London-born British artist Chris Gollon (1953 - 2017) was a very established and critically-acclaimed name in European painting, with many solo museum shows and museum acquisitions, including the British Museum. For further details on the recent books published on his work, public commissions, press coverage, visit the artist's official information website: chrisgollon.com. IAP Fine Art has exclusivity on Gollon's work, and we help collectors begin or expand their collections, and we also work with museums and cathedrals with regard to exhibitions and acquisitions.
Edition of 100, signed and numbered by Chris Gollon. In 2005, Chris Gollon chose to work with master printmaker Ian Wilkinson at the Cambridgeshire-based Limberhurst Press print studio. Ian has worked with many leading contemporary artists including Paula Rego, John Bellany, Eduardo Paolozzi, Elizabeth Frink and Anthony Gormley. In a very creative, technical collaboration with Ian Wilkinson, and using nineteen silk-screens, Chris Gollon produced Einstein, his first edition of silk-screen prints. Published by IAP Fine Art, Einstein is edition of 100 screenprints, each signed and numbered by the artist and made to celebrate 2005 as the centenary of Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity. This strong and richly-coloured image has an extraordinary, iconic gold background, which has the effect of a gold, reflective river when viewed from different angles.
This silk-screen print also has museum provenance, since it was shown in the solo exhibition at Huddersfield Art Gallery to mark the aquisition for the museum’s permanent collection of the large painting ‘Einstein & The Jealous Monk’ by Chris Gollon, for which this print is also a study.
In 2006, the copyright was leased from Chris Gollon (for this image and two others) via the Bridgeman Art Library to Random House Publishing in New York for use on the cover of a new book entitled My Einstein edited by John Brockman. Price shown is unframed. Framed price £680.
