatives in major agencies worldwide. Phil’s network in the creative world is unparalleled which is perfect for artist acquisition. Now living in West Palm, Phil is heavily involved in the local art community and as a two-time Sherlock Holmes novelist in his own right came up with the concept of combining two of his passions – art and Holmes.

Over to Phil...

"Each artist has had a story assigned to them – specifically dependent on the particular talent of each artist. Whether the interpretations be forms of abstract, contemporary, realist, minimalist, symbolism, or an amalgam of various forms, each piece of art created is unique, hypnotic, mesmerizing and unforgettable. Each created specifically to express the essence of each incredible Holmes story. The stories range from the impossibly baffling (except for Holmes) to the humorous, paranormal, or simply intellectually intricate. You’re presented with murder, theft, treason, betrayal, love, loss and greed. All the ingredients to make a delicious Holmes meal of mystery. But please remember, art is in the eye of the beholder. So, we hope you’ll appreciate each creation for what it is: an inimitable interpretation of a truly unique Holmes story."

The Art of Sherlock Holmes is truly unique. Holmes short stories interpreted by some of the most accomplished artists in the world. In the first edition alone, between them, the artists have art hanging in over 100 museums and galleries in the world including the Smithsonian, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney, The Guggenheim and many more.
