Stud Muffin (VII)

36" x 24" (91 x 61cm)

Original painting in acrylic on canvas by Chris Gollon (1953 - 2017).

This painting was from a series of eight Stud Muffins, a Gollonesque take on ancestral portraits. Chris Gollon painted a series of debauched uncles, starting in the clothes of the 1920s and moving through the decades as clothes changed, each one shown lost in a landscape as if having partied all night. This one perhaps is the uncle from the 1970s. They were shown once in London all together , where they seemed like generations of a single family, as if belonging in a stately home somewhere. Most ancestral portraits being pretty boring, Gollon's depart from convention and show us the most colourful scions from an imaginary family tree.

IAP Fine Art hold the artist's estate and is currently advising a TV production company making a documentary on Chris Gollon's life and work, which will be released in 2024.
