'Madonna of the Apple'
Framed to museum standard, this painting is in Chris Gollon's national touring exhibition 'Incarnation, Mary & Women from the Bible'. Chris Gollon in this painting of the Virgin seems to play with Time, by overlaying Calvary onto Nativity. The apple in the hand of Eve symbolizes Sin, but in the hand of Mary Salvation. See the exhibitions page of chrisgollon.com for dates of exhibition in the ancient cathedrals of Norwich, Chichester and Durham. This touring exhibition is accompanied by a full-colour catalogue, with texts by art historian Tamsin Pickeral and award-winning novelist Sara Maitland.
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.
