Richard Eurich has at various times been compared to both Giorgio Morandi and the Italian Modernists, and to Franz Radziwill and the German ‘magic realists’. His paintings often appear disarmingly simple, and are imbued with a delicate and highly personalised sense of mystery and wonder, but they remain quintessentially English.
We are delighted to exhibit a group of 25 oil paintings by Richard Eurich, including a group of charmingly eccentric small portraits, two of his New Forest scenes, and a number of the distinctive coastal and beach scenes for which he is best known.
The exhibition is presented in association with the Richard Eurich Estate who have just launched the online Catalogue Raisonné of Richard Ernst Eurich RA - https://richardeurich.co.uk. This is an important resource on the artist, following on from the major catalogue published in 2003 to accompany the travelling museum show ‘Richard Eurich (1903-1992) - Visionary Artist’, and the monograph ‘The Art of Richard Eurich’ by Andrew Lambirth, published in 2020. Unlike the books, the online Catalogue Raisonné remains a work in progress, so if you own a painting by the artist that you would like recorded there, please send us details.
An illustrated price list of the exhibition is available upon request.
