Sketch for Woman Getting Ready For Bed
"The feedback I had from my recent exhibition in Monmouth suggested that some people preferred the sketches and studies to the finished paintings. Whilst most artists would consider their finished paintings to be their finest achievements, and I would agree with them, sketches and studies can portray an immediateness and freshness sometimes lost in overworking. These two new sketches are an attempt at that immediateness."
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 official information website: chrisgollon.com. IAP Fine Art has exclusivity on Gollon's work, and we help collectors begin or expand their collections, and we also work with museums and cathedrals with regard to exhibitions and acquisitions.
