'The Good Samaritan'
SOLD. Framed to museum standard, this painting shows Chris Gollon continuing with his religious imagery coinciding with his current national touring exhibition 'Incarnation, Mary & Women from the Bible' (pls see the Exhibitions page of chrisgollon.com for dates of exhibition in the ancient cathedrals of Norwich, Chichester and Durham).
This painting draws partial inspiration from the lyrics in Bob Dylan's great 1964 ballad 'Desolation Row': "The Good Samaritan he's dressing/He's getting ready for the show/He's going to the carnival/ On Desolation Row..."
Born in London in 1953, Chris Gollon is a very established and highly-acclaimed name in European painting, with many solo museum shows and museum acquisitions, including the British Museum. IAP Fine Art is a friendly gallery (with galleries in both London & Hereford). We help private and corporate collectors begin or expand their collections, and we also work with museums and cathedrals with regard to exhibitions and acquisitions.
