Jonathan Robertson | Elijah and the Angel
Oil on Linen | 20 x 22" | £2800
Jonathan Robertson was born in Banff in 1947 and trained at Glasgow School of Art. He has exhibited widely at home and abroad including the Artists Union Gallery Moscow, Barbican, Royal Glasgow Institute, Royal Scottish Academy, Scottish Society of Artists, Smith Institute Sterling and the Mall Galleries, London. His work is highly collectable and is now represented in the institutional collections of Arthur Andersen and Co., Ernst and Young, Scottish Television plc, Glasgow Art Gallery, the Universities of Strathclyde and Stirling, Hilton Hotel and Loretto School.
Jonathan is perhaps best known for his printmaking techniques and has had shows in both the Glasgow and Edinburgh print studios and a solo exhibition at the original Print Shop in Glasgow. However, it is Jonathan's recent oil paintings that have brought an increasing following amongst Thompson's clients. These are colourful oils populated with sturdy, naïve figures in narrative poses, each infused with a natural wit and good humour
