Richard Whincop (b.1964) - Fine 2005 Oil, Viewing the Elgin Marbles
DescriptionA very fine, almost hyper-realist work in oil by the British artist Richard Whincop (b.1964), entitled 'Viewing the Elgin Marbles'. The subject is somewhat contentious, as the Elgin Marbles, or Parthenon Sculptures, are known for the colonial manner in which they were brought to London. Whincop emphasises the dialogue between the past and the present, and this finely detailed work speaks volumes on the subject. Well-presented in a black painted wooden frame, as shown. Signed and dated. On board.
In fine condition overall. The frame has some minor surface marks and scuffing to the corners.

Richard Whincop (b.1964) is a British painter, usually in oil and acrylic, combining realism, drama and a rich palette. Born in Fordingbridge, Hampshire, he graduated in Art History at York University in 1986, going on to become established as a figurative painter in Glasgow. From 2006 he had a series of solo shows, including "Museum Pieces", which opened in 2010 at Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Museum. Richard has completed major public commissions at home and abroad, and exhibits at galleries and art fairs throughout the UK and Ireland. His figurative work creates a dialogue between past and present, through a poetic combination of contemporary figures with elements from works of art of the past, and from the natural world.
