NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY - PAUL WRIGHT: FIFTEEN YEARS NOW ON SALE

Published: 18 August 2016


We're delighted to announce that our recently published book Paul Wright: Fifteen Years, is now on sale at the National Portrait Gallery! The book reflects on the career so far of twice BP Portrait Award nominee Paul Wright, and is full of illustrations and insight into one of Thompson's Galleries favourite artists.

Our recent exhibition to coincide with the book showcased Paul Wright's work during a fifteen year period, exploring his early illustratively styled imagery, mid-career large scale portraits, and his latest body of work of over 40 new paintings. Wright worked in oil, acrylic and ink on canvas, board and paper, displaying his accomplished technique across a wide variety of mediums and styles. Well known figures such as Winston Churchill, Laurel and Hardy, Buster Keaton, Albert Einstein and Abraham Lincoln were depicted by Wright as well as characters from his own life; friends, family and colleagues. 

Landscapes and still life also featured in the exhibition as well as a collection of Monotype prints which transfer Wright's bold and expressive brush work into a new format. 

We still have a selection of Wright 's work from the show on sale, which can be viewed by clicking here. For any questions or enquiries about Paul Wright, or any of our artists,, feel free to contact us.
