'Davey the Brothel Keeper (after Bob Dylan's 'Tempest')
Original painting in acrylic on paper. Chris Gollon enjoyed the company of musicians and had a lifelong love of music. Lyrics from songs often led him to ideas for images. In fact, one of his first major museum acquisitions was a major work on canvas entitled 'Einstein & The Jealous Monk', which comes from a line in Bob Dylan's great 1964 ballad Desolation Row. The painting was acquired by a major museum collection, and now hangs alongside works by Francis Bacon, Sir Jacob Epstein and L.S. Lowry.
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.
