'Women of Jerusalem'
Framed to museum standard, this painting is in Chris Gollon's national touring exhibition 'Incarnation, Mary & Women from the Bible' and in the exhibition catalogue. Chris Gollon has always painted the women to the fore when dealing with religious subject matter, and here he depicts the bravery and sorrow of the Women of Jerusalem who stayed with Jesus to the end at Golgotha. We are also challenged by the gaze of the Magdalene as she looks out at us. 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.
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.
