Float mounted and framed, this painting (acrylic on paper) was part of Chris Gollon's national touring exhibition to English cathedrals, 'Incarnation, Mary & Women from the Bible'. The exhibition focused only on women from the Bible, shedding light on their plight, even those who are nameless such as Job's Wife. Here, 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. 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 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 page on our website. IAP Fine Art has represented the artist since 1993, and has exclusivity on Gollon's work.

We hold the artist's estate since his untimely death in 2017. A TV documentary is currently being made on Chris's life and work, due to be released in 2024.
