Anthony Daley Son of Rubens
Abstract Expressionist painter Anthony Daley will present a new body of work, which explores his career-long fascination with the work of 17th century Flemish artist Peter Paul Rubens. Rubens was famed for his mastery of colour and texture through the medium of paint. Inspired by the Gallery’s collection, Daley will reveal how the art of the past continues to offer fresh source material.
Daley moved to the UK from Jamaica in 1972, studying at Wimbledon College of Arts in 1982 and Chelsea College of Arts in 1983. Daley was awarded the Pollock-Krasner Painting Fellowship in 1984 and has been the subject of more than 25 solo exhibitions internationally, including exhibitions in London, New York, Los Angeles and Zurich. His work is held by major public institutions including Tate and National Portrait Gallery.
This display is part of the Gallery's new Unlocking Paintings series, an ambitious run of displays that will present new perspectives on its collection, inviting artists and thinkers to interpret historic themes for contemporary audiences.
