Client Testimonials

"We used Paul to help us organise a wedding in Ronda for my English daughter and Scottish son-in-law. It was a very tricky matter, because it is not normal for foreigners to marry in the town. Nevertheless, we persevered and Paul did all the interpreting, talking to officials and making phone calls on our behalf. Needless to say, the wedding went perfectly, with a large part of the thanks going to Paul."

The Gentleman Sculptor PDF

Paul Whitelock talks to the octogenarian artist Bayard Osborn.

altBorn in Manhattan in 1922, Bayard Osborn is the best known of the Gaucin artists and has lived in the village for over 30 years.
As a young man he didn’t train for anything, but was always interested in art and joined the Art Students League, but got angry and frustrated with them and left.
He also quit Harvard University, for undisclosed reasons, and started painting, before ultimately moving towards sculpture.
After living and working in London for a while, he moved to Gaucin in 1983, where his deceptively large house hosts a spacious top-floor studio, where many of his works are on display.
Bayard has exhibited in Europe and has sold sculptures to, among others, the King of Spain, Juan Carlos
Unfortunately, Bayard is inactive at the moment following a recent stroke, but his legacy is assured and there for all to see and enjoy.
He lives with Pilar, his charming Cuban wife, whom he married 40 years ago.
