Float mounted and famed to excellent standard, this painting (acrylic on paper) is in Chris Gollon's national touring exhibition 'Incarnation, Mary & Women from the Bible'. Chris Gollon has chosen not to make his depiction of Rachel gory, hence just the one spot of blood on her dead infant; instead the raw redness of Rachel's eyes show her pain as Herod has killed all the first-born infants. See the exhibitions page of chrisgollon.com for dates of exhibition in the ancient cathedrals of Norwich, Chichester and Durham. This painting is also in the exhibition catalogue, with texts by art historian Tamsin Pickeral and award-winning novelist Sara Maitland.
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.
