John Cherrington (1931-2015) - 1982 Acrylic, Abstract Extrapolation



A remarkably vivid and expansive abstract composition in acrylic, by the listed British artist John Cherrington (1931-2015). Cherrington has taken his post-impressionistic floral style and further delineated the composition, arguably indicating the height of the artist's abstract oeuvre. His vibrant and dynamic colour-blocking, along with a contrasting palette, make this piece substantial in both dimensional and creative terms.

Cherrington's work borrows aesthetic characteristics from realism and post-impressionism, creating a perfectly balanced contrast. Cherrington's art historical knowledge allows him to combine traditional techniques with a contemporary approach to develop his own distinctive style.

Well-presented in a simple gilt wooden frame with rounded front, as shown. Signed to the lower left corner, and dated 1982.

On board.


In very good condition overall. The frame has some surface marks and scratches to the edges and corners.. The painting is only loosely fixed to the frame, and may need further support.


85.7 x 105.9cm (33.7" x 41.7")
Framed Size: 89.1 x 109.2cm (35.1" x 43")

Artist Biography

John Cherrington was born in 1931. He studied at Hornsea Art College, and moved to Paris at the age of 16 to study art and art history. Cherrington served in the Army for eight years, and afterwards qualified as an art teacher. He taught art in London until moving to Herefordshire in 1977.

Cherrington was a prolific but relatively unknown painter, due to his shyness and unwillingness to put forward his work. Despite this reluctance, many of his paintings were accepted by the Royal Society of Portrait Painters between 1969 and 1974. His wonderful sketches of local characters are full of expression and talent. He produced paintings of bulls for local farmers, and was known to sketch customers in pubs.

Cherrington said his art was “stimulated by the visual world around him, which he found both tormenting and marvellous”.

Cherrington passed away in 2015 in North Wales.
