Quite possibly the greatest modern painter of portraits, certainly inovative in the way he painted flesh. Always extremely inimate portraits, as he usually only painted family and friends. Heard an interview which said that often he would mix the paint for each stroke, so maticulous. For-runner for painters like Jenny Saville, imo.
Wow, wish to see this. One of the masters of the previous century
I carved my initials in some girls behind[br][br]FS: 2 x Martin Whatson OG. 2 x Adam Smithmada OG. PM for pictures.[br][br]Looking to buy: Adam Neate streetpiece, Pizzabox or early canvas. Please get in contact!
One of the all time best! I read an interesting extract from Martin Gayford's book about him in which he said he needed glasses but didn't wear them to paint. With the result that his paintings can look photographic at a glance or from a distance (although it could easily due to his skill with a paintbrush). One of those artists who can get you to look at his paintings for ages. May have to sneak along if I go down south at any point. ;D ;D
