John Gascoyne Lake (1903-1975) Studied painting at Eastbourne School of Art 1918-25 and at the Royal College of Art 1925-29. He was later the curator of the Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne 1947-58 after which he retired/emigrated to Spain. Exhibited with the New English Art Club (NEAC) and with the London Group (LG). There was a memorial show in 1975.

This is the address of his page at the ARTUK site that has recorded the oil paintings (only the oil paintings) in public collections in the UK. There are 3 oils there.

Unfortunately, although his work was apparently exhibited in some very prestigious and expensive galleries, hence your high purchase price, the value of it hasn't held up. Sorry. There have been very few recorded sales at all which probably means they're not registering at much at all. Example is this at 90 against estimate of 200/300.

There are a couple of his watercolours for sale on Ebay at the moment, I just noticed. They've confusingly spelt his middle name as "Gascoigne", though, rather than how he apparently spelt it and re how he's listed otherwise. They're 380 each. Whether they'll sell at that is another question.
