Francis Hoyland (b.1930)

Untitled (The Art Studio)

Oil on canvas; 76 x 102 cms

There is a painting of a coastal scene on the reverse
Signed with intitials

A fellow student and teacher at Camberwell School of Art this artist's study of an art class in progress is of course much more representational in appearance. There is an almost religious contemplation going on here with a tranquil light irradiating the studio. Although sensitively painted there is a formal structure to the composition and rhythm of the picture.
