Mr Bowling terminated his contract with Hales Gallery in October 2019, because of its serious breaches of Hales Gallery’s agreement with him, including in particular its failure to account to him for funds received on his behalf from the sale of his paintings. Since then Mr Bowling has repeatedly asked for a proper account from Hales Gallery and for more than 100 of his paintings to be returned to him. [...] Mr Bowling is distressed that at this stage in his life he is forced, despite ill-health, to bring these proceedings against Hales, to recover a significant proportion of his life’s work as well as large sums which are due to him. The Bowling family is united in support of Frank’s determination to see his work returned to him.
Ms. Scott continued to want to act as the driving force for Mr Bowling’s artistic career and legacy. However, Ben and Sacha wished to side-line their step mother. The tactics employed by them (and particularly by Ben) in trying to wrestle control from her included casting doubt on her mental faculties as a result of her age. Such statements had no basis in reality.
