'Morning (II)'

Printed image size
24" x 36" (61 x 91cm)

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.

For further details on the recent books published on his work, public commissions, press coverage, visit the artist's page on our website. Having worked with Chris since 1993, following his untimely death in 2017, we hold the artist's estate. We are also advising on a TV documentary currently being made on Chris's life and work, to be released in spring 2024.

In 2016, Chris Gollon was experimenting with his own form of grisaille, a technique Breughel used in his last works, such as Death of the Virgin. Grisaille means using a very restricted palette, almost always black and white, sometimes with a touch of yellow or burn ochre.

Chris Gollon was a great colourist, and in this image perhaps of the morning after the night before, he chose to make his own grisaille, by using only black, white and burnt Sienna. In 2016, he made a short series of cover versions in grisaille of his own previous works, to experiment, very successfully with the technique. This painting is a version of his previous painting 'Morning', now in a private collection, and featured in Tamsin Pickeral's 2010 monograph 'Chris Gollon: Humanity in Art' (available in our gallery online shop).
