In these beautiful lithographs, artist George Shaw again looks to his home town of Coventry and how the landscape he grew up in shaped and inspired him.
With these two prints named Painter on the Road, one painted in winter and the other in summer, Shaw recalls walking along this country road located surprisingly close to the housing estate he grew up in (of which his popular previous work has highlighted in previous Holbalt paintings). Whether alone or with company (specifically his father who loves to walk out of the estate and along the picturesque road to a pretty village, seemingly a life away from where they lived), Shaw has walked along the road hundreds of times taking pictures and absorbing the trees, bushes and hedgerows so atmospherically depicted in these paintings. The title refers to a Van Gough drawing of which Shaw is also inspired. Whether you're as much of a fan of Shaw as we are here at BALTIC, or just discovering the renowned artist and his talent, these lithographs are the perfect next step in your art collection working just as strongly individually as they do together.
