A great example of work in oil by the acclaimed British artist Martin Fuller. With clear influences of modern art, Fuller depicts a vibrant abstract portrait of a man. Both the colour palette and impasto application of the oil paint highlight the artist's proficiency in the medium and subject. Title, signature and date inscribed on the canvas to the reverse. Attached is a leaflet of Martin Fuller's 2001 retrospective exhibition curated by William Packer. There is a Royal Academy of Arts framing label to the reverse. Well-presented in a wooden frame with gilt detail. On canvas on stretchers.
